ABSTRACT

Stimulus for All Americans: Voters Support Including All Americans in Stimulus, Regardless of Immigration Status   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "[1] An overall majority of Americans support extending a number of benefits to immigrants regardless of immigration status--including the extension of free health treatment, monthly stimulus payments to taxpayers, the auto-renewal of visas to all immigrant essential workers and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients --as a means of mitigating the severity and duration of the coronavirus pandemic. [2] Given visa renewal offices are closed, automatically renewing visas and immigration benefits for essential workers in particular--nurses, doctors, agricultural workers and transportation for the duration of the state of emergency in the U.S.--is very popular, with 71 percent support overall. Support for this proposal was 59 percent among Republicans--a leap of nearly 20 percentage points above Republican support for each of the other proposals surveyed. [3] The American public believes including everyone in the United States in recovery efforts is best for public health and the economy."
