Poll: Country Supports Immigration Crackdown

Ad Feedback

There seems to be a lot of support across the country for Arizona's recent immigration crackdown.

A New York Times/CBS News poll published on Monday found that 78 percent of people nationwide support the new law or agree it should be made even tougher, even though they say it could lead to racial profiling.

Support for the law is highest in the South and Midwest and lower in the Northeast and West.

Republicans tend to favor the law most and other polls show Independents were siding with them.

Most of the poll's respondents favored a solution from the federal government to solve the immigration problem.

The poll was conducted April 28 through May 2 with 1,079 adults, with a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.

The passage of the law by Arizona on April 23 has triggered a national debate over securing America's borders and what to do with the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants already in this country.
