    I saw this hilarious video on a guy's twitter and I figured I'd post it up here. Well, vote in the poll. You will either view them positively and explain, negatively and explain, or neutrally and explain.

    Immigrants? Just fine. Great people, based on those I have met and worked with.

    Illegal Immigrants? Tough to describe. I respect them wanting to better themselves here, yet I do not like that they do not respect me enough to follow the laws of my country.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Like an equal human being.

    Why would I think any differently?

    This isn't related to your comments on US Con's post. That said, shame on you for making the poll anonymous. It'd be nice to see who voted 'negatively'.

    I don't live in any area where Hispanic gangs are particularly prevalent, so I can't really say how that might change my perspective.

    From what I have seen, however, I'd say that Latino immigrants generally seem like pretty decent people. They're friendly, hard working, and polite.

    I have no problem with legal immigrants and do not view them negatively. People who **** on our sovereignty and immigration laws by coming into this country illegally or getting a visa in order to deliberately overstay it I do not have a positive opinion of.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well, I didn't expect you to actually own up to your blatant revisionism. However, I'll gladly bring it up any time you want to complain about what Mexicans believe.
    Obama lied about his deportation numbers, he changed how they were counted, stalkerazzi.

    Re: How do you view the average immigrant from Latin America?

    I voted negatively since the ones who came here illegally far outnumber the ones who came legally. I've lived in Southern California most of my life and have seen us colonized by third worlders who come here with very little to offer but with many needs. What a difference compared to the immigrants who came here from Europe after WW2. I went to school with these kids. First, they didn't come in huge numbers like the Latinos do, so they learned our language in a few weeks. Second, they came from a first world culture. Big difference. Obama and most democrats are pieces of crap for advocating more for illegals than for poor Americans, both black and white. Republicans are no better either. There are heavy fines for employers hiring illegals and how often does that happen?

    Then it's a loaded question. You are asking people's opinions two very different groups of people and to force them to make a stand one way or the other is dishonest.

    Re: How do you view the average immigrant from Latin America?

    While I am solidly against illegal immigration it has nothing to do with Latinos specifically. I find most to be hardworking and honest and would trade our welfare abusers one for one for any honest, hardworking immigrant if it were possible.
