A new comprehensive Pew Hispanic survey found 71% of Latinos favor photo ID laws and 97% of all registered Hispanic voters say they “are confident they have the identification needed to vote on election day.”

Nationally, 77% of Americans support photo ID laws, so Latinos do not differ much from the population at large in their support of photo ID laws.

According to Pew, Latinos make up 15% of eligible voters in the 11 states that have photo ID laws: Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, New Hampshire, South Dakota and Tennessee.

And while the mainstream media tries to claim photo ID laws are being used as discriminatory weapons to burden minorities, 95% of Latinos surveyed in these 11 states said they “are confident they have the identification they will need to vote on election day.”

Pew surveyed 1,765 Latinos from September 7 through October 4. The survey’s margin of error is +/- 3.2%.

    I live in an area that has illegals. On my short block of approximately 15 homes, we have 4 homes with illegals living there. There are 700 homes here…so you do the math!
    When the illegals came in by the droves about 6 years ago, all of the Illegals here were begging the management in the community to STOP THEM…They “are criminals”.

    That surprised me…when they “themselves” were illegals.
