Editorial pages may rage against the Arizona immigration law, but a solid majority of Americans support it, an IBD/TIPP poll found.

Sixty percent back the law, with 40% strongly favoring it, according to preliminary results. Meanwhile, 30% oppose it, with 20% strongly disapproving it. The remaining 10% are unsure.

The responses show a public increasingly frustrated with the response by local, state and federal authorities and welcoming solutions — like Arizona’s law — that would have been politically untenable a few years ago.

“The majority of Americans support the Arizona law, though they may have some concerns about it,” said Raghavan Mayur, president of TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence, which conducted the poll.

Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which favors restrictionist policies, says the poll is not surprising. Border control policies are always popular, he notes.

The law, signed by GOP Gov. Jan Brewer on April 23, lets state and local law enforcement scrutinize a person’s citizenship after a “lawful contact” (arrest or other action).

Similar laws are being proposed for Pennsylvania, Missouri, Texas, Maryland and Oklahoma, though they are in preliminary stages.
