WASHINGTON - Illegal immigrants are a boon, not a burden, to the country, a resounding majority of Hispanics say, according to an Associated Press-Univision Poll that underscores sharp contrasts between the views of Hispanics and others. Most non-Hispanics say illegal immigrants are a drain on society.

Most Hispanics condemn Arizona's strict new law targeting undocumented immigrants, while only 20 percent of non-Hispanics oppose it
Poll: 67% of Hispanics oppose new Ariz. statute

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.

Probably because only 33% of "hispanics" respect the laws of this country because they are here legally while 67% are not.

I'd like for all that oppose this law to move to a border state and have them stay there for one week, especially Arizona. 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.

And rapists are a boon to the country...according to 67% of the rapists interviewed.

Armed robbers are a boon to their community...according to 83% of the armed robbers polled.

What an idiotic comparison here. Are you implying Hispanics opposed to this law are illegal immigrants?

Well, let's run through the particulars....

Legal Hispanics, immigrant or native born have nothing to fear.

Racial profiling is strictly forbidden by this law, which will rely instead upon a person's lack of proper identification (carried by nearly all Americans of driving age) before status will even be questioned--which merely perpetuates existing U.S. law and institutes nothing that was not already provided for in Bill Clinton's 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform and Responsibility Act.

The law does not violate the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution.

Ergo, since only illegal immigrants, no matter what their ethnicity, need fear this law, deductive reasoning would lead one to believe that rational, intelligent, and LEGAL Hispanics were not the majority of those polled.

Did the poll in question also ask the hispanics if they were illegal aliens? No? Then that would mean that they were not excluded from the poll. That is fairly simple reasoning.

Do we care for the opinion of anyone that supports illegal activity? It seems the hispanics are in favor of crime. I guess that is why their country is in the shape it's in. Let's stop them before America looks like Mexico! Deport illegals!
