Take action now:

30% of Mexicans think U.S. was behind 9/11 attacks (second highest behind Turkey)

A recent World Public Opinion survey (link) shows that 30% of Mexicans think the United States was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the second highest percentage in the entire survey, just behind Turkey at 36%. 33% said it was al Qaeda, 1% Israel, and 37% were Other or Don't Know.

See also the Zogby poll in which 58% of Mexicans said that the U.S. Southwest rightfully belongs to Mexico.

See also another poll showing that only 36% of Mexicans view Americans favorably, only 26% think Americans are hard-working, 73% see Americans as racist, and only 16% see Americans as honest.

Obviously, these are the types of polls that "liberals" and other corrupt supporters of illegal and/or massive immigration would prefer to ignore. In fact, one "liberal" was kind enough to give us a glimpse into his thought processes, such as they are. Over to Ilya Somin (volokh . com/archives/ archive_2008_09_14-2008_09_20.shtml#1221685992):
Obviously, I know that there is anti-Americanism in Mexico and that Mexicans have various historical grievances against the US government, some of them legitimate. At the same time, Mexico derives many benefits from its relationship with the US, including extensive trade, and remittances from the large Mexican immigrant population in this country. Certainly, I didn't expect this level of anti-American prejudice in Mexican public opinion on 9/11.

I strongly support free trade with Mexico and continued Mexican immigration and decry the recent nativist attacks on Mexican and other Hispanic immigrants. A positive relationship between the US and Mexico is, I think, very much in the interests of both countries. Before writing this post, I even wondered whether I should avoid highlighting the Mexican data, so as not to give more fodder to opponents of NAFTA and advocates of draconian restrictions on immigration.
Although I think that Somin would consider even Barbara Jordan's recommendations "draconian", regarding the rest it's too late.

How doesd a immigrant from Russia, a consitutional law professor no less, fail to make the distinction between legal and illegal "immigrants?" What a jackass.
