Excerpt Of The Day: Hispanic Americans On Illegal Immigration

“According to every poll taking the pulse of Hispanics in the past decade, this population takes seriously the issue of illegal immigration. That includes Mexican Americans, the one subgroup that you might think — because of their ancestors’ experience — would be most sympathetic to immigrants, even illegal ones.

One of the latest polls appeared in last week’s issue of Time magazine, in which 61 percent of Hispanics rated illegal immigration a “serious problem.”

Then there was the recent survey put out by the Pew Hispanic Center, which measured the views of both native-born Hispanics and immigrants. It found that a majority of U.S.-born Hispanics (60 percent) support laws that deny driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.” — Ruben Navarrette Jr
