Being from the State of Ohio and seeing this article and what it says is crazy. Apparently ‘Timberlake and Rhys surveyed more than 2,100 Ohioans about their attitudes toward four groups: Europeans, Asians, Middle Easterners and Latinos, specifically’ they didn’t interview the right 2,100 Ohioans that live in Cities where Immigrants are destroying cities(job losses, property values, education, health, crime,drugs, gangs ) or interview about the correct demographics of said Immigrants, Illegals, Refugees.
Immigrants from the 1800's came here legally on ships, needed a sponsor, a Job. If they had disease or illness they were forbidden from entering and turned away, but today they have it ass backwards, allowing refugees, illegals and immigrants into the country to live on the Americans tax dollar(housing, transportation, tax free living for 5-7 years food stamps, other subsidies and SSI(social security income) and they have never paid into it, carrying known infectious diseases such as TB,polio, aids etc. Before they had those that had TB including citizens in TB Hospitals under quarantine, now they are free to roam the streets and pass along this communicable disease.(check out your state/county health department sites)
The Statue of Liberty may not be choosy about the wretched refuse she allows in the door, but Americans haven’t always been so hospitable. Immigrants from Ireland landed in the U.S. in the 1850s only to find shop windows festooned with signs reading “No Irish Need Apply.” The Chinese toiled to build our transcontinental railroad in the 1860s only to see the infamous Chinese Exclusion Act signed in 1882, suspending further immigration.
The research, conducted by Jeffrey Timberlake of the University of Cincinnati and Rhys Williams of Loyola University Chicago, was presented this week at the annual convention of the American Sociological Association, in San Francisco. In order to take America’s temperature on the often overheated topic of immigrants, the researchers went to an unlikely place: Ohio.
For all its purple-state, heartland rep, large portions of Ohio are still very monochrome - which is to say white - and mostly untouched by on-the-ground experience with people not born in the U.S. Local opinions about immigrants would thus presumably be shaped mostly by what people read or see on TV, combined with a general sense of America’s shared melting-pot history. “This makes Ohio ideal for understanding public attitudes … largely unaffected by actual immigrant levels,” the researchers wrote.More
