Many are of the opinion that Latinos will not vote for Trump because # 1, of his position on summary deportation of undocumented people and #2, his gross and hateful behavior and rhetoric about them.

If you are Latino and ready to vote, do you believe this is true?

They aren't "undocumented" they are illegal aliens. Trump hasn't said anything hateful or gross in regards to illegal aliens. He just tells the truth about many of them. I'm not Latino but those who can vote tend to be supporters of illegal aliens because of ethnic ties. Not all but far too many of them. As they increase in numbers should we expect more of the same mindset? It's really disturbing if that be the case. The illegal kind have already shown they have no respect for our immigration laws. Legalizing them and putting them on a path to citizenship is the worse thing we can do for our country's future.

I'm half Latino and Trump has never said anything that offended me.

If anything, candidates who think Latinos are a monolith that votes in lockstep with La Raza and all want amnesty and open borders, are the ones who offend me. In fact, I find such pandering to be offensive and disgusting.

Did you mean to say "Mexican?"

Latinos aren't a unified voting block, are not a unified culture and encompass an entire hemisphere's worth of countries with different immigration experiences in and to the United States.

Latinos are those Hispanics south of our border and that includes Mexicans. There are many Central American Latinos that are coming here illegally also. So our citizens whose roots hail from there would probably be illegal alien supporters also. As I said, not all but many.

Do you self-identify as Latino American?

2] For the US census in 2010, American Community Survey, people counted as "Hispanic" or "Latino" are those who identify as one of the specific Hispanic or Latino categories listed on the census or ACS questionnaire ("Mexican," "Puerto Rican," or "Cuban") as well as those who indicate that they are "other Spanish, Hispanic, or Latino."

You really should do more "googling" to get your answers. I, frankly, don't care what you call someone in the US as they are either here legally or illegally. We don't care anything beyond that designation.

If you bother to "google" you'll find citizens that have come in legally are also fed up with the illegals coming in and feeding off the public assistance teat, having babies they can't support, committing crimes, and on and on and on.

All the stats are there. Also, those that harbor the illegals become criminals so the best thing a family member can do that is here illegally is GO HOME!
