During the survey, the question was posed as follows: "Do you think immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally and meet the requirements should: 'not be allowed to stay in the country legally', 'be a way for those who meet certain requirements to be able to apply for U.S. citizenship, or permanent residency, but not U.S. citizenship'."
