1. Immigration is not the most important issue when we vote.
While many Latinos have a familial connection to immigration, which influences their political position on the issue, immigration is not the most important voting issue. Education is the most important issues for Latino voters, then the economy, then healthcare, and then immigration.
2. Most Latinos are not undocumented immigrants, but American-born citizens (and millennials!)
Nearly half of all Latino voters in the U.S. are millennials. They make up 44% of eligible Latino voters. This is important because these Latino voters are not immigrants. They are native-born, and are increasingly comfortable in a bilingual and bicultural world.
