More than half of US citizens believe that “most or all of” America’s 11 million illegal immigrants should immediately be deported back to their home countries, with only 5 percent of Americans believing they should stay.

Despite lawmakers’ extensive efforts to reform the US immigration system, the online survey conducted by Reuters and Ipsos sheds a new light on the extent of American opposition to giving illegal immigrants a path to citizenship.

Thirty percent of responders said that most illegal immigrants should be deported, while 23 percent said that all illegal immigrants should be deported. Among those who consider themselves Republicans, 75 percent think all or most immigrants should be deported. And a surprisingly low number of Americans believe all illegal immigrants should have a path to citizenship: five percent of responders support such an option, while the remaining 31 percent believe most illegal immigrants should have this opportunity.

The high number of Americans who want illegal immigrants deported may be surprising, but Ipsos pollster Julia Clark told Reuters that the views have not recently changed, but the topic has simply come into the forefront of political discussion.

“It’s not Americans’ views that are shifting. It is that the political climate is ripe for this discussion,” she said.

“Democrats feel that the time is right to capitalize on their wins and Republicans feel that they had a bad blow and are eager to reach out to Hispanics,” she added, referring to the November election in which the overwhelming majority of Hispanic Americans voted for President Barack Obama.

Other polls show that most Americans are supportive of immigration reform. But while some advocate for a path to citizenship, others campaign for tighter border security to altogether prevent illegal immigration.

The Reuters poll takes a new look at an ongoing issue at a time when senators have proposed a full path to citizenship for illegal immigrants who pay the taxes they avoided, as well as a fine. The bipartisan bill, which is the first major attempt at immigration reform since 2007, would boost border security as well as allow illegals to apply for US citizenship.

President Obama is also working on a bill that would allow undocumented immigrants to become citizens in eight years. But Republicans have expressed stark opposition to the White House initiative, calling it a reward for those who violated US law.

As policymakers continue to debate on how to tackle the issue of illegal immigration, the attitude toward immigration reflects the divisions between  Americans on a matter that increasingly carries more weight in politics as Hispanic-Americans progressively affect the outcomes of elections.

RW - Happily for Congress the majority of what the American people want is of no concern. If anything this will only give them an incentive to deputize more voters for 'change'.

But according to the latest Gallup poll 99% of Americans believe "undocumented aliens" should be welcomed and they would even be more than happy to give them their jobs and houses to make them feel welcome.

Most Americans believe illegal immigrants should be deported

Conservatives are nudged into opposition to "illegals" while zero attention given to absurd scheme of legal immigration that favors various 3rd World folks.  A conservative friend hates amnesty for illegals but assumes legal immigrants are A-OK; he buys into corporate lies about shortage of skilled workers.

Ding!

There's a whole industry built up around expedited passports and work visas for these folks, especially in the medical and tech fields. That's why you see so many Flip, Paki, and Indonesian nurses nowadays...

We don't call them illegal immigrants in America. They're uninvited guests. :)

A very good point. European immigrants were cut off from the legal process three or four decades ago.

Well, they put up a big advertising sign that says, "Send us the wretched refuse from your teeming shores"!  And there's a few billion more where they came from.

This is and has been done intentionally. The goal is race mixing! The PTB is deliberately destroying races, until there is not much social cohesion left.

They want to destroy their #1 enemy, which is the white race / family unit / white. We are already in a race war and we are losing.

You pay a jew lawyer his fee, you jump to the front of the line at the immigration office.  Very greasy legal system.

In DC area very few Euros even with the diplomatic contingent.  I suppose in NYC there's a handful that work in Wall St.  Anyway most of the Euros are working on a semi-temporary basis & not seeking citizenship.  AFAIK Euros seeking US citizenship rely on an immigration lottery which is very limited.

Used to watch the Saturday morning Indian tv shows on cable-access channel, main advertisers were always fat Jew immigration lawyers.  The other afternoon I was walking around delivering the community newsletter, freezing & windy, almost no one out so I took along the 2 dogs I was pet-sitting for a friend.  Passed by a Greek mofo walking his dog & he starts giving me the 3rd degree about having the dogs off leash, even brandishes a taser & menacingly tests it with a loud snap.  He's practically the richest guy in the neighborhood, turns out he runs the local Greek diner (where half the customers are cops).  Damn foreigners are completely ungrateful & hostile & bitch about the slightest things.  I've gotten crap from the Koreans, Poles, Greeks, Italians etc.  OTOH the few Jews are pretty friendly, the IndoPaks & Africans mind their own business.
