New immigration survey out from PRRI/Brookings

Full results here: http://publicreligion.org/research/2013/03/2013-religion-values-immigration-survey/

Some highlights:

  • “More than 7-in-10 (71%) Democrats, nearly two-thirds (64%) of independents, and a majority (53%) of Republicans favor an earned path to citizenship.”
  • “Majorities of all religious groups, including Hispanic Catholics (74%), Hispanic Protestants (71%), black Protestants (70%), Jewish Americans (67%), Mormons (63%), white Catholics (62%), white mainline Protestants (61%), and white evangelical Protestants (56%) agree that the immigration system should allow immigrants currently living in the U.S. illegally to become citizens provided they meet certain requirements.”

The nationally-representative sample of more than 4,500 respondents makes this an especially useful survey.
