National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted December 9-10, 2010

By Rasmussen Reports

 

 

1* If adults enter the United States illegally, should they be considered as lawbreakers?

 

2* Okay… if young people are brought here illegally by their parents, should they be considered as lawbreakers?

 

3* Fine… Suppose a young person brought to the United States illegally by their parents grows up in this country, obeys the law, and has done well in school. Should that person be given the right to remain legally in the United States?

 

4* Suppose that young people brought here illegally by their parents are given the right to remain legally in the United States. Should the parents who brought them here illegally be allowed to remain in the United States as well?

 

5* In terms of immigration legislation, which is more important - gaining control of the border or legalizing the status of undocumented workers already living in the United States?
