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.
