Few Say Religion Shapes Views on Immigration

A 2010 poll by the Pew Research Center found that few Americans include religion as an important factor for how they think about issues of immigration. The study noted the following statistics:

  • Only 24 percent of regular churchgoers said that their clergy have addressed the issue of immigration.
  • 42 percent of the Americans surveyed said that immigrants strengthen America with their hard work and talent; 45 percent said that immigrants are more of a burden to America.
