Survey Results: Value Votes Immigration Survey

The results are in via FRC. Make sure to read the whole thing. Here are a few that caught my attention.

To values voters, judicial activism continues to be a priority.

1. In order of importance, with number "1" being the most important issue, and number "5" the least important, and using only one number for each issue, where would you rank the following issues?

Judicial activism

21%

Reforming health care

6%

Protecting man-woman marriage

19%

Protecting human life from abortion

37%

Stopping illegal immigration

17%


Interesting. For all the religious groups that are involved in the mass rallies, it is clear that there are plenty of good people of faith that find enforcement of our laws consistent with the Judeo-Christian worldview. I would have liked to have seen this question posed about legal immigration--Legal immigrants enter the United States as strangers searching for a better life for themselves and their families and they should be welcomed. What do you think? Leave your vote in the comments section.

3. My view of the requirements of Christian discipleship accords best with the following statement about illegal immigrants:

Illegal immigrants enter the United States as strangers searching for a better life for themselves and their families and they should be welcomed, not punished or sent home.

10%

Illegal immigrants should be treated humanely, but they are breaking properly enacted laws and they should be detected, arrested, and returned to their country of origin.

90%


The message is clear--secure the border.

6. The United States Congress should, if necessary, build a border fence along the U.S. - Mexican border and deploy U.S. armed forces:

Strongly Agree

59%

Agree

23%

Neutral

9%

Disagree

6%

Strongly Disagree

3%
