    Poll: Ariz. voters favor immigration enforcement

    Poll: Ariz. voters favor immigration enforcement
    (AP) – 3 hours ago

    PHOENIX — A poll released Wednesday found that an overwhelming majority of Arizona voters support the types of provisions that are at the heart of a national debate involving the state's immigration law.

    The survey conducted on behalf of Arizona State University's Morrison Institute for Public Policy found 81 percent of registered voters approved of requiring people to produce documents that show they're in the country legally.

    It found that 74 percent believe police should be allowed to detain anyone who's unable to verify their legal immigration status, and 68 percent say police should be allowed to question anyone suspected of being in the country illegally.

    The survey of 614 registered voters was conducted July 16-Aug. 6 and has a sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

    Halfway through the poll's duration, U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton put the law's most controversial portions on hold.

    Bolton blocked contentious provisions that required immigrants to obtain or carry immigration registration papers, and one that required police, while enforcing other laws, to question people's immigration status if there is a reasonable suspicion they're in the country illegally.

    Arizona voters overwhelmingly favor even the most controversial provisions within SB 1070, according to a poll released Wednesday Arizona State University’s Morrison Institute for Public Policy.

    The electronic poll, conducted by the Morrison Institute and Knowledge Networks, sampled 614 Arizona voters regarding three of the most controversial measures in SB 1070:

    • requiring people to produce documents verifying legal status;
    • allowing police to detain those unable to produce verification of legal status;
    • and requiring police to question anyone they suspect may be in the country illegally.

    The poll found that 64 percent of all registered voters support all three provisions, while only 17 percent oppose all three.
