Comment: Public Support for Legalization Grows




CNN reports that a second national poll indicates a robust support from the public for legalization of the undocumented population.




According to a Gallup survey released Monday, 44% of those surveyed say it's extremely important for the United States to develop a plan to deal with the large number of undocumented immigrants. Forty-three percent say the top priority should be beefing up border security to halt the flow of undocumented workers into the country… According to the CNN survey, 54% said the top priority for the government in dealing with the issue of illegal immigration should be developing a plan that would allow those with jobs to eventually become legal U.S. residents.




These polls show a significant shift from public focus on border security in 2011 to a focus on legalization and integration of the undocumented into the economy in 2014. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.
