Poll: 63% Disapprove of Work Permits for Illegals

More than six in ten Americans do not want President Barack Obama to grant work permits to illegal immigrants. 

When an Investors Business Daily/TIPP poll, which was conducted August 23-28, asked Americans about a potential executive action to “slow deportation of undocumented immigrants by providing them with legal protection and work permits,” 63% opposed while only 34% approved.  

The poll also found that 73% of Americans, including 78% of independents, 54% of Democrats, and 80% of young people, would rather have Obama work with Congress instead of going it alone. 

The White House had indicated that Obama is on the verge of granting work permits to nearly five million illegal immigrants via executive action.
