A poll taken this month In CA showed that majorities of white, African-American and Asian-American voters all approve of the Arizona anti-immigrant law, SB1070. Latinos oppose it. Fifty-eight percent of white voters, 53 percent of African-Americans, and 50 percent of Asian-Americans back the law. 43 percent of Asian Americans oppose the law, while 71 percent of Latino voters oppose it and 24 percent support it.

The poll was multi-lingual with four Asian languages/dialects - Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese and Korean - alongside English and Spanish.

Vietnamese are the most likely to support the law and Koreans the least likely.
