More encouraging vital signs from the body politic via the LA Times:
Out Wednesday is a new CNN/Public Opinion poll indicating that even more Americans want:
-- The number of illegal immigrants decreased (76%, up from 73%).
-- Illegal immigrants removed from the country (41%, up from 37%).
-- To halt the influx of illegal immigrants and deport those here (60%).
-- To assign more federal agents to security on the Mexico border (88%).
-- To fine employers of illegal immigrants tens of thousands of dollars (71%).
As you may know, frustrated with federal inaction on border security, Arizona recently passed its own tough new law on illegal immigrants. Asked, "Do you favor or oppose this law?" 57% were in favor of it and 37% were opposed.
Now, how about boycotting Arizona over this new law? Nope -- 82%.
The Spirit of Arizona lives -- just not in Washington, DC.
