National Survey of Voter Attitudes on Immigration Reform
The National Immigration Forum is reporting that an overwhelming majority (71%) of likely voters (including 60% or more of every major demographic group) support immigration reform that stipulates the following:
- Immigrants could come to work for three years and in the fourth year, while continuing to work, they would be eligible to apply for citizenship.
- Immigrants could bring their immediate families and their families could work.
- These immigrants and their families would be eligible for only emergency medical care and education, but once they become citizens they would be eligible for all services available to any American citizen.
- Immigrants could earn the right to citizenship by working, paying taxes, and learning English.
