Nearly 70 percent of Mexicans surveyed said that Mexican-Americans – including those born in the United States – owe their primary loyalty to Mexico, not the U.S., according to a Zogby poll commissioned by the Center for Immigration Studies.

The in-person poll, taken during August and September, sampled 1,004 Mexicans across the country on subjects related to illegal immigration and amnesty in the United States.

And if that poll is accurate; of which I have my doubts about-------------that is a damning indictment of so-called Mexican 'Americans'.

Frankly; if said poll is indeed accurate----------that alone would be just cause to severely limit immigration from SoB along with Draconian measures (within the law) to ramp up mass deportations and possibly strip US citizenship from minor age Anchor Babies.

How credible is a poll commission by an anti-immigrant group? It is not surprising that the results of the polls support the talking points propagated by these same groups.

It would be as credible as the polls commissioned by pro-illegal immigrant groups.
The fact is that most polls are designed to fulfill an agenda and seldom reflect anything related to reality.

Judging by the prevalence of Mexican flags during every “immigrant” protest march, I would say their allegiance is evident. They only started waving the U.S. flag due to the enormous backlash they received following their 2006 debacle. Now, their organizers instruct them to carry as many U.S. flags as possible. After all, they should at least feign love for this country. Of course, they still can’t resist waving the flag from the country they love; even if that country discarded them, and only wants them for the billions in remittances they faithfully send.

No, but those that did march were mostly Mexicans/Latinos both legal and illegal. That doesn't mean that they represented the viewpoint of all the Latinos in this country.
