Hispanic voters understand that giving citizenship to illegal aliens will not be good for them or for Americans. Of the Hispanics in this poll who opposed a path to citizenship, 33% said that it was because of the bad effect it would have on the economy. Others said that it would overburden public schools and 10% said that it would create a public safety issue. Remember – all of these reasons were given by Hispanic voters. Presidential candidates should understand that Hispanic voters know that amnesty is bad for them and for all Americans.
Illegal immigrants take American jobs and use lots of public services such as schools and welfare handouts. Many illegal immigrants do not speak English and therefore cannot communicate well enough to be productive citizens of this country. Some illegal immigrants are dangerous felons who are a serious threat to the safety of American citizens. Any candidate who really wants to win the Hispanic vote will form an immigration policy that demands that illegals be sent back to their home countries and that measures be taken to secure America’s southern border. America should be a safe place for all American citizens and residents, including Hispanics.
