Half of Americans oppose Obama's immigration lawsuit: poll

20 mins ago

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Half of Americans reject President Barack Obama's lawsuit against Arizona's controversial immigration law, with only a third supporting the move, according to a Gallup poll released Friday.

With key midterm elections just around the corner in November, the Obama administration is facing strong support for the law, which makes it a crime to be in the state -- bordering Mexico -- without proper immigration papers.

"Emotions run high on both sides of the issue," Gallup said. "The substantial majority of those in favor and those opposed to the lawsuit say they feel strongly about their position."

It noted that those who followed news about the law most closely were most likely to oppose it.

Obama's Democratic administration is seeking an injunction through the Justice Department to stop the Arizona law from going into effect on July 29, slamming it as unconstitutional, abusive and divisive.

Nearly eight in 10 Republicans (79 percent) opposed the lawsuit, while 56 percent of Democrats were in favor of the Obama administration's decision.

Overall, 50 percent of Americans said they were against the move, compared to 33 percent in favor.

Other polls have also shown strong national support for Arizona's measure, the first law making illegal immigration a state crime.

"The Obama administration is sailing against the tide of public opinion in its efforts to block the law, although members of Obama's own party certainly support the administration," Gallup said.

But the political implications of the federal government's decision are "difficult to predict with precision" with less than four months remaining before legislative and gubernatorial elections, it added.

The most hilarious part of this lawsuit is that it doesn't even mention racial profiling in it after Obama and his cronies publicly harped loudly on and on and on about it to pander to Hispanics. Yet it is nowhere to be found in the lawsuit. Apparently most Americans aren't as stupid as Obamaites think we are. This whole charade is a pure political publicity stunt whether they win the lawsuit or not.

Populism should never trump our beloved Constitution.

And neither should selective ideological considerations be used to cherry pick which constitutional issues are pursued by DoJ.

If you really believe that's the case then what are you worried about? The courts will then uphold SB1070 and you'll be vindicated. Fretting over the lawsuit only shows a unsettling nervousness that the DOJ may actually have the Constitution on its side.

No, we are nervous because the DOJ is being used for political ends rather than what it is meant for. The lawlessness of this administration is breathtaking.

You are missing the point on purpose. The DOJ has no grounds to sue AZ over this law. It does not in any way infringe on the feds right to regulate immigration. This lawsuit is for purely political motives. But since you are an open border type of course you like this lawsuit.

You're not making any sense. The OP demonstrates that the Arizona law is popular. The Obama Administration is challenging the law on constitutional grounds. If the court upholds the law as constitutional, you can giggle with elation. Fretting over the DOJ challenging the constitutionality of this law is just blowing hot air.

You are still missing the point on purpose. The DOJ has no business challenging this law in the first place. Several other states have laws that are very close to this one. The Obama administration is doing this for pure political theater. They should be concentrating on stuff they are suppost to be doing, like putting America back to work. This whole thing stinks of politics.

It is when white independents that voted for you are fleeing in droves. So what do you do? Rally the Hispanic vote in a lame attempt pander to their open borders sentiment. Couple that with a mass blanket illegal alien amnesty of mostly Hispanics disguised as "comprehensive immigration reform" and the future looks like a Democrat wet dream. It may not get Obummer reelected, but the prospects for the far Left agenda will certainly live on after Obama gets thrown out in 2012.

These people are just trying to get in as many self serving licks as they can before the American public figures out what phonies they are.

Most Hispanics voters and almost all black voters tend to vote Democratic regardless. Apparently abortion doesn't and hasn't scared them away yet. Neither do a lot of other issues of the Left that conservatives in both of those groups usually find repulsive. It's a mystery to me.
