1* President Obama has ordered that nearly five million illegal immigrants be allowed to remain in this country legally and apply for jobs. Those affected are mostly parents of those here legally or children born in this country to illegal immigrant parents. Do you favor or oppose the president’s plan?

 

2* When it comes to immigration, should President Obama take action alone if Congress does not approve the initiatives he has proposed or should the government do only what the president and Congress agree on?

 

3* Does the president have the legal authority to grant amnesty to several million illegal immigrants without the approval of Congress?

 

4* Twenty-six states are suing the Obama administration over the president’s decision to exempt up to five million illegal immigrants from deportation. Would you favor or oppose your state suing the administration over this new immigration policy?

 

5* How likely is it that the Obama administration's decision to allow thousands of young illegal immigrants to remain in this country last year will encourage more illegal immigration by young people this summer?
