S.B. 1070 Just Gets More Popular

The substance of Arizona’s S.B. 1070 immigration law, which the Supreme Court will consider tomorrow, really isn’t that significant. As Kirk Adams, the Speaker of the Arizona House when the bill was passed, said yesterday at the Heritage Foundation, it is “a relatively modest public safety bill.” But the anti-enforcement people decided they would make their stand on it and have turned it into a symbol of American sovereignty — which is why our post-American administration has opposed the law and why Mexico and 16 other countries have submitted an amicus brief against Arizona.

I figured the open-border crowd’s frenzied attacks on S.B. 1070 would at least soften public support for the bill. But I was wrong.

A Quinnipiac poll of registered voters taken Friday found the public supporting the bill 68–27. Hispanics were split down the middle, which you would never know if you listened just to the Soros/Ford Foundation protuberances who pretend to speak on their behalf. Even more remarkable is the fact that support has been increasing and opposition decreasing; the numbers in February were 64–32, and in November of last year were 61–34. Given that “don’t know/no answer” stayed the same, that means fully 20 percent of those who disapproved of the bill in November have changed their minds. (A Fox poll taken earlier in April found the same basic thing, with support for the bill running 65–31.)

Mark Krikorian, a nationally recognized expert on immigration issues, has served as Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) since 1995.
