Americans less divided on approach to immigration, survey says – Figuring Faith – The Washington Post. Several poll and survey data have been released recently indicating public support for immigration reform. Today, in an opinion piece in the Washington Post, Robert P. Jones discusses new findings from the Public Religion Research Institute's June Religion & Politics Tracking Survey. The Survey's findings indicate that nearly 8 in 10 Americans say that immigration policy should be decided at the federal level, a principle that was recently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court against Arizona's immigration laws. In addition, 55% of Americans and 73% of minorities support the DREAM Act. In light of the recent immigration policy announcements by the Obama administration and the Supreme Court's decision regarding Arizona's immigration law, only time will tell how big an issue immigration will be in this year's election.
