National Survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters
Conducted December 8-9, 2013
By Rasmussen Reports

1* Millions of people entered the United States legally but stayed longer than their visas allowed. Should the federal government find these people and make them leave the country?

2* Is the U.S. government too aggressive or not aggressive enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally? Or is the number of deportations about right?

3* Should the government stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan?

4* 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?

5* How concerned are you that efforts to identify and deport illegal immigrants will also end up violating the civil rights of some U.S. citizens?
