11. Alright, thinking about national policy, which comes closest to your view about what government policy should be toward illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States? Should the government:
Make all illegal immigrants felons and send them back to their home country;
Have a guest worker program that allows immigrants to remain in the United States in order to work, but only for a limited amount of time, or;
Allow illegal immigrants to remain in the United States and eventually qualify for U.S. citizenship, but only if they meet certain requirements like paying back taxes and fines, learning English, and pass background check
