A new poll finds Alabamians sharply divided over the fairness of Alabama's new immigration law.
The survey by the Center for Leadership and Public Policy at Alabama State University found 67 percent said there was a need for the law. But when asked if the law is fair, 48 percent said yes, 37 percent said no, and 14 percent weren't familiar with the law.
Senior demographer Myles Mayberry said many people see a need for a law, but they are not sure this is the right one.
The random telephone survey of 525 adult Alabamians was conducted between Nov. 1 and Dec. 8, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.
The poll was not conducted for any interest group.
