Conservative Hispanics and immigration

According to the Dallas News, a new poll show that "more than half of Texas Hispanics call themselves conservative."

Call me cynical, but my guess is that if a significant majority of Hispanics began voting Republican, Democratic politicians would begin taking a much stronger stance against illegal immigration.

My view on immigration is, figuratively speaking, to build a very high wall with a very wide gate. In other words, take very strong action to prevent illegal immigration, but make legal immigration much more possible for those who share American ideals embodied in the Bill of Rights.

Those who do not share those ideals--like many who take the Qur'an seriously--have no business being allowed to immigrate to this country.
