ABSTRACT
The article presents the results of public opinion polls on political issues in the U.S. Democrats and Republicans actually agree that illegal immigration is a serious problem. Among all respondents, the most popular method for dealing with illegal immigrants was increasing the number of federal agents who patrol the borders, followed by fining employers who hire illegal workers. Meanwhile, legislators' approval ratings have slipped in the latest Associated Press/Ipsos Public Affairs poll.
