Regardless of how often you’ve been told otherwise — Arizona’s SB 1070 is really not so “controversial.” There’s nothing controversial, after all, about expecting those entering our country to do so lawfully and respectfully.
A new Fox News poll shows 65 percent of voters favor the law, while 31 percent oppose it. The negatives are not much of a surprise when that number is juxtaposed against the 2011 U. S. Census numbers showing the Hispanic population in Arizona stands at 29.6. Nationally, the figure is 16.3.
Republicans favor Arizona’s law, by 84 percent, while 46 percent of Democrats are supportive. Democrats oppose the law by 51 percent.
In October 2010, Rasmussen Reports indicated Arizona voters are “still bullish” about the state’s law.
