A reason why America is awesome

From a Pew Research Poll:

Americans more likely to say growing diversity makes their country a better place to live

You may think that Trump’s campaign indicates otherwise, but a recent Fox News poll suggests that the 2016 elections have led Americans to think about immigration and decide that it’s a good thing:

What do you think should happen to the illegal immigrants who are currently working in the United States — do you favor deporting as many as possible or do you favor setting up a system for them to become legal residents?

Just 18% of likely voters favored deportation of illegal immigrants, with 74% favoring giving them a way to become legal. That’s about the same as the proportion of UK voters who support allowing legal immigrants to stay.
