More than three-quarters of Americans believe immigrants are “no more to blame for crime than other groups,” a Pew Research Center poll showed. 

The survey, released Thursday, found 77 percent of U.S. respondents said they more strongly agree with the statement immigrants are “no more to blame for crime than other groups” than the statement immigrants “are more to blame for crime than other groups.” 

Nineteen percent preferred the statement that said immigrants are more to blame. 

Of the 18 countries surveyed, U.S. respondents had the second highest belief immigrants are no more to blame, trailing only Canada, where 80 percent of respondents believe immigrants are no more to blame.

U.S. respondents were split over whether illegal immigrants should be deported, with 46 percent saying they support deportation and 47 percent opposed.

In other findings, the survey found:

  • 59 percent of Americans say immigrants make the country stronger; 34 percent say they are a burden.

  • 54 percent of U.S. respondents said immigrants adopt the customs and way of life in America; 37 percent think immigrants want to be distinct from the the rest of the nation.

The poll’s margin of error for U.S. responses was plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
