    (SB County Sun)- A new study shows Latinos have soured considerably on illegal immigration in the last three years.
    In 2007, 50 percent of Latinos surveyed told the Pew Hispanic Center that the growing number of illegal immigrants was a positive force for the existing Latino population. In a Pew survey released Thursday, that number had plummeted to 29 percent.
    Thirty-one percent said illegal immigration had a negative effect, and 20percent said it had no effect.
    While the wording of the question changed slightly in 2010 – striking the phrase “growing number” to reflect studies that show illegal immigration declining – several local advocates on different sides of the issue called the change in perception unsurprising.
    Those Inland Empire voices diverged significantly, however, when it came to explaining the shift and what it means for immigration policy.
    Raymond Herrera, president and founder of a Claremont-based group called We the People, California’s Crusader, said political will has been shifting since 2004.
    Herrera said that’s when activists like him began loudly calling for reform, slowly building what he said is a national consensus that illegal immigrants should be deported.

    They're voting against their best interests.

    Or so white liberals say.

    My goodness!

    What will both parties do now?

    Continue to support unfettered illigal immigration like they've both been doing for the last 30 years?

    Yeah, I expect that's exactly what they're gonna do.

    Since they didn't give a crap what Americans generally thought about it, I'm more than just a little bit sure they don't give a crap about what Hispanic Americans think about it, either.

    CA may spilt into three separate states, it's not sustainable as it is

    Nah, then it's game over, because three smaller states are no longer "too big to fail."
