I think the sentiment will grow even higher once all of America is informed. This shows those who are informed favor enforcing the law.

Quote:
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer last week signed a new law into effect that authorizes local police to stop and verify the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being an illegal immigrant. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds that 60% of voters nationwide favor such a law, while 31% are opposed.
Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Republicans support the law along with 62% of voters not affiliated with either major party. Democratic voters are evenly divided on the measure.
At the same time, however, 58% of all voters are at least somewhat concerned that “efforts to identify and deport illegal immigrants will also end up violating the civil rights of some U.S. citizens.” That figure includes 29% who are Very Concerned about possible civil rights violations.
As people understand and see this will not violate Americans civil rights, all will calm in my opinion with the exception of pro-illegal alien advocates which still boggles me.

Just for perspective, 60% or 600 of 1000 people are in favor of this.

Here is the problem with many Rasmussen polls, their "Sample Size" is too low to make their assertions.

It only works if in favor of pro-illegal aliens? This is a respected source by many.

Also, every SINGLE Rasmussen poll has a right wing tilt to it. They even claim almost 60% of voters favor health care repeal and on every social issue, their polls tend to support and reinforce republican talking points.

Support for a welcoming immigration policy is a bit higher among Republicans than it is among Democrats or voters not affiliated with either of the parties.

To say that republicans are more welcoming on immigration policy than democrats is laughable at best.

Apparently, 58% of those polled disagree with your statement.

58% disagree with which of my statements? That 58% suggest they are "somewhat concerned". I stand by my statement that as they learn more, they'll see that their "somewhat concern" will prove unfounded.

For the record, I'm not a Republican. I am a registered Democrat, but more importantly an American concerned for this country on all of the issues raised by illegal immigration..

All it takes is a few lawsuits, Sheriff Joe abusing his power, boycotts, etc...

AZ will be in the spotlight now (no longer illegals)...better not mess up or those polls will flip on their side in a millisecond.

Then 60% of the people are flat out wrong.

People keep throwing out the term "Pro-illegal alien", trying to make it a "you're either with us or against us" situation. I'd like to debunk this myth. Nobody, I say Nobody on the right or the left or the middle is pro illegal alien. Get it? Nobody. Where we differ is how to solve the illegal alien problem which we all agree exists. Discounting the far, far right who want to line them up against a brick wall and shoot them and the far far left who want to give sanctuary to everyone and anyone, the rest of the 99.99% of the American people of all races want illegal immigration to stop and stop now. Stop trying to divide us with your "pro-illegal" crap. It's just a right wing myth.
