A Rasmussen survey has found 60% of voters nationwide favor letting local police stop people and verify immigration status. Only 31% are opposed. Democrats are pushing to rush immigration reform to the top of their agenda in an attempt to score political points off in the wake of the new Arizona law allowing police to enforce immigration laws. If Democrats keep doubling-down on the wrong side of voters, they will face an Armageddon at the polls this November.
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.
