Nationally, 60% Favor Letting Local Police Stop and Verify Immigration Status
Monday, April 26, 2010
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.
I wonder how many likely voters favor the president of the United States playing racially-prejudiced identity politics as he demagogues the Arizona law and other issues:
Obama speaks with unusual demographic frankness about his coalition in his appeal to “young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again.”
As for you white and Asian males, just shut the hell up. You SUCK!!!
Still, 60% of Americans. Who would have guessed that 3/5ths of America was composed of white and Asian males?
Somewhere between thirty and forty percent of the country would cheer Obama even if he were to lead us down to the level of Kim Jong Il and North Korea.
But pretty much everybody else supports Arizona and its illegal immigration policy against Obama and the federal government.
Update, April 29:
Let’s see, a few days ago seven police officers were murdered in Juarez, Mexico. Just yesterday, eight men were shot in the back and killed outside a nightclub in Juarez, Mexico. Fifteen people were murdered in 11 hours in Juarez. And at least 300 people were murdered just this month in that hellhole.
In Pinal County, Arizona, a sheriff’s deputy was shot with an AK-47 by a group of illegal immigrants and left for dead. And that just today.
This is the kind of crap that is going on every single day in Mexico. But liberals demand that Arizona and other border states just grin and bear it.
Also, when Janet Napolitano was governor of Arizona, she “implored Congress to fix the nation’s broken immigration system.” Governor Napolitano also demanded that the federal government pay her state $350 million every year for the cost of incarcerating illegal immigrant Mexican nationals. She said that the cost of doing the federal government’s job “could pay for all-day kindergarten for every 5-year-old in the state.” But now she’s part of the Obama administration, part of the problem, and suddenly everything is just fine.
Let me say this again: If you think Arizona is “racist” for trying to deal with a nightmarish problem that the federal government is utterly failing to even begin to TRY to deal with, you are a leftwing loon.
