Majority Support for Most Immigration Reforms

A new Gallup poll finds "at least two-thirds of Americans favor each of five specific measures designed to address immigration issues -- ranging from 68% who would vote for increased government spending on security measures and enforcement at U.S. borders, to 85% who would vote for a requirement that employers verify the immigration status of all new hires. More than seven in 10 would vote for a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants now living in this country."

Meanwhile, a new ABC News-Washington Post poll finds public approval of President Obama's handling of immigration has jumped to a career high "buttressed by majority support for a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and, much more broadly, endorsement of stricter border control."
