PRRI to Release New Survey on What Americans Want from Immigration Reform at Brookings Institution


WASHINGTON — On Tuesday, June 10, at 10:30 a.m. EDT, leading scholars will discuss the findings of a major new national survey exploring religion, values, political affiliation, and other factors that continue to influence Americans’ opinions on immigration policy ahead of the 2014 midterm elections.

The new survey, conducted by Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) in partnership with The Brookings Institution, is a call-back to the PRRI/Brookings 2013 survey, one of the largest surveys ever conducted on the issue of immigration. The survey’s accompanying report, What Americans Want From Immigration Reform in 2014, explores whether the lack of legislative action over the last year has dampened support among Americans for immigration reform, how views of religious groups and partisans have changed, how changes in public opinion might affect the prospect for immigration reform in Congress, and what impact the issue of immigration reform will have on the 2014 mid-term elections.

The PRRI/Brookings Religion, Values and Immigration Reform benchmark and call-back surveys offer a rare window into how individual Americans’ views on immigration have changed over time.
