Poll: Most Back Citizenship For Illegals

More than half of all Americans support a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, according to a poll released Wednesday, giving further ammunition to those pressing for comprehensive immigration reform. According to the survey, from The Washington Post and ABC News, 57 percent of Americans say that undocumented workers should be given a path to legal status. Among Hispanics, support jumps to 82 percent — particularly notable after the group accounted for 10 percent of voters in last week's presidential election, the first time the demographic has broken double digits within the national electorate. More than seven in 10 Democrats supported a path to citizenship, and 69 percent of young adults say the same. A majority of non-Hispanic whites, 51 percent, also back the measure/Justin Sink, The Hill. More here.

Question: Do you support a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants?
