Latino and Asian Voters Favored Immigrant-friendly Candidates

World Journal, Posted: Dec 07, 2008

NEW YORK The Immigration Policy Center published a study Thursday that analyzes data on the Asian, Latino and New American vote, reflecting the greatest areas of concern for these voters. The study found, reports the World Journal, that 67 percent Latinos and 62 percent of Asians voted for Obama, and 24 percent of Asian Republicans voted for Obama this year. According to the IPCs analysis of early, exit and election-day polling, the report suggests Latino and Asian voters prefer a candidate whos friendly to immigrants. About 70 percent of Latinos and 46 percent of Asians view policies of the Republican Party as unfriendly to immigrants. Around 25 percent Asian voters said they favor legalization of undocumented immigrants status, and 38 percent of them want to shorten the time for legal immigrants to apply for a green card. The report shows that Latino and Asian voters want to send the following message: they say no to politicians who are against immigration and have gained power as a voting bloc to make a difference.
