The Latinos That CNN Won't Interview
Gee, I wonder why?

Interesting story "Migrant Issue Divides Latinos" from the Arizona Republic, written by Daniel Gonzalez.

Here are a few lines;

"That's the objective of the marches. To give the impression that all Latinos are for allowing the illegals to become citizens. Well, I'm not," Phoenix resident Lionel De La Rosa said.

Born in Texas, the 71-year-old Vietnam veteran favors punitive measures more in line with the immigration bill passed by the House in December that would have made being in the United States illegally a felony.

"I'm for that 100 percent," he said. "As far as my Latino friends are concerned, they all agree on this.

Meanwhile, south Phoenix resident Elsie Orta has no plans to participate in today's march in Phoenix.

"Other Hispanics have told me to go to the demonstrations," said Orta, 55, who said her mother is from New Mexico and her father's family traces its roots to Spain. "I think it's hurting them. They're making a fool of themselves."

The Phoenix native believes Arizona is under siege by undocumented immigrants who speak Spanish, use public services and take jobs away from citizens. Undocumented immigrants, she said, should be deported.

"They want us to cater to them all the time," she said. "They're coming over here, they're taking our jobs. And now, everything has to be in English and Spanish? I don't think so.
They need to go back."

Not much sympathy for this sort of "reform" from us Latins in Miami, lest the world think "we" are all "unified" against the USA.

I love the incident reported in that link about clashes between the recent immigrants and legal Latino residents in Phoenix. So these illegals are ungrateful and a menace to their own ethnic kin!

It will never happen but I'm all in favor of massive deportations.
