We asked four questions about immigration. Here are the unscientific results based on about 2,000 online responses:
1) Should Congress approve the president’s request for $3.7 billion in emergency funding?
Yes, 50%; no, 25%; Congress should scale it back, 25%.
2) Should more walls be built and National Guard troops added along the U.S.-Mexico border?
Yes, 70%; no, 30%.
3) Should the young immigrants be returned to their home countries sooner rather than later? Or should the U.S. heed Pope Francis’ call to welcome and shelter the refugees?
Send them home ASAP, 42%; let the legal process work but speed it up, 32%; find a way to keep the children here, 26%.
4) Should Congress pass as soon as possible a comprehensive immigration reform bill, including a pathway to citizenship for 11 million long-term, undocumented residents?
Yes, Congress should act this year, 68%; no, wait till later, 4%; no, bill should not include a pathway to citizenship, 28%.
