National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted January 31-February 1, 2014
By Rasmussen Reports
1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about immigration reform efforts in Congress?
2* How important is it for Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform legislation this year?
3* A comprehensive immigration reform plan has been proposed that would secure the border and prevent future illegal immigration. As part of the plan, those who entered the country illegally but have otherwise obeyed the law would be given legal status to stay in the United States. If you knew that the border would really be secured to prevent future illegal immigration, would you favor or oppose this plan?
4* If a law is passed to secure the border, prevent future illegal immigration and allow those who entered the country illegally to stay, how likely is it that the federal government will actually secure the border and prevent illegal immigration – very likely, somewhat likely, not very likely or not at all likely?
5* If a child is brought illegally into the United States and later earns a college degree or serves honorably in the military, should that child be given a chance to obtain citizenship in the United States?
