Get Perl to accept double quotes (") as input arguments

Hello,
  How do I get Perl to recognize double quotes (") as an input argument?  For example:

perl.exe invoke.pl TEST xmlns:ns1="http://www.example.org"

and I need the 2nd argument to retain the ".

my $var = $ARGV[1];
print $var

Should print
xmlns:ns1="http://www.example.org"

Thanks
