NBC Poll: Nearly two-thirds back AZ law Are you surprised?

Nearly two-thirds of Americans back Arizona's new anti-illegal immigration law, which makes it a state crime for a person to be in the country illegally. The law also requires local and state law enforcement officials to question people about their immigration status if they suspect they’re in the country illegally.


Complain all you want, you are in the minority.

  • I'm Hispanic and think this law is a good idea. I am going to Arizona next month on vacation, and feel completely comfortable with the law.

    I think in two or three months this will all blow over when people finally accept that the state is merely following FEDERAL LAW, and accept the fact that not all law enforcement officers are racist pigs.

    People are making too much of it.

  • I'm surprised NBC published the poll. The numbers, not so much.

  • While I agree with the idea and intention of this law, I am reserving judgement until August when it actually takes effect to see if it holds up to its ideals or becomes a racist free-for-all.

  • 2/3, yes I believe it. Same folks who will be up in arms when it does not provide the desired, immediate results.
