Immigration: Not Debated but Still ImportantPublished: Oct 16, 2012 8:00 am By: Erwin de Leon
"Interestingly, two reports reveal that immigration is not a top issue for immigrant communities as well.
The Pew Hispanic Center released a report Friday that rates education, jobs and the economy, and healthcare as the top three issues for registered Latino voters. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed said the issue of education is extremely important to them, followed by 54 percent who cited jobs and the economy, and 50 percent who cited healthcare.
Earlier this month, initial findings from the 2012 National Asian American Survey was rolled out which showed that the economy is also the most important issue for Asian Americans, followed by unemployment, health care, and education. Fifty-two percent of survey takers said the economy was the most important problem facing the country today. Close to 20 percent pointed to unemployment, five percent cited healthcare, and four percent cited education."
