A new poll conducted for groups that support immigration reform finds 90 percent of Iowans want congress to take action on the issue sooner rather than later. Iowa Chamber Alliance executive director John Stineman says two-thirds of the Iowans surveyed favor granting some sort of legal status to undocumented immigrants.


Stineman says the poll also found voters do not consider the current state of border security and the recent flood of unaccompanied children walking into the U.S. to be valid reasons to delay “comprehensive” immigration reform.


According to the survey, 60 percent of Republicans have that viewpoint. A coalition of groups is hosting events in 25 states to urge Congress to take action on immigration reform.
