    Immigration reform

    IT is now well known that hispanic immigrants who came here legally or illegally and then gained citizenship were a major reason for Obama winning Florida, Virginia Colorado and perhaps some other states. Several discussions I heard today noted that the welfare promises of the DNC rather than amnesty were the main reason why more than 2/3s of these hispanic immigrants voted for Obama. 75% of them are not well educated or have a skilled trade.

    Based on those assumptions, what should be done with our immigration policies

    Those assumptions have absolutely nothing to do with what we should do with our immigration policies.

    This is in the POLL section but I see no poll or choices in a poll.

    Exactly. And there is no evidence behind any of it.

    If you ever post a poll you would find that the initial post is published first and then the poll is added

    Even if it's all true, I don't see what difference it makes as to what our policy should be on immigration.

    This is no different than believing that many in poor communities believe that voting for Obama will get them more welfare. And if we're stupid enough to give welfare to illegal immigrants? We deserve exactly what we get.

    You are denying that hispanic immigrants played a major role in Florida going for Obama and the same for Colorado?

    No, I'm not denying it at all. I just don't think it has a damned thing to do what with our immigration policies should be. I don't know if that's true or false. It makes no difference.

    show us why we should find this to be factual:
    ... the welfare promises of the DNC rather than amnesty were the main reason why more than 2/3s of these hispanic immigrants voted for Obama ...
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
