A statewide opinion poll of likely Alabama voters finds broad support for the state's immigration enforcement law, HB 56. The survey of 500 likely voters was conducted by Public Opinion Research and commissioned by Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR). 

Seventy-five percent of Alabama voters support HB 56, with 52 percent of voters saying they "strongly support" the law.

Fifty-nine percent beliebe it "will free up jobs for other Alabama workers and will save the state money on services for illegal immigrants." 

Two-thirds, 66 percent, believe the law "will only be enforced when there is evidence that someone of any race or ethnicity is in the country illegally and will not rely on profiling.

Fifty-four percent of Alabama voters want to keep the law on the books.
