PHOENIX -- Many Americans who support Arizona's immigration law are also open to a creating a path to U.S. citizenship, according to a recent survey.

The Pew Hispanic Center report said 58 percent of American adults approve the 2010 immigration law, on which the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling Monday.

However, the survey found 42 percent of adults want an equal balance of tough immigration enforcement and access to citizenship for the country's approximately 11 million illegal immigrants.

About 75 percent of Hispanics surveyed said they disapprove of the Arizona statute. The survey said 35 percent of Hispanics want a path to citizenship and border restrictions to be given equal weight.

The Pew Hispanic Center is part of the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan, nonadvocacy research organization based in Washington, D.C.
