Americans far more friendly towards immigrants than Trump

Think Progress - A majority of Americans in every state do not support mass deportation, according to a survey conducted by the nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute, cutting against President Donald Trump’s executive orders on immigration authorizing the expulsion of undocumented immigrants.

The poll  found only one in ten young adults between the ages of 18 and 29 and one in nine seniors over the age of 65 support an immigration system to “identify and deport” undocumented immigrants. White Americans were twice as likely, at 20 percent, to support mass deportation than other racial groups. Along the political divide, deportation was more supported by Republicans (28 percent) than by Democrats (8 percent).
