Chavez is really a one-trick pony on this subject.
As Lawrence Auster has written at View From the Right (http://www.amnation.com/vfr/archives/023757.html ):
“If it is the case that Hispanics demand that America legalize all Hispanic illegal aliens and make such support their condition for voting for a party, then it is not true that Hispanics are assimilating into America as loyal Americans. Rather, they are mainly interested in enlarging and empowering their own ethnic group at the expense of America and its rule of law. In that case why should their wishes be respected?”
