A new survey says 71 percent of Americans favor giving undocumented immigrants legal status. The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press also found that there’s still a divide when it comes to granting citizenship.
Only 43 percent said undocumented immigrants who would qualify should be allowed to apply for citizenship.
While that might be uncomfortable news, the survey found that 49 percent of Americans have positive attitudes about immigrants and say they strengthen the country because of their hard work and talents.
More Americans (52 percent ) also think the growing numbers of newcomers in the United States make our society stronger.
