Poll: More Americans Want Arizona-Style Anti-Illegal Immigration Law for Their State

Michael Sheridan, New York Daily News, June 1, 2010

The Arizona anti-immigration law has been beset by boycotts and demonstrations, yet a new poll suggests more Americans may want one just like it for their state.

According to a new Quinnipiac University poll, 48% say they want their state to pass an Arizona-style immigration law.


However, according to the same poll, 45% feel that the Arizona law will lead to discrimination against Hispanics.


Fifty-three percent of white voters were in favor of the law, while the poll indicated 43% of blacks opposed it, along with 52% of Hispanics.

Men were more supportive of the legislation than women, with 55% of males agreeing with it, while only 42% of women sided with the law.
