Only about one-fifth of the people surveyed wanted to increase harsh immigration enforcement strategies such as deportations. Even fewer numbers of people liked the idea of allowing undocumented people to gain green cards, but not full citizenship.
More people said they felt that the U.S. immigration system is "completely broken" in response to this survey, conducted in November, than they did in March of this year.
Survey respondents continued to be divided on the question of increased border security and fence construction, with about half in favor and slightly less than half opposed.
