Immigration not important to Hispanics?


Yep you heard it, okay well at least it's not number 1. Recent studies have shown "immigration ranked just 6th out of the top 7 concerns, behind national security and the environment, but ahead of energy policy." To be honest I completely agree with this issue. Every time someone brings up "issues with Hispanic" they are quick to assume it's immigration. If you think about it, it's obviously the same thing as other groups. Look the economic crisis, hello! ArkansasMatter.com reported:
Unemployment in the Latino community is just shy of ten percent, compared to nearly seven percent for whites.

"Latino's have paid a price, a higher price, than many other groups in terms of
the consequences of the current economic crisis."
So what do you think is going to happen in the next few years? NBC (online) is actually running a series all this week entitled “We the People,” Issues Facing Hispanic Americans.
