Commonsense Immigration Reform Poll Shows Majority of Registered Voters Support Path to Citizenship

A majority of U.S. voters favor common sense immirgration reform that includes a path to citizenship for current undocumented immigrants and strong accountability measures according to a new bipartisan survey released earlier this week. The Service Employee International Union (SEIU) along with allies America’s Voice Education Fund, and National Immigration Forum comissioned the bipartisan, national poll of 1,003 registered voters that was conducted by Public Opinion Strategies (a Republican polling firm) and Hart Research Associates (a Democratic firm).

Almost four out of five voters said they support a system that requires immigrants to pay taxes, hold employers accountable for hiring legal workers and prevents them from exploiting immigrant labor, improves border secruity and ensures that undocumented immigrants have a chance to work towards citizenship. Support for citizenship was strong across party lines, with 83% of Republicans, 91% of Democrats, and 82% of Independents choosing full integration.
