Perhaps not those who have jumped thru the hoops and paid their dues to come here legally but most of the rest of them do.

Again, I'll argue that your location has something to do with that belief. California supports illegals in many ways, ie drivers license and social programs, to name a few. Texas does not. Additionally, Texas is a red state vs. California is a blue state, and the demographics reflect that.
I guess we have a difference of opinion, no big deal. As far as using La Raza as a source, very biased frankly.

Texas also has a large Hispanic population both citizen, legal and illegal immigrant. You can't possibly believe that there aren't numerous Hispanics in that state that don't want amnesty. The only difference of opinion that I see is yours and that other poster claiming that the majority of Hispanics in this country who have roots from south of our border don't want amnesty just because you spoke with a few who don't desire it. All the facts support that no matter whom you have talked to. These amnesty supporters are those who agree with the La Raza agenda.

Your governor supports illegals, ours does not. Agree to disagree.

What does that have to do with what we were discussing? Agree to disagree on what? We were discussing the number of Hispanics who are for amnesty nationwide.

Jeb Bush on May 13 said, "I'm running for president in 2016, and the focus is going to be about how we, if I run, how do you create high sustained economic growth," .... say what?

Greg Abbott is 100x's more against illegal aliens, than former Democrat Rick Perry ever was.

The Hispanic Americans hate illegal aliens, here in Texas.
It is those that are first gen birthright hispanics and thier illegal alien moms, that are all for letting their family unit and all their friends to be able to come here and fly the Mexican flag.

The war was set in Afghanistan whether Bush or Gore won in 2000, 9/11/01 was still going to happen. Iraq, that is another story. I agree with why Iraq was invaded, personally that is what we should have done in 1991. As for the recession, that too isn't exactly Bush's fault but like Hoover during the Great Depression, if you don't show the effort of trying to fix things, you aren't fixing things.

Oh really?

On Iraq question, Jeb Bush stumbles and the GOP hopefuls pounce - The Washington Post

He's a splishing and a splashing, flipping and a flopping.........

Now you place traction on whether or not those boobs running for president would have engaged had they known then what they know now ....if they had a claim to more than two functioning brain cells; they had all the information they needed to have known it then !
