Immigration issues have gripped the nation and Oregon. This month’s survey, conducted by Conkling Fiskum & McCormick, shows a difference between Oregon businesspeople and adults nationwide on one of the biggest questions: what to do with the 11 million undocumented immigrants already here. An April Washington Post/ABS News poll found that 63% of adults think there should be a path to citizenship, while 42% of the 718 Input respondents think so. Even though 45% of the Input respondents think immigrants are a burden, Jack Corbett, a Portland State University associate professor who specializes in immigration issues, sees 80% favoring either citizenship or a guest-worker program as showing “a lot of people feel the issue has been settled. It makes more sense to deal with the people who are here than it does to start over again.” He also notes the ambivalence in 85% saying proof of citizenship should be necessary to get public assistance versus 53% supporting harsh penalties for employing undocumented domestic help.
