2* How would you rate the federal government’s handling of the illegal immigration problem in this country – excellent, good, fair or poor?


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* At least one state is planning to use its National Guard to halt the flow of illegal immigrants into the country. Do you favor or oppose your state using its National Guard if necessary to deal with illegal immigration?


5* Should the federal government be required to reimburse states that feel compelled to use their National Guard to deal with illegal immigration?
