Reuters/Ipsos Mass Deportations Poll Viewed As Last Stand To Derail U.S. Immigration Reform

The latest online poll released by Reuters/Ipsos claiming a majority of Americans want mass deportations of Illegals has given slight hope for anti-immigrant groups and supporters to attempt and regain momentum to block or derail the current interest surge for immigration reform by both Democrats and Republicans to pass a fair federal bill granting a path to citizenship to millions of undocumented immigrants residing in the U.S.

Washington,  D.C. - On Wednesday,  Reuters released a Reuters/Ipsos online poll suggesting that a majority of U.S. Citizens want most or all of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants deported. An article from Reuters claims it conducted an online survey from Friday through Tuesday and polled about 1,443 people over the age of 18 with a credibility interval of plus or minus 2.9 intervals percentage points, which a majority of those polled or 30% believe that most illegals should be deported with some exceptions and another 23% believe that all illegal immigrants should be deported.
Those polled by Reuter/Ipsos hardly represent a majority of U.S. Citizens and the poll seemed to leave out an important question as well, "Would a catastrophic economic effect occur in the U.S., if most or all illegal immigrants were actually deported?" Most federal politicians and the Obama administration know the catastrophic economic impact it would cause the country, if in fact most or all illegal immigrants were deported.
Currently, three versions of a proposed immigration reform bill is being drafted by the U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate and the Obama administration. 
The November presidential election and the re-election of President Barack H. Obama who strongly campaigned for immigration reform for a second time is testiment of what is to come in the near future. He also received a majority of votes by U.S. Citizens who expect Obama to finally deal and resolve the immigration reform issue. 
Even the GOP and most of the extreme conservative Republicans who were anti-immigrant have jumped on the bandwagon to support immigration reform in an attempt to sway a significant number of the Hispanic voting block to their corner for the upcoming 2016 presidential election. 
One thing for sure Americans will see in 2013, that a just comprehensive immigration reform bill will most likely be introduced and will eventually pass by a bipartisan Congress, which no doubt President Obama will most likely sign it into law.
