Ms. Dupuy: There is more to writing an opinion column (Opinion page, May 3) than ad hominem remarks against those that have differing views. You presented, virtually, no facts. You speculate that the police will be guilty of abusing the law before they even carry out their duties.

The immigration law that passed in Arizona mimics the federal law to avoid the problems you mentioned.

It's just that the federal government is not enforcing the existing law. When this happens, it is the responsibility of the state government to protect it citizens. The fact that approximately 70 percent of Arizona and 60 percent of Americans support the law hardly constitutes them as a fringe.
