Of course, I don't want the organizers to get in trouble for violating City of Houston Fire Codes, so let's say 6,081 attended this amazing Ethnic Studies Class in Downtown Houston.
If you're worried about the growing political strength of people of color, which is happening in large part because of a rapidly growing Latino population, then you might be motivated to do what you can to stop immigration reform.
"A historic number...record increase...startling phenomenon." These were some of the words that accompanied recent news articles about increases in the number of Hispanic children in foster care in the United States. The increases are real.
It recently came to my attention, that throughout the nation, young men and women who are Latino are, unfortunately, caught on the wrong side of the digital divide.
The politics of immigration reform are already messy, and they're just going to get messier. The hurdles are going to get a lot higher, and a lot harder to clear. Whether they can be cleared or not may depend on the final tally the bill gets in the Senate floor vote.

The Heritage Foundation is "a public policy think tank that promotes the principles that made America great: free enterprise, limited government, indi...
Like many generations of immigrants before them, Latinos are making their mark on our social and economic landscape. The recent presidential election is a clear case in point. For Latinos, the next big frontier is the college campus.
