1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about President Obama’s new immigration plan?
2* Seventeen 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?
3* If a state believes that the federal government is not enforcing the current immigration laws, should that state have the right to enforce the laws on its own?
4* Which is more important to President Obama – preventing further illegal immigration or making it easier for illegal immigrants to become U.S. citizens? Or does he consider the two of equal importance?
5* 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?
