Indulge me for a moment as I take you back to Tim Burton's 2001 installment of Planet of the Apes, the sixth film in the movie's franchise starring Ma...
Our community is rapidly emerging as change agents on these issues, in addition to the policy areas where Latinos are best known for making their mark -- in immigration, labor and civil rights.
For many Latino voters, the partisan politics surrounding the U.S. v. Texas case reinforce the diverging paths that the parties are taking with respect to immigration.
On June 7, 2016 Kamala Harris and Loretta Sanchez made history. In November, California will see the first ever U.S. Senate general election match-up between two Democrats. Not only two Democrats but two high-profile women of color, ensuring that a minority woman will succeed Barbara Boxer as a U.S. Senator from California in 2017.
There is nothing more American than our vote. There is too much to lose if we don't show up. I don't want someone else deciding if my loved one gets to sleep soundly at night without fear of deportation or how a Latina makes decisions for her future and her body. Do you?
One poll exists from New Mexico, but it is really too old to be very informative. Back in late February, Clinton was up over Sanders by 14 points (47 to 33 percent). That's not much to go on now, though.
"They still call it the White House But that's a temporary condition, too. Can you dig it, cc?"--Parliament "Chocolate City" In 1975, George Clinton ...
Six years after its passage on a party-line vote, the Affordable Care Act remains controversial. However, six months before the Nov. 8 presidential election, expansion of Medicaid could become a pivotal issue among an important and growing voting bloc: Latinos.
We take another look at the 2016 election and explore the Latino identity of Ted Cruz, why there's a generation gap with Latinos and report on Hillary Clinton's relationship with a coup in Honduras. We also talk with residents of the Virgin Islands, who can't vote in general elections, and a newly naturalized citizen taking part in the voting process for the first time.
Our immigrant communities have rightfully earned dignity and respect through years of hard labor without any relief. Miami is a cosmopolitan city. The immigrants that make up the spine of this multicultural metropolis will not tolerate hateful rhetoric that characterizes us as rapists, killers and thieves.
At the moment, Hilary Clinton is favored to defeat Bernie Sanders in California's June 7th Democratic Primary. To win, Sanders will have to woo "no party preference" voters as well as Hispanics and women.
Lately, Ed Blum's name has been everywhere. At least, when it comes to Supreme Court cases. Whether it is affirmative action, voting rights, or redistricting, Blum has been leading a well-funded effort to limit who has representation in our democracy.
It is time to acknowledge that the Left is not prepared for a fight. The Right is ready. I believe we should use whatever we can to defend ourselves. Because defeating Trump will not be the end. Tragically, it will only be the beginning. It is time we prepare ourselves for it. By any means necessary.
It's up to all of us to ensure the integrity of our voting process by getting registered, speaking up against voter ID laws and the attack on voting rights, and encouraging everyone to vote, regardless of ethnicity or gender.
Your article on Bernie Sanders came as such a surprise to me -- that the same woman who has made it her life's mission to speak the truth and shed light on corruption, lies, and false narratives created by the corporate elite and special interest groups, would now suddenly create a narrative that distorts facts and misguides American voters.
I'm the first to say that it's impossible to identify us all by sight since we all come in different shades and styles, but that Latino vibe was missing - especially considering it was hosted in a city that has a vibrant Latino population, accounting for nearly 40 percent.
