New Poll: Bipartisan Support for Immigration Reform

A majority of American voters favor immigration reform that includes a path to earned citizenship for current undocumented immigrants, and strong accountability measures, according to a bipartisan poll by Public Opinion Strategies, a Republican polling firm, and Hart Research Associates, a Democratic firm. The national survey of 1,003 registered voters showed voters wanting a long-term fix for the immigration system that includes a path to full citizenship for immigrants here without papers. Almost four out of five voters said they support a system that requires immigrants to pay taxes, holds employers accountable for hiring legal workers and prevents them from exploiting immigrant labor, improves border security, and ensures that undocumented immigrants have a chance to work towards citizenship. The plan is broadly favored across partisan, ideological, regional and ethnic groups.  More information is available here.
