As the Senate takes up debate on immigration reform and the right wing steps up its inflammatory rhetoric, a new poll released today finds that about 2/3 of legal immigrants in the United States believe anti-immigrant sentiment is growing and is fueled by racism.

    Additionally, 68 percent of the respondents favored the McCain-Kennedy immigration bill. Nineteen percent favored Bush’s temporary worker proposal and only eight percent favored the House’s enforcement-only bill.
