Despite conservatives’ claims, 70 percent of Arizona’s Latinos oppose new anti-immigrant law.

Fox News continually claim that most Hispanics support the new Arizona law.

Marco Rubio: Polling has shown that Americans of Hispanic descent in Arizona support this bill just as strongly as the general population does.

J.D. Hayworth: Interestingly, a majority of Hispanics agree that this law should be enforced here in Arizona.

Bill O’Reilly: I’m not buying the fact that Hispanic-Americans en masse are against the law.

But the latest opinion poll from the US’s largest Spanish-language newspaper , La Opinion, shows the opposite to be true.

70 percent of Arizona Latinos “strongly oppose” SB-1070 and 11 percent “somewhat oppose” it.

The funniest comment here comes at the end of this segment when Sen. Pearce states, "The misinformation must stop."

He and his companions at Fox are the ones pedalling it.

Hat tip Think Progress.
