    Report: Immigration raids taking a toll
    By LAURA TILLMAN/The Brownsville Herald

    BROWNSVILLE, TX — Latinos are starting to feel the effects of the rising number of immigration raids and increased public attention on undocumented immigrants in America, according to the Pew Hispanic Center.

    According to a new report from the center, more than half of Hispanic adults worry that they or someone they are close to may be deported.

    More than half of those surveyed said discrimination prevents Latinos from success in the United States., which Brownsville residents like Juana Maria Lerna find to be of greater concern than immigration issues.

    “Deportation has always been a problem,

    I think that illegals need to stop bullying us and start fighting for a better life in their countries. All blogs on illegal immigration and about Cubans making land that I have read in South Florida say the same thing.

    I would like to see some of these illegal immigrants who admit that their life here is so much better than it is in Mexico come out for some policy that prevents illegals from asking for any social service assistance. If their main point is that they are only here for jobs, (and not all the free goodies!), then come out against illegals requesting food stamps, healthcare, etc. But you never hear that! The taxpayers are upset most about the COST of these illegals--a cost that is threatening to ruin us. I am in California, and we are in serious trouble. Yet the sanctuary policy continues. If it was only about jobs, then there should be no outcry about proving your status when asking for welfare or foodstamps.

    There are a great many American of Mexican descent who are very upset with illegal immigration. They dislike it as much as we do.

    There are, however, far too many who have put ethnicity above being an American and have aided, protected or in other ways helped this to happen. They should have taken a stand against it when it first began and helped America.

    Surely, they realized, fairly or unfairly, if this got to the boiling point it is now, there would be some hispanics made uncomfortable. It is just human nature to look at someone who is a hispanic and wonder. It may not be right, but it's human.

    nntrixie you are correct. It is not only Mexicans but many other Hispanics feel the same way about illegals. In fact one former Marine came up with a group called Don't Speak for Us. It is a group of legal hispanic immigrants who are disguisted by illegals. They do have a website. Even in South Florida you will find hispanics who write on blogs agaisnst illegals. I think this has a lot to do about how people look at them now. They never thought of it before.
