Seattle Residents Oppose AZ Immigration Law, But…

…unlike the City Council, which passed a Resolution to boycott Arizona on Monday, a majority feel that the state shouldn’t be boycotted.

Here are the results of the SurveyUSA poll of 600 adults:

  • 74% are familiar with the new law, 25% are not.
  • Out of the 74% (442 adults) who are familiar with the law, 41% support it, while 55% oppose it.
  • When asked if the city of Seattle should “officially support Arizona’s new immigration law? Officially oppose the law? Or take no official stance either way,” 31% say support, 45% say oppose, and 24% say the city should take no official stance.
  • Finally, when asked if Seattle should continue to do business with companies in Arizona, or if it should boycott the state out of protest, 60% said “do business,” while only 34% said “boycott.”

Maybe there’s hope for Seattleites yet. Maybe.

    I applaud Arizona…only State in the Union willing to uphold the exact same laws that are on the Federal books.

    I hope that every American, regardless of where he lives, will stop and examine his conscience about this and other related incidents. This Nation was founded by men of many nations and backgrounds. It was founded on the principle that all men are created equal, and that the rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened. All of us ought to have the right to be treated as he would wish to be treated, as one would wish his children to be treated, but this is not the case.

    I know the proponents of this law say that the majority approves of this law, but the majority is not always right. Would women or non-whites have the vote if we listen to the majority of the day, would the non-whites have equal rights (and equal access to churches, housing, restaurants, hotels, retail stores, schools, colleges and yes water fountains) if we listen to the majority of the day? We all know the answer, a resounding, NO!

    Today we are committed to a worldwide struggle to promote and protect the rights of all who wish to be free. In a time of domestic crisis men of good will and generosity should be able to unite regardless of party or politics and do what is right, not what is just popular with the majority. Some men comprehend discrimination by never have experiencing it in their lives, but the majority will only understand after it happens to them.

      Aaahhh Benito, I see you are shilling your progressive nonsense on more than just one conservative blog…

      Here’s the answer for you Benito: what part of ILLEGAL do you not understand? As Eowyn told you: The United States does not discriminate against women and non-whites who are legal residents. The United States does have a problem with those — of whatever color and whatever gender — who have violated our laws and are here ILLEGALLY. Get your facts straight.

    This is not discrimination, it’s common sense. What does that say about a person when the very first thing they do by coming here is break the law by crossing over that border illegally?
    People who come to this country the right way and go through the hoops that come with that are the people we want here. Immigration laws need to be changed but to condone breaking the law is unbelievable. The very first act of entering this country is a broken law??? Think about that. That is a slap in the face to the citizens of this country and the immigrants who took the time and effort to come here legally.
