    How do you view the average immigrant from Latin America?

    Whether legal or not, how do you view them?

    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.



    EDIT

    The subtitles are clean, if they were accurate, there'd be a lot more swears in there

    The average immigrant? Most that I've dealt with have been fine folks who are simply looking to make a living. That's "most".

    I've also run into more than a handful that are scum and have come here to deal drugs, launder money and abuse anyone they come in contact with.

    Legal immigrants from Latin America, you mean?

    Positively.

    I'm the child of immigrants, myself, so it's only natural.

    However, I can't stand people that conflate legal and illegal immigrants as the same, it's insulting.

    Illegal immigrants? Negatively, doesn't matter where they come from. So, yea, very negatively in the case of illegal immigrants.

    Im also the son of an immigrant.

    Hard working. Proud. Strong family ties.

    Uneducated. Entitled. Tolerant of govt corruption.

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

    I've lived amongst Hispanics/Latins in Mexico, the US and Canada for the better part of the last quarter century. I am married to one. That said, the average Hispanic/Latin heard what Trump said, and whatever he meant does not translate well in Hispanic/Latin cultures. The average Mexican heard that **** and saw it as an attack on Mexican culture and values. Whether they're here legally or illegally is pretty much irrelevant. They saw it as an attack on them. That's not something they're going to let go of that easily. The best the GOP can do at this point is distance themselves from it all. Otherwise, 2016 will mean another Democrat in the WH.

    No, just immigrants in general. That is the thread and that is how it shall remain.

    Well, I broke it up into two parts since you can't just describe legal and illegal immigrants as one group like that.

    The average Mexican thinks the south west US belongs to mexico. Im less concerned with what they think or teach in their schools.

    It really is crazy how people have rallied around Donald Trump's comments going so far as to defend him because of what they feel he meant. It doesn't matter what they feel he meant. His actual words were pretty general and he did in fact make a comment on the people of Mexico. I have quite a few upper class friends in Mexico City. People who can enter the US at any time they want because of visas and citizenship. People who have traveled the world and spend $20K on bottle service a night. They saw his commentary the exact same way this laborer did. That's not a coincidence.
