    You're entirely wrong. In fact I was using figures from 2006, here are more recent figures:

    Present-day countries of origin[edit]

    According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the countries of origin for the largest numbers of illegal immigrants are as follows (latest of 2009):[10]


    Country of origin

    Raw number

    Percent of total

    Percent change 2000 to 2009

    Mexico 6,650,000 62% +42%
    El Salvador 530,000 5% +25%
    Guatemala 480,000 4% +65%
    Honduras 320,000 3% +95%
    Philippines 270,000 2% +33%
    India 200,000 2% +64%
    Korea 200,000 2% +14%
    Ecuador 170,000 2% +55%
    Brazil 150,000 1% +49%
    China 120,000 1% -37%
    Other 1,650,000 15% -17%

    Re: President Obama to announce executive action on immigration Thursday

    Obama is happy whenever America becomes less White, less Christian and less Constitutional.

    I wonder if he and Holder will be joining Al and Jesse and other Black supremacists in their ethnic cleansing campaign in Ferguson?

    Re: President Obama to announce executive action on immigration Thursday

    This is going to deeply damage the black community. What opportunities exist will dry up further.

    In fact, this hurts literally everybody. Republicans and Democrats, whites, blacks, Hispanics, young, old, college grads, non-college grads, etc, etc.

    It is literally good for nobody in America except for the illegals themselves. It dilutes everything for everybody, and it invites waves more.

    And for what? A step toward one day winning elections?

    It's as if Obama detests this country so much, he'll do anything to destroy it from within.

    Why the rush? Who is it that feels such a need to get this done as soon as possible?

    Heya Erod. It appears many Latinos are not for BO's Amnesty themselves.


    Poll: Many Latinos Disapprove of Obama's Executive Amnesty

    A new NBC poll shows Latinos do not overwhelmingly support President Obama's decision to thwart Congress on amnesty through executive action.


    Nearly half of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama’s expected plan to take executive action that would potentially allow millions of undocumented immigrants to stay legally in the United States, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Latinos are divided, with 43 percent supporting the action and 37 percent opposing it. But the sample size here is small (just 110 Latino respondents), so the numbers have a high margin of error.

    There's just a six percent difference in Latinos who do and do not support the President's plan to rewrite immigration law with an executive order. Notice how NBC was sure to add a note questioning the numbers due to a small sample size, ignoring that the margin of error could also result in more Latinos being against executive amnesty......snip~

    You wouldn't think a Hispanic American would want to legalize these people any more than anyone else.

    But you see the rallies, and you wonder. Do they think this will help them in some way? No, it dilutes the pool for them as it does everyone else.

    Re: President Obama to announce executive action on immigration Thursday

    To me, it's becoming more and more obvious that Obama's primary goal is to screw up and change this country as much as possible with the time he has.

    He grew up all over the world. He's not American like most Americans are. He wants to knock America off its pedestal and make it equal to the rest of the world, not better than.

    Says it Right here.


    Despite what the media would have us believe, immigration reform is often at the bottom of the priority list for Latino voters and a majority want enforcement before a comprehensive overhaul.

    By a margin of 56 percent to 40 percent, Hispanic voters oppose allowing illegal immigrants to obtain federal benefits, including Obamacare benefits, “while they are going through the legalization process and before the 90% goal is reached.” When asked to choose which of four issues — the economy, immigration reform, education, or health care — is most important to them, registered Hispanic voters said immigration reform was their lowest priority. Just 31 percent ranked the issue first or second, compared with 62 percent for the economy, 57 percent for health care, and 45 percent for education. Non-registered voters, on the other hand, ranked immigration reform as their highest priority. Generally speaking, registered Hispanic voters were far more likely to support tougher security and enforcement measures than non-registered voters. For example, 64 percent of registered voters said they supported employment verification to determine if job applicants are lawful residents, compared with just 46 percent of non-registered voters. Additionally, 55 percent of registered voters backed increased border-security measures (fencing, drones, police, etc.), compared with 45 percent of non-registered voters.....snip~


    Then there is this poll for the country.

    Almost half of Americans, 48 percent, disapprove of President Obama's decision to grant executive amnesty to an unknown number of illegal immigrants, according to a new NBC News poll, while just 38 percent support the idea.

    All more proof in my mind that Obama wants to disembowel this country from within. American citizens don't want this, so why does he?

    Because he is counting on the Latinos to vote for the Demo in 2016. For future political aspirations of his party.

    That (bolded above) assertion is not correct. It helps those that employ them. Obama proposes to make 30% to 50% of "illegal" labor legal. What could possibly be better to help keep wages low (and profits high) than to expand the pool of qualified candidates for McJobs?
