The majority of Americans in a new poll think people who have benefitted from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program should be allowed to stay in the United States.

Results from the Politico/Morning Consult poll:

  • 58 percent said they believe DACA recipients, also called Dreamers, should be allowed to stay and become citizens if they meet certain requirements.
  • 68 percent said DACA recipients should be granted work permits.
  • Regarding illegal immigrants as a whole, 49 percent said those currently living in the U.S. illegally should be allowed to stay and given a pathway to citizenship.
  • 22 percent said illegal immigrants should be removed or deported.

The Trump administration announced Tuesday that DACA will end in six months, which will give lawmakers on Capitol Hill time to write and pass legislation that would be a more permanent solution.

DACA allowed people who illegally came to the U.S. as children with their parents to stay if they met certain conditions.
