A new Washington Post/ABC News found that a big majority of Americans support the Arizona immigration law, which basically enforces existing immigration laws that the federal government has ignored or is incapable of enforcing.
- 58 percent of Americans say they are supportive of the new law.
- Another poll, from Zogby, shows that 53% of Americans agree with deploying troops on the Mexican border as a temporary measure. 40% disagree.
Many liberals have accused the Governor of Arizona, Jan Brewer, of racist, when she even followed up with legislation that makes it a crime to arrest someone based on the color of their skin. And just in case, there can be a handsome tall blonde blue-eyed man from Sweden residing illegally in Arizona. Would it be “racial profiling” if the police stopped a man like the one I described in the sentence before?
SB 1070 targets illegal immigrants, who came to the U.S. from any part of the world. Racial profiling is not an issue here. It’s not like President Obama said once:
“But now suddenly if you don’t have your papers and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re going to be harassed”
You are going to be stopped and asked for identification, if for example, you ran a stop-sign. Normal people usually carry with them their driver’s license when they’re driving, you know….
Many government officials have been critical of this legislation, but of course, they didn’t even bother to read the 17-pages-long law.
Reading is good for you, Democrats!
Answer this poll:
Viva la 1070! 🙂
