Mass Media Representation of Immigration

Contact: OR

This survey is collecting data on the extent to which the media affects individual opinion on the immigration situation in the United States. In order to better understand the media's influence on immigration, this survey will provide data on how people feel about certain phrases and frames commonly used in the immigration debate. With an increasing spotlight on immigration at the America/Mexico border, it is crucial people understand the extent to which language in the media affects American perception on the issue.
