3/4 of Americans Support Expanding Immigrant Families’ Safety Net Access

Jan 20, 2022


In January 2022, PIF released a poll finding that 74% of Americans favor expanding safety net access for immigrant families excluded under a 1996 welfare law. This finding signals strong bipartisan support for legislation restoring safety net access: the Lifting Immigrant Families Through Benefits Access Restoration Act (LIFT the BAR Act, HR 5227), is sponsored by Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-Washington).
