Despite a judge’s ruling putting key provisions of Arizona’s new immigration law on hold,most U.S. voters still favor passage of such a law in their own state. They also think it’s better to have states enforce immigration law rather than to rely on the federal government.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, taken after the judge’s Tuesday ruling, finds that 59% favor passage of an Arizona-like immigration law in their state, marking little change from earlier this month. Just 32% oppose such a law.
