They hold no water in this argument, so they nitpick and look for that grain of salt to divide amongst themselves.

33% for this law is still a significant number, because supposedly Hispanics are the group that oppose any "anti-illegal" measures. The rest of the 66% either are most likely:
1.) Feeding into the "Racism" hype.
2.) Darker skinned, so they fear they will be profiled. (May tie in with #1 here).
3.) Have illegal relatives.

A private poll could but probably wouldn't ask hispanics if they were illegal aliens. So if 33% of legal hispanics support the bill, then the surprising 67% of hispanics who oppose the bill are either illegal aliens themselves or aiders and abetters of illegal aliens. This would explain why most illegal alien infestations are found right in the middle of the hispanic community. I sympathise with legal hispanics who oppose illegal immigration but they're going to be taking heat for some time to come because of the other 67%

it's a spanish thing... doesn't matter where they're from, the majority is against it, because they're all a bunch of racist, uneducated, ignorant morons. the ones that oppose it either
are legal and
1. haven't read the bill
2. can't understand why we wont let illegals overrun our borders
or
are illegal


so either they're stupid or they're criminals... either way eff em

the proceeds going to the Border Patrol !

Yet dark skinned Anglo Whites as a group almost feel it is badge of honor to be 'profiled' by LE and come out clean. Maybe it is because of their contempt towards illegal aliens on a more personal level.

That concerns me as well: thank for nothing; you bloody illegal alien apologists. Methinks your kind are the biggest 'race traitors' out there since you want to drag the good name of Americans of Mexican, etc. lineage down with your 'pets'.

It amazes me all of the opinions from those who have no clue what they speak of. Even Eric Holder has no clue and admitted he has formed his opinion by reading articles and hearing chatter. More media coverage is needed to show what America is really up against. Thank god for the internet for those of us who choose to actually look things up, media coverage would make people actually see the truth, when it's not spun or taken out of context to produce a sway in opinion.

I've also read that most people are not falling for all of the negative rhetoric and consider themselves smart enough to see through the bull. Too bad for those who simply ignore truth and hang onto falsities.

refresh my memory, what border state are you from? and do you live close to the border?

Well; said 'Hispanics' best deal with the fact that the illegal immigration party is over. Either the people in question become true Americans or they may be happier in moving to another country.

The fact that 33% of Hispanics are for it, speaks volumes.
