2006 National Survey of Latinos: The Immigration Debate
MetadataShow full item record
Latinos are feeling more discriminated against, politically energized and unified following the immigration policy debate and the pro-immigration marches that have taken place. According to the 2006 National Survey of Latinos conducted by the Pew Hispanic Center, more than half (54%) of Latinos surveyed believe the debate has increased discrimination. Almost two-thirds (63%) think the pro-immigrant marches this year signal the beginning of a new and lasting social movement. And in marked contrast to prior surveys, a majority (58%) now believes Hispanics are working together to achieve common goals. This report analyzes the data from the survey.
