It is anyone's fault? Maybe, maybe not. But one thing is for sure, despite their use of immigration reform and border security as issues to galvanize their bases and try to pull independent voters to their campaigns, neither President Obama or Governor Romney have made much of the 800 lb. gorilla in the room.

About the artist:

Lalo Alcaraz is perhaps the most prolific Chicano artist in the nation, according to his own bio. Lalo has been busy for over two decades chronicling the political ascendancy of Latinos in America and vigorously pushing the boundaries of Chicano art in the Post Chicano Art Era.

An award-winning journalist and illustrator, Lalo is also an author, faculty member at Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles, and radio host. He is also the creator of the first nationally-syndicated, politically-themed Latino daily comic strip, “La Cucaracha.”

Lalo’s most recent project is a re-boot of the famed, his pioneering humor, satire and cerveza webzine/blog/news site.
