Roughly 65% of the U.S. adults think that immigrants who are currently living illegally in the country should be allowed to remain here and eventually become citizens, as long as they meet some requirements. These conclusions come from Gallup’s Minority Rights and Relations poll, which also revealed that 14% of the respondents would not allow illegal incomers to remain in the country to work for a limited time, and only 19% feel that immigrants should be deported.
Answers varied based on the respondents’ political affinity. Democrats are willing to endorse the path to citizenship, and 80% of them said that immigrants should be allowed to remain in the U.S. As for Republicans, opinions are equally divided. 50% of them support immigrants to live and work in the U.S., and ultimately become citizens.
What’s perhaps more important than the numbers is the fact that U.S. citizens are now a lot more open to immigration and considerably more supportive towards foreigners than a few years ago.
