Poll: Ariz. Voters Favor Immigration Enforcement

Wednesday, 01 Sep 2010 10:44 PM

A poll says 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 voters approved of requiring people to show documents indicating they're in the country legally.

It also found that 74 percent believe police should be allowed to detain anyone unable to verify their 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. It was released Wednesday.
