10. Wrong

 

Importing illegal labor had a devastating affect on low skilled American workers. African American and Hispanic American workers were hit hard by the competition and lowering of wages. Their plight was just ignored.

Just as outsourcing was ignored when it hit them first. It only became an issue when it started moving up the ladder and affecting white middle class families.

Once again you have this notion that Hispanics only voted over immigration. Really? Every Hispanic I know was more concerned about social security , healthcare, education and other issues just like other Americans.

I live in one of the most diverse states and areas in this country. I can tell you for a fact there are a lot of democratic Hispanics who oppose illegal immigration and amnesty. It is not as clear cut as some pretend and there will be compromises.
