More Immigration Polling Data

Adding to a post Aaron had a few days ago, a new USA Today/Gallup Poll shows even more support for comprehensive immigration reform:

A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken last weekend found that 78% of respondents feel people now in the country illegally should be given a chance at citizenship.

Assessing the poll results, Senator Edward Kennedy had a blunt, but honest reaction:

"As with so many issues, the American people are ahead of Washington on immigration reform. They know that only a plan that offers a path to earned citizenship will fix our broken system."

Check out video of Senator Kennedy and others on the need for comprehensive immigration reform at an NDN event in March.
