81 percent support amnesty for undocumented immigrants


Here's a statistic that's guaranteed to get anti-immigrant groups seeing majorly red: A CNN poll found the 81 percent of those questioned support a program that would allow undocumented workers who have already been living in the country for a number of years to remain legally if they had a job and paid taxes.

The same poll found that 78 percent of white respondents favor the program, which is 16 points lower than the 94 percent of Latinos questioned who back the plan.
