Poll: Americans Support Legal Status for Those Who Came to US Illegally as Children

Comment by V. Lance Tarrance, TLC Chief Strategist and Pollster

On June 18th, the Supreme Court granted permanent legal status to immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children.

This particular political and humanitarian issue, which has been a political football between the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch, has now been decided by the Supreme Court in favor of DACA but by a close 5 to 4 decision.

However, in a recent PEW study conducted a few days before the Supreme Court decision, the public was in favor of a DACA law by 74%, or 3 out of every 4 Americans. About 90% of Hispanics also favored granting legal status to immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children.

Estimates are that this favorable Supreme Court decision will affect about 650,000 immigrants with protection from deportation. There could be a second step of permanent legal status for all law-abiding undocumented illegals on the football playing fields of the near future.
