Majority of AZ Latinos support immigration bill - Rasmussen

Clarice Feldman
Hot Air reports that the majority of the Latinos in Arizona appear to support that state's tough new immigration bill, according to the Rasmussen poll of that state:
Fully 70 percent overall support this part of the law, and given the fact that Latinos compose most of the "other" category, a majority of their demographic must be in favor too. A few caveats, though. One: Rasmussen polls likely voters, so this is obviously a sample of citizens. Other polls that use "adults" as their sample are bound to show sharply lower numbers since they'll include some illegals too. Two: Notwithstanding the support for letting cops inquire, 53 percent overall say they're either very or somewhat concerned that the law will lead to civil-rights violations. Among the "other" group, it's 54 percent - but of that number, 40 percent say they're very concerned and just 14 percent say somewhat. (Among all likely voters, that split is 23/30.) So yeah, it's an issue, and if it starts happening, expect support to start crumbling.
