The Latino Face of the GOP's Immigration Reform Blockade | Fernando Espuelas

More broadly, for Latinos across this country, immigration reform is a touchstone issue, and has become less about the impact to their own families and more a proxy for how they're treated -- respected -- in the U.S. Most polls show a near 80 percent Latino support for comprehensive immigration reform with a path toward citizenship. (Such support is echoed by 70 percent+ support from all Americans.)

Uh; people DON'T demand "respect"; they earn it. If a bunch of people want to come to the US: do it LEGALLY or go HOME! Sheesh!

I believe the stats that 80% of Latinos support amnesty but I don't believe that 70% of non-Latino Americans do. Espuelas is grasping at straws. What I would like to know is why Latinos think their ethnic group should be above our immigration laws and rewarded for breaking them.

I checked out the Illegal Immigration forum. It looks all but dead.

Not for the better? Would it make America too brown for you?

I read a report done by a reputable source, that showed only 25% of Latinos say that immigration is the most important aspect of making a decision on whom to vote for. Seems a bit off?

I do agree. Come here legally- or go home. I'm tired of rewarding criminals. Albeit some good people, they are still criminals by definition of our laws.

Comments like that are ridiculous, and definitely not needed. Keep on throwing the race card. Study some FACTS before you post.

Too Marxist, but then again everything is about race to the left..

Why should we open the flood gate of the 3rd world? what do we gain? more welfare voters? 30 million new dems to replenish their ranks?
