Poll finds majority support controversial AZ immigration law

A new CNN poll finds 75% of Americans support the controversial Arizona immigration law that allows law enforcement officials to question a suspect's immigration status after they have already been detained for another reason.

When the law was passed in 2010, it led to a firestorm of controversy in the national debate over illegal immigration. Opponents feared that police would use the law to harass and racially profile Hispanics, while supporters claimed that the federal government doesn't do enough to fight illegal immigration and the state was simply trying to fill that void.

The Obama administration even sued the state in court and blocked portions of the law, claiming the state was overreaching. Erin Burnett talks to legal contributor Paul Callan and political contributor, senior columnist at the Daily Beast, and political strike team member John Avlon about the connection between public opinion, the court, and the law.

Triple Crown-winning trainer says horses are worked too hard

Another year, another Triple Crown dream dashed.

Erin Burnett was at Belmont on Friday as I'll Have Another, the horse poised to win the first Triple Crown in over thirty years, shocked the world by retiring the day before the race. He was sidelined by what his trainer described as a "freakish" injury.

She caught up with Billy Turner, the only living trainer to have a horse win a Triple Crown (Seattle Slew, 1977), and asked him about I'll Have Another's injury and why it's been so long since we've seen another champion.
