Majority of Americans Oppose Trump’s Immigration Plans

A new Gallup poll shows that Americans overwhelmingly oppose Donald Trump’s immigration plans.

84% of Americans and 76% of Republicans favor “allowing immigrants living in the U.S. illegally the chance to become U.S. citizens if they meet certain requirements over a period of time.” 66% of Americans oppose “building a wall along the entire U.S.-Mexico border,” and the same number oppose “deporting all immigrants who are living in the U.S. illegally.”

The poll shows Republicans more likely to favor building a wall and deporting immigrants than other Americans, but Independents swing the poll, strongly opposing those measures.
