What social policies? You mean fiscal policies? Because blacks and Hispanics are mostly socially conservative (blacks being against LGBT rights but for abortion, Hispanics generally being against both) but they sure like their welfare, and they are both generally for gun control.

"They sure like their welfare?" What are you talking about? Who? Who are you? Where are you from?

It turns them off? Why does the enforcement of our immigration laws, turn them off?
I don't think you can choose to be an American. That's something that just has to come to you. Can you imagine an illegal immigration trying to switch from being a La Raza-loving, Reconquista type to an "American?" LOL Wouldn't work.

Such a law might pass, if a climate of fear and hostility such as that which gave rise to the passage of the aptly named Proposition 187 existed. Periods of economic crisis are conducive to such emotional sentiments among the general public, but overall, California is not as rightist a state as Arizona (which has non-enforcement of SB 1070 in a significant chunk of the state since essentially every single Indian tribe opposes it). A far more feasible alternative would be the passage of city or county wide measures in rightist strongholds such as Riverside County.

Why in the world would Indian tribes indigenous to our country oppose sb1070? They are afterall just as American as you or I.

I'm not the one you are replying to. But, to me, the largest and most obvious example would be La Raza.
