Religious leaders, faithful differ on immigration policy, poll shows

December 29, 2009

A new Zogby poll shows a large gap between the views of American religious leaders and their followers on questions of immigration policy. The poll found the “man in the pew” is less likely to favor increased immigration, and substantially more likely to call for stricter enforcement of existing immigration laws.

Among lay Catholics, 78% said that inadequate enforcement, rather than strict quotas, was the main cause of illegal immigration. According to 69% of the Catholics surveyed, immigration is now too high; only 4% thought it was too low, while 14% were happy with the current level.
