Supporters Of AZ Law Want Comprehensive Reform As Well, Poll Shows

 

Posted by Avril Lighty, civilrights.org

WASHINGTON - Contrary to popular belief, the majority of voters who support the controversial Arizona immigration law SB 1070 also overwhelmingly support comprehensive immigration reform, according to a new poll conducted by Lake Research Partners for America's Voice.  

In a poll of 800 registered voters surveyed in May, 60 percent of respondents said that they support the Arizona law, while 78 percent support comprehensive immigration reform. Out of the segment of voters who support SB 1070, 84 percent were also in favor of comprehensive immigration reform after it was described to them.

Fifty-six percent of voters – both supporters and opponents of the Arizona law – believed immigration should be handled by the federal government. The majority of SB 1070 supporters said the reason they supported the law was because they were frustrated with the federal government's failure to solve the problem. 

The Leadership Conference and the civil rights community have long supported comprehensive immigration reform legislation that provides a path to citizenship for undocumented workers, reduces family visa backlogs, ramps up enforcement while respecting civil rights and liberties, and protects the rights of workers regardless of immigration status.
