A Path to Citizenship: Majority Support, Economic Sense

A Path to Citizenship: Majority Support, Economic Sense

"Nearly seven in 10 voters support an eventual pathway to citizenship for people living in the country illegally, according to a new poll.  According to a Fox News poll released Wednesday night, support for sending people living in the United States illegally back to their home country is at its lowest level since 2011, with 15 percent support." - The Hill, Jan. 23, 2014.

"The evidence is clear: A pathway to citizenship free of obstacles and undue delays helps immigrants integrate into the labor market and increase their earnings.  These increased earnings and the corresponding added tax revenue would help grow the economy, which yields benefits for native-born citizens too." - Pieter Bevelander and Don J. DeVoretz , Jan. 27, 2014.
