A new poll from CBS News is showing that immigration reform is an overwhelmingly popular idea and that the public strongly supports a pathway to citizenship. From CBSNews.com:

Americans now appear ready for a new approach to immigration policy. A CBS News survey last month found that three-quarters of the public favors “a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants in the U.S. if they met certain requirements including a waiting period, paying fines and back taxes, passing criminal background checks, and learning English.”
