Some interesting facts about Latinos and Arizona's new immigration law

(1) Sixty-four percent of the American public supports Arizona's new immigration law.

(2) Only 20% of non-Hispanics oppose the new law.

(3) In the 2008 Presidential Election, according to the Census Bureau survey, non-Hispanics cast 92.6% of the vote.

(4) In highly diverse public high schools in California, it usually becomes quickly apparent to students that average school performance typically follows a remarkably common hierarchy: Asians, then whites, then English-speaking Latinos, then blacks, and finally non-English speaking Latinos. At Live Oak, whites average 799 on California’s API scale, while Hispanics average 622.
