On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will be reviewing Arizona's S.B 1070 sometime next spring. A new telephone survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports, asked likely U.S. voters if they would support immigration-enforcement legislation similar to Arizona's in their state. Over 52% of voters said they would support the legislation. Thirty-four percent of those surveyed said they would oppose the legislation, and 15% more are undecided.
In addition, a Rasmussen Reports survey revealed that 73% of likely U.S voters believe the federal government is not doing enough to stop illegal immigration.
These surveys come at a time in which the U.S Department of Justice is involved in several lawsuits against states for passing tougher laws on illegal immigration, in addition to the Arizona case.
