LEGAL Immigrants: Stop Deportation of Undocumenteds

We have often heard that Latinos in the US who are here LEGALLY, are opposed to the ILLEGAL immigrants, and that the legal ones would like to see the illegal group sent back home.  One might argue that this would take the heat off of the legals - mostly latinos in this case.

However, according to recent polls, it seems that there is a much stronger support for the newly arrived migrants than previously thought.  It appears that blood is thicker than water.... or "Dios los crea, y ellos se juntan."  When Latino voters (legal, US Citizens of latino origin) were asked what they want to see happen with undocumented immigrants:

66% would support an executive order from the president to stop the deportation of undocumented immigrants who are minors or of college age and have a clean, crime-free record. This support is consistent among Latinos of all ideologies, origins and political affiliations, including 54% of Republicans.
