A survey by Public Policy Polling of Raleigh, N.C, finds support among a majority of Arkansans for S. 744, the immigration bill now being debated in the U.S. Senate.
The poll was released this afternoon at a news conference by Mayor Mark Stodola and UALR provost Dr. Zulma Toro, who said the bill would bring "tremendous" economic and educational benefits to Arkansas.
The poll, sponsored by the Alliance for Citizenship, Partnership for a New American Economy and Republicans for Immigration Reform, found that 67 percent of those polled in Arkansas supported the bill, crafted by the bipartisan "Gang of Eight," either "strongly" or "somewhat." Here's a link to the poll. (You'll note the language of the poll clearly indicates its origins.)
