Mexicans Have Lower Opinion of Americans Because of Arizona Law, Survey Says -- But Older Poll Complicates Issue

A Pew Research Center poll claims that Mexicans look less favorably on Americans since the passage of SB 1070, a stat used today by the Christian Science Monitor to thread an article on immigration.

Just one problem: It took us about a minute to find another poll that shows Mexican attitudes toward Americans stil arel higher than they were five years ago.

If both polls are accurate, Mexicans' opinions about the United States appear to have swung wildly over the last few years.

The Monitor article states that:
Prior to the enactment of the Arizona's controversial SB 1070 one year ago, 62 percent of Mexicans had a positive opinion of the US, compared with 44 percent after the law passed, according to the Pew Research Center.

Arizona apparently has caused Mexicans to take a dimmer view of the entire country. But hold on -- a 2006 Zogby poll of more than 2,000 people in both Mexico and the United States found that "just 36 percent of Mexicans have a favorable opinion of Americans," according to an article in the Washington Times. (The older poll also reportedly showed that while most Mexicans think Americans are dishonest, lazy, thieving racists, Americans think Mexicans are pretty cool.)

To recap, most Mexicans thought Americans sucked in 2006. A few years later, something changed and nearly twice as many Mexicans liked us as in 2006. Then Arizona passed SB 1070, and a majority of Mexicans went back to disliking Americans -- but not as big of a majority as before.

Whatever Mexicans think of Americans, at least Arizona won't be the only one responsible for declining attitudes. The Monitor article notes that four other states -- Georgia, Florida, Alabama and South Carolina -- are preparing to adopt tough, new anti-illegal-immigrant laws.

This to inform you of a person living and working in the United States illegally. The names that this person assumes are as follows: Gabriela Sanchez (her niece), Karla P.

Peoria Ave # A-100   Phoenix, AZ 85029Her assumed Social Security # is her Aunt's Soc. Sec. # 611-32-7757 (Karla P.

I am very concerned about the illegal activities (Document Fraud, Identity Theft, Conducting crimes in America) that she is involved in. Please address the above issues as soon as possible.

The total U.S. aid to Mexico in 2010 - both military/police and economic/social aid - adds up to over $800 million: the second-largest one-year amount ever appropriated by Congress to a single Latin American country.

For THAT amount of FREE money, Mexico should be kissing our asses. Makes you wonder why a guy like Ray Stern would stoop so low as to even write an Article like this.

Phoenix, Arizona is a real shithole. All it has to offer its residents is more of the same hell. One thing I really don't understand is when God created the world, why some people chose to live in the desert of all the places. I think it's time to re-locate!

Then you have the dumb asses that invested in pigeon coops in Rocky point that keep telling everyone that Phoenix has more crime then Rocky Point…you think? Phoenix has over a million people and that shit hole only has about 25k. Then you have the loud mouth cunt that sells insurance and acts like she’s your friend but will throw you under the bus in a heartbeat because she’s a Mexican and Mexicans and Mexico are a land of great people, if it’s so great then keep your family in your own country and that way our cops won’t have to beat your mother down because of her big mouth. That’s what I love about being an American, cops don’t care what color you are, if you give them crap you’re going to get beat down. In Mexico if you need a cop good luck unless you have cash and if it’s American money even better. So at least the cops in Mexico still think we are great and so is our money, just like the wets that sell you the Mexican insurance.

It's the media that conducts these polls. They have an agenda. You don't know if the results are accurate or not. They may not have conducted a poll at all. The last time I looked it wasn't the people that write the laws. The legislature doesn't pass anything that the people want or need. They only pass laws that will harm the people or make money for corporations and the rich or in the end take away more of our rights. Their laws never benefit us, just them. What good does it do to conduct a poll like this anyway? It increases hate among the people regardless of race. They keep us divided so we can be controlled. Remember that song lyric? United we stand, divided we fall. This is all instigated by the world's elite. Watch with your eyes open.

Wait, does anyone really car what Mexicans think of us? I mean have you seen Mexico recently. I find it hilarious that anyone would think that Mexicans' view of others is even relevant.

I agree with Alehound that being an American is indeed the best thing in the world.

Now I know why I don't feel any sympathy towards undocumented Mexicans. They are useless criminals.

I also suggest rounding up the undocumented Mexicans in the U.S. and putting their sorry useless brown asses to work securing the border, and doing it quickly.................
