"Americans are more likely to say that the nation's top immigration priority should be to allow those in the US illegally to gain legal status -- and six in 10 say they are more concerned that deportation efforts will be overzealous than they are that dangerous criminals will be overlooked.

All told, 60% say the government's top priority in dealing with illegal immigration should be developing a plan to allow those in the US illegally who have jobs to become legal residents.

In contrast, 26% say developing a plan to stop illegal border crossings should be the top priority and 13% say deportation of those in the US illegally should be the first priority."

By the way, are this the same people who polls said American's were in favor of Hilary over Trump?

"What's particularly striking is what's happened to public opinion in recent months:

The number who prioritize legal status for those working in the US illegally is up from 51% who said so last fall. That shift comes across party lines, with Democrats and independents each 10 points more likely and Republicans 8 points more likely to choose a plan for legal status now compared with last fall."

If so they were right then too, she got a lot more votes.

I don't believe the majority of Americans want a national program to give legal status for illegal aliens.

Likely true, but the issues surrounding it are thorny. A pragmatic solution will chafe, unfortunately.

I do believe that a majority would like to see a path to legal status for those who have been here long term, work, are not criminals.

The popularity of Obamacare has increased too. It seems Trump is successful.....in making anti-Trump legislation more popular.
