Numbers are up especially in favor of candidates like Ron Paul.

Votes are not up for Obama.

They know Obama is not going to get the Hispanic vote so of course they are trying to say this.

Could the reason be because some of the illegals have been deported? ;)

Chicago recently reported that the number of residents that are registered voters is at an all time low.
Maybe Chicago isn't corrupt, maybe they are all just stupid?
When you in declare yourself a sanctuary for criminals most of who are illegal invaders, how can they be suprised that the illegal invaders can't register to vote?

Chicago is a sanctuary city, so hopefully the illegals have left. Chicago was credited with being the most corrupt city in America, and one of the most violent, esp. for young people. Seems illegal Chicago residents like to kill each other. Guess you can't build a good successful city on illegal activity and corruption.

Anyone born other than the native americans who were here originally are immigrants. Who are u people to judge the Mexicans. AND this immigration issue spans across India Asia Canada etc why is the focus on Mexicans. U people love to hate. It's sad. I hope more Latinos choose to join with the minorities esp the African Americans to fight this blatant racism.

I can understand why Hispanics registrations might be down.

The Republicans promised Comprehensive Immigration under Bush.
The Democrats promised Comprehensive Immigration under Obama.

It still hasn't happened.

What is a poor Hispanic voter to do? He does what most of the citizens of the U.S. does. He decides voting is useless and doesn't get involved.

You are another "deflector" trying to direct the avenue of debate. What's sad is that you cant stand on your own feet. You always have to unite or join. Now that's sad. Go ahead on down to Southside and butt in with your rhetoric with the Blacks. I doubt you'll make national news.

Get over yourself...even the "native Americans" migrated from another place...it has nothing to do with race or ethnicity, it has to do with this being a soveriegn country with specific immigration laws in place that are being violated mainly by those who sneak in mainly from Mexico and other South American countries as well as from other countries. They have not complied with our laws and as a result of their refusal to abide by them, should be removed as the laws dictate.

Politicians can promise illegal aliens anything they want. The American people by an overwhelming majority do not want illegal aliensin the country.
The government may very well fall. The number of traitors is almost at the point where the American people will step in and return the government to the people.
People are not arming themselves to just let this corruption to continue.
Obama, Holder and the leftists are pushing for a confrontation. Just ask NBC.

When the Latinos put Obama into the White House for another 4 years, Obama should paint the White House Black and add Martin Luther King Jr to Mt Rushmore.

could that be because many were voting fraudulantly? and are afraid of the ID issues?? perhaps this next election will be honestly and truthfully won by a sincere, patriotic, all American born (no questionable birth issue-status) and deserving indivual??

Not true.

When Native born Americans held the Revolution they bought by blood the country and the Continental Army was made up of native born colonists, NOT IMMIGRANTS. The smallpox vaccination records prove that.

We are the legal owners of the country now and it is for US and US alone to decide who comes to this country. You cannot have sovereignty as a country without that. My ancestors did not put their lives on the line for "immigrants". They put their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor on the line to obtain liberty for themselves and their posterity. They then chose to allow a limited number of immigrants (who failed to alter or abolish their bad governements on their own so they tucked their tails between their legs and came here) and for the most part assimilated into being like their native brethren.

American Patriots don't hate Mexicans, but they do despise ILLEGAL ALIENS, a great number of whom if not most of whom ARE Mexican due to the ease of breaking in across the world's least defended problem border.

Mexicans and Hispanics don't help to earn respect for themselves when their so called leaders are more interested in bringing more of them in whether legal or not just to increase their own crooked power base. When Mexicans and Hispanics in general appear to be more intersted in their former countrymen than their supposed NEW contrymen, there is no reason to have any respect for them. After all my ancestors put bullets into their ancestors to create America.

The other groups mentioned just do not have anywhere near as high a percentage of illegals as the Mexicans do. When they do and if they act as the Mexicans/Hispanics seem to have acted if you listen to the so called leaders (non assimilation, support for illegal aliens over unemployed Americans, no respect for our immigration and other laws), they too will get the same reaction of disgust from Americans.

The racism excuse is shown to be BS. It is just another tired Libtard line to parrot when they don't have any truth behind them.

If you love Mexicans so much why don't you just move there to be among those you love?

Or how about any one of the other 20 Hispanic countries in this hemisphere- all without racism? Run to them and live there racism free forever since that is so important to you. I will help you pack!
