Here’s undeniable evidence that the people of Mexico are much much smarter than Americans.
Unlike American politicians of both parties and rank-and-file libs such as recent GiovanniWorld trolls “Stephanie” and “ErG,” Mexicans have no difficulty figuring this out:
Amnesty for illegals will encourage even more illegal immigration!
Poll: Mexicans Say Amnesty Would Increase Illegal Immigration
Mexicans also Feel Mexican-Americans Should Be Loyal to
WASHINGTON (October 14, 2009) – A new survey by Zogby International finds that people in Mexico think that granting legal status to illegal immigrants would encourage more illegal immigration to the United States.
As the top immigrant-sending country for both legal and illegal immigrants, views on immigration in Mexico can provide insight into the likely impact of an amnesty, as well as other questions related to immigration.
Among the findings:
- A clear majority of people in Mexico, 56%, thought giving legal status to illegal immigrants in the United States would make it more likely that people they know would go to the United States illegally. Just 17% thought it would make Mexicans less likely to go illegally. The rest were unsure or thought it would make no difference.
- Of Mexicans with a member of their immediate household in the United States, 65%t said a legalization program would make people they know more likely to go to America illegally.
- Two-thirds of Mexicans know someone living in the United States; one-third said an immediate member of their household was living in the United States.
- Interest in going to the United States remains strong even in the current recession, with 36% of Mexicans (39 million people) saying they would move to the United States if they could. This is consistent with a recent Pew Research Center poll which found that about one-third of Mexicans would go to the United States if they could. At present, 12 to 13 million Mexico-born people live in the United States.
- An overwhelming majority (69%) thought that the primary loyalty of Mexican-Americans (Mexico- and U.S.-born) should be to Mexico. Just 20% said it should be to the United States. The rest were unsure.
- Also, 69% of people in Mexico felt that the Mexican government should represent the interests of Mexican-Americans (Mexico- and U.S.-born) in the United States.
- A plurality, 39%, of Mexicans thought that in the last year fewer people they know had gone to the United States as illegal immigrants compared to previous years. Only 27% thought more had gone. The rest thought it had stayed the same or were unsure.
- A plurality, 40%, also thought that in the last year more of the illegal immigrants they know had returned to Mexico compared to previous years. Only 25% thought the number returning had fallen. The rest thought it had stayed the same or were unsure.
- Both the bad economy and increased immigration enforcement were cited as reasons fewer people were going to America as illegal immigrants and more were coming back to Mexico.
