Hispanic support for Prop 200 wasn't a surprise

Document Actions
Your small mention of Proposition 200 in Arizona was misleading (HCN, 11/22/04: Racetrack). Just to set the record straight, the proposition only covers state welfare benefits under our Title 46 and does not apply to federally mandated public benefits such as schooling or emergency health care. And since 4,000 illegal immigrants a day cross just our border alone, it’s not surprising or "schizophrenic" that an estimated 47 percent of Hispanics voted for the measure.
