About This Report
This report explores Hispanics’ and Asian Americans’ views of
new immigration legislation being considered in Congress. It also explores the attitudes and opinions of each group about the Republican Party, the Democratic Party and President Obama and examines their views of and experiences with the U.S. immigration system. The report is based on two nationally representative surveys fielded in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The first is a bilingual telephone survey of 701 Hispanic adults conducted from Oct. 16 to Nov. 3, 2013. The margin of error for the full Hispanic survey sample is plus or minus 4.4 percentage points at the 95% confidence level. Interviews were conducted for the Pew Research Center by Social Science Research Solutions (SSRS). The second is a multilingual survey of 802 Asian-American adults conducted Oct. 16-31, 2013. The margin of error for the Asian- American survey is plus or minus 5.0 percentage points at the 95% confidence level. Interviews  were conducted for the Pew Research Center by Abt SRBI. For details on each survey, see  Appendix A. Data on the demographic characteristics of
each group come from the U.S. Census Bureau’s
Current Population Survey. This report was written by Mark Hugo Lopez, Paul Taylor, Cary Funk and Ana Gonzalez-Barrera. The authors thank Jon Cohen and Jeffrey Passel for editorial guidance. Anna Brown provided research assistance. Eileen Patten and Gretchen Livingston number-checked the report. Marcia Kramer was the copy editor. Find related reports
