    More than 60 percent of registered Hispanic voters do not think a pathway to citizenship for illegals would benefit the country, and most do not see it as the best way to solve the country’s immigration problems, a new poll shows.

    Of the 62 percent who felt a pathway to citizenship for illegals would not benefit the country, 33 percent felt it would hurt the economy, 7 percent felt it would overly burden public schools and 10 percent felt it would create public safety issues, the McKeon and Associates Wednesday poll found.

    Only 38 percent said a pathway to citizenship would benefit the country, and 55 percent said it is not the best way to solve the illegal immigration problem.

    “The overall population may have other opinions, but these are the people who are actually going to vote,” Michael Mckeon told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

    Asked which plan they would support to help solve the problem, 26 percent said “no immigration until the border secure,” and 29 percent said illegals should be allowed to stay and work, but should not be granted a pathway to citizenship. One percent did not respond.
