Most Republicans and Democrats agree: Immigrants make the U.S. a better place to live

Louis DeSipio, a political science professor at UC Irvine, agreed, asserting that
Republicans’ response to immigrants represented a “snap back” from the party’s 1994
stance. “It really reflects a change among conservatives in California,” he said,
adding that the results were “a pretty striking finding.” DeSipio was also surprised
by the response from California voters who identified as having no party preference
-- 83% of voters in that group said immigrants make the U.S. a better place.
