Yet Another Poll Shows Broad Support For Arizona’s New Immigration Law

Face it Lefties, you’re on the wrong side on this one. Yet another poll shows broad support for Gov. Jan Brewer’s new immigration law in Arizona. This one from Pew Research:

Broad Approval For New Arizona Immigration Law

The public broadly supports a new Arizona law aimed at dealing with illegal immigration and the law’s provisions giving police increased powers to stop and detain people who are suspected of being in the country illegally.

Fully 73% say they approve of requiring people to produce documents verifying their legal status if police ask for them. Two-thirds (67%) approve of allowing police to detain anyone who cannot verify their legal status, while 62% approve of allowing police to question people they think may be in the country illegally.

After being asked about the law’s provisions, 59% say that, considering everything, they approve of Arizona’s new illegal immigration law while 32% disapprove.

Here’s the partisan breakdown:

Brewer-mentum!

      Well…they are clueless if they don’t agree with a federal law that has been enacted since 1940. And what is so “progressive” about evading federal law? Been to a another country without proper docs? Dare you to try and get into Mexico without proper docs…and then try and return to USA. Let me know how that works for ya…

      Bill, those two words aren’t mutually exclusive.

      I kid, I kid.
