1* How important is it for Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform legislation this year?
2* The U.S. Senate has passed a comprehensive immigration reform plan 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. Do you favor or oppose this plan?
3* Should those who are now in this country illegally be granted legal status right away or should that come only after the border is secured?
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?
5* Should the House of Representatives pass the comprehensive immigration reform plan already approved by the Senate, or should it review that legislation piece by piece and approve only the parts it likes?
