Poll Finds 75% Support ‘Controversial’ AZ Immigration Law

I guess it’s not so controversial after all.

A new CNN poll finds 75% of Americans support the controversial Arizona immigration law that allows law enforcement officials to question a suspect’s immigration status after they have already been detained for another reason.

When the law was passed in 2010, it led to a firestorm of controversy in the national debate over illegal immigration. Opponents feared that police would use the law to harass and racially profile Hispanics, while supporters claimed that the federal government doesn’t do enough to fight illegal immigration and the state was simply trying to fill that void.
