AMNESTY WILL GET THAT OVER 50%:

Undocumented Immigrants Closely Tied to U.S., Poll Says (REBEKAH METZLER, April 15, 2013, US News)

According to the survey by Latino Decisions, 85 percent of undocumented immigrants have family members who are U.S. citizens, including 62 percent who have at least one U.S.-born child. About 95 percent of undocumented have at least one other family member, of any status, living in the U.S. [...]

More than three-quarters of those surveyed said they came to the United States in search of better economic opportunity or to create a better life, the poll says. Just 12 percent said they came to the U.S. to reunite with family members.

The poll also revealed the deep ties many of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants have in the U.S. - 68 percent of the respondents said they have been living in the country for more than a decade, 71 percent living in homes that own cars and 15 percent said they are homeowners.
