REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – More immigrants are more concerned about other immigrants not getting deported than them getting naturalized in America. This is according to two new surveys from the Pew Research Center.

By a margin of 49 to 44 percent, Asian Americans say addressing the threat of deportation is more important than creating a pathway to citizenship for those immigrants.

But a majority of Asian Americans, 72 percent, still express support for providing long term immigration relief to more than 11 million undocumented immigrants in America.

Advocates have been pushing President Barack Obama to halt deportations while immigration reform is being discussed in congress.

Obama’s administration deports an average of 400,000 immigrants every year.
