America Buys Into Arizona's Immigration Law

Posted by The MaryHunter at May 13, 2010 8:54 AM

Regardless of the rhetoric Dear Leader has been spouting in order to fan the flames against Arizona's "misguided" immigration law, the American public isn't buying it. A recent Pew Research Center poll shows overwhelming public support -- 73% agree that people should be required to produce documents verifying their legal status if police ask.

While Americans are 59% in support of the Arizona law per se, they are even more in support of individual items for which the law provides. The issue isn't completely partisan, either. While the nation is split along party lines on some areas, a significant majority of Democrats at least support the key provisions of the law: 65% of Dems support requiring folks to produce documents verifying their legal status and 55% support allowing the authorities to detain them if they can't somehow verify their status as legal residents.

With polling like this, will it be any surprise if the White House soft-sells the issue, diverting its resources instead toward another winner with the people, Cap and Trade? If only we had been so lucky with ObamaCare. Just how many more unpopular issues can Chairman Zero try to force on the American people and still expect to be re-elected?
