10. Supporters contend the Arizona law is a necessary response to combat a list of problems they believe are caused by illegal immigration and the federal government's inability to secure the border, while opponents say the law will
lead to racial profiling and that it will negatively affect the rights of individuals, both legal and illegal, in Arizona. Do you agree more with the supporters, the opponents or do you think they both have a legitimate position?

11. The Arizona Law is supported by attorneys general from nine other states. Others argue that immigration policy and any immigration reform must come from and be regulated and enforced by the federal government. Do you think
states should be allowed to make and enforce their own immigration laws, or should this be left to Federal jurisdiction?

17. Supporters of the proposed community center, known as the Cordoba House, say it would demonstrate the presence of moderate Muslims in New York as well as serve as a monument to religious tolerance. Opponents say the
project is an offense to the memory of those killed in the attacks on 9/11 and displays unacceptable insensitivity. Do you tend to agree with the supporters, the opponents or do you think they both have a legitimate position?
