Arizona Immigration Law: Poll Finds Broad Support

Nearly six in 10 Americans support Arizona's new law aimed at cracking down on illegal immigrants, according to a Pew Research Center poll conducted May 6-9.

Eighty-two percent of Republicans support the law as do 64 percent of independents. By contrast, 45 percent of Democrats approve of it.

Asked about specific elements of the law, 73 percent support requiring people to produce documents verifying their legal status, 67 percent say police should be able to detain anyone unable to verify their legal status and 62 percent say police should be allowed to question anyone they think may be in the country illegally.

The broadest support is for the requirement that people produce documents verifying their legal status. Eighty-six percent of Republicans, 65 percent of Democrats and 73 percent of independents back that provision. But Democratic backing for allowing police to question people who they have reason to believe are here illegally and then detain them is much lower than that of Republicans and independents.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.

Dear Bruce,

Thanks for your work. I agree 100% that it should be OK to check anyone's papers for lawful activity, just like the cops can pull you over and ask for a license.

The reality, of course is that after the 14th Amendment was put in place US gov't can 'sell' any US citizen as a corporation in order to make good on the June 5th bankruptcy (ch 11) as declared by FDR. With an average US citizen being worth ~600,000 USD it is a good deal to grant citizenship to anyone hopping the fence and give birth.

The fix to this problem must go far deeper and start with abolishing the 1913 Federals reserve Act, that put private bankers in place with the intent to control all US (and world) money, bankrupt US and hold us forever hostage and indebted to them.

Please use your forum to expand on this topic and expose the deeper thruths.

Thank you,

Anders jacobson
