Poll: Most Support Strengthening Borders Before Other Immigration Reforms
Large majorities of American voters favor strengthening border security to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the country, and creating a path to citizenship for those already here.
A Fox News national poll released Monday finds 84 percent of voters favor stricter border security, while fewer than one in seven oppose it (13 percent).
Support is also strong for creating a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants, as long as they meet certain requirements such as paying back taxes, learning English and passing a background check. Some 72 percent of voters favor that, while 25 percent are opposed.
