As Arizona officials are moving forward with legislation to deny U.S. birch certificates to children born here to parents who are illegal immigrants, a new Rasmussen Reports survey finds that 64 percent of the state's residents support the proposal.

"In Arizona, there’s virtually no difference of opinion between men and women on this question. Seventy-one percent (71%) of Arizona voters who do not have children living with them oppose automatic citizenship for those born to illegal immigrants. Voters with children in the home are more narrowly divided," Rasmussen said.

"Eighty-four percent (84%) of Republicans and 58% of voters not affiliated with either major party say children born to illegal immigrants in this country should not automatically become U.S. citizens. Democratic voters are almost evenly divided on the question."

The 64 percent figure for Arizona compares to 58 percent nationally who believe a child born here to illegal immigrants sould not automatically become U.S. citizens.
