Iowa Poll: Strong majority support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants

Iowans overwhelmingly support citizenship for undocumented immigrants — and not just the so-called Dreamers.

Sixty-five percent of respondents in the latest Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll call a pathway to citizenship for all undocumented workers currently living in the country “a worthy goal.”

The consensus is stronger when it comes to young people brought to the country illegally by their parents. Eighty-one percent of Iowans say eventually extending citizenship to “Dreamers” — the group until recently protected by the executive action known as DACA — is a worthy goal. CONT.
