Majority of New Jerseyans Support Obama's Immigration Executive Order

Majority of New Jerseyans Support Obama's Immigration Executive Order

SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

A majority of New Jersey residents (53 percent) supports President Barack Obama’s executive order sparing millions of undocumented immigrants from risk of immediate deportation by refocusing enforcement efforts on “felons, not families,” according to results of a Rutgers-Eagleton Poll released today. Forty-two percent oppose the action, and 6 percent are unsure.

Obama’s Nov. 20 announcement also provides an opportunity to apply for three years of relief from deportation and work permits, available to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. before 2010 and were under 16 years old or have at least one child who is a U.S. citizen or legal resident. Those who will be able to avoid deportation are mostly parents and young people.

While a plurality of 43 percent says Obama went too far in bypassing Congress with his executive order, more residents think either he did not go far enough (23 percent) or did about right (25 percent).
