Poll: Immigration a low priority for Hispanics

As one partial explanation of the surprising result, Pew notes that the Hispanic community has an especially large percentage of young people—fully a third are under 18. This goes a long way towards explaining this group’s focus on education.

A related and similarly interesting Pew survey, this time of Hispanics and Asian Americans, reveals that as far as immigration reform policy is a priority, those groups care more about stopping deportations than about opening up an easier path to citizenship.
