Wyoming Citizens Divided on Immigration Reform

By Associated Press – 26 Nov ’14

A University of Wyoming poll shows that Wyoming residents are deeply divided on how to deal with immigrants living illegally in the United States.

The survey found that 37 percent of respondents favor deporting them back to their home countries. On the other hand, 39 percent would allow them to remain in the United States to work, but for a limited time.

About one-quarter favor providing them with a path to citizenship.

The statewide telephone survey of 768 Wyoming residents was conducted in October by UW’s Survey Research Center. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.
