Comment: An Immigration Poll
A recent poll by the Hoover Institution shows that there is a broad support for immigration among general public and "experts" alike. The poll found that 72% of respondents believed that immigration is a good thing with only 25% thinking of it negatively. 84% of experts from various research institutions agree with the general public on virtues of immigration.

"The results of the survey show a much deeper level of consensus on immigration reform than one might expect given the acrimony on editorial pages and cable television programs. Thirty-two (or 84%) of our experts think immigration is a good thing for the United States, and 30 of 38 think the level of legal immigration should be increased. Although the responses differ slightly from the public, the questions are identical to a recurring Gallup poll."
