Two-thirds of Americans back Arizona law



According to a new NBC/WSJ poll, nearly two-thirds of Americans back Arizona's new anti-illegal immigration. Really? Did they poll me? I think not.

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.

Sixty-four percent favor this law, while 34 percent oppose it. But those numbers are essentially reversed among Latinos -- with 70 percent of them opposing the law, and only 27 percent supporting it.

The rest of the information will be released later this evening. Click here for more. And to read  up on local anti-immigrant bias, read this week's Boomer With Attitude column.
