As PRRI’s Robert P. Jones notes in his latest Atlantic article, there is no state in the country in which a majority prefers deportation as the solution for immigration reform. Here’s where residents from all 50 states stand on deportation.
The state with the highest support for deportation as a response to those living in the U.S. illegally is Wyoming, a state that also had the highest share of support for President Donald Trump (68 percent). But the number of Wyoming residents who prefer deportation is nowhere near a majority—fewer than one-third (32 percent) support the option. West Virginia (29 percent), Kentucky (26 percent), and Montana (26 percent) offer the next highest support.
