Funniest Register Poll of the Year...

...has to be the one they ran last week asking readers what "is the most effective way to stop illegal immigration across the U.S.-Mexico border?"

Reporter Amy Taxin sure knows her audience--of the options available, none included "open the borders ala the European Union," "reform the current immigration system to encourage more legal migration" or "turn over the southwest United States already." About the closest opinion to such immigrant-friendly options was "there is no effective way to stop migration," a rather bleak assessment that only about 10 percent of Register voters agreed with. Way to be optimistic, cabrones!
