    During an Arizona speech delivered in Spanish, Sen. Tim Kaine cheered the demographic transformation of the United States caused by the nation’s federal immigration policies, telling his Latino audience on Thursday, “You are the future of America.” “By 2050, communities of color will represent the majority of our population,” Kaine said. “So, of course, Latinos will help shape the future of America because you are the future of America.” As the Pew Research Center has documented, this demographic transformation is largely the result of the changes to visa issuance policies enacted into law in 1965 that lifted the immigration controls...

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton says she would create a new office of Immigrant Affairs in the White House to help her achieve her goal of comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship. Speaking to a joint gathering of black and hispanic journalists on Friday, Clinton said she would start working on immigration reform “immediately” if she wins in November. “I will defend DACA and DAPA while I work vigorously for immigration reform,” Clinton said. “I have proposed an Office of Immigrant Affairs for the White House so that we are able to answer questions and provide information and...

    Top Republican officials and donors are increasingly worried about the threat Donald Trump's attack on a judge's Mexican heritage could pose to their party's chances in November -- and about the GOP's ability to win Latino votes for many elections to come. Trump is under fire for repeatedly accusing U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is overseeing a lawsuit involving Trump University, of bias because of his Mexican heritage. Those concerns intensified Sunday after Trump said he would have the same concerns about the impartiality of a Muslim judge.
  • Civil Rights Group Says Park Rangers’ Uniforms Are ‘Threatening’ to Latinos for Absurd Reason

    A coalition of lawmakers and civil rights groups has a message for the National Park Service: your uniforms and vehicles are “very threatening” to Latinos. Maite Arce of the Hispanic Access Foundation delivered the “really tough” message during a press conference on Thursday: “It’s such a shame that something as simple as the uniform and it’s similarity to the border patrol’s uniform — in the coloring — could be very threatening to certain segments of the Latino population. So a discussion about that is going to be really tough.” The coalition made multiple recommendations to the Park Service, including: Assess...

    As the influx of unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors from Central America has increased, so too has the cost to assist each migrant, according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies. CIS reveals that the cost per “unaccompanied alien child” has more than doubled since FY 2010, when the cost per UAC was $8,217. CIS projects that the cost in FY 2017 will reach $17,613. CIS senior researcher Nayla Rush, the author of the report, reached the cost per UAC by looking at the total budget requests for UACs in FY 2017 and the number of UACs expected...

    GREENFIELD, Ind. — At a campaign stop just days before the critical Indiana primary, Heidi Cruz, wife of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, said one of her husband's strengths in the campaign is that he "is an immigrant." "Ted is an immigrant," Mrs. Cruz said, emphasizing the word "is." "He is Hispanic."

    Hillary Clinton got side-eyed after blasting Jennifer Lopez's "Let's Get Loud" at a campaign stop in San Antonio where she called herself "La Hillary" and "Tu Hillary." Jeb Bush earned eye rolls after debuting a Spanish-language ad celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Both were accused of "Hispandering": a mashup of "Hispanic" and "pandering" that means faking interest in Hispanic issues and culture for self-serving reasons. So, what counts as Hispandering, and what doesn't? Who decides? Since Latinos are the largest minority group in the U.S., and, as you may have heard, Hispanic voters have the numbers to move the needle in...

In the interview, he talked about his immigration policies, his thoughts on Donald Trump and Cuba, and his home life and family.

    Examiner ^ | 7/28/15 | Joe Newby
    While speaking at a majority Hispanic church in Orlando, Florida, on Monday, former governor and current GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush said that a path to citizenship for those in the country illegally must happen. Moreover, Tampa Bay Times political editor Adam Smith reported on Twitter, Bush said the idea of self deportation or the idea of rounding up people in the country illegally is "not an American value." MyNews13 reporter Caroline Rowland said Bush spoke to "about 100 local pastors" at the mostly Latino church. The first five minutes, she added, were focused on his Christian faith. A number...

    Jeb Bush hasn't campaigned for himself in this part of Florida since 2002, but on Monday, he will return here to reconnect with former supporters and make an overt appeal to the region's fast-growing Latino population. In a first as a presidential candidate, the Republican plans to sit for a Spanish-language interview with a Telemundo news anchor. He will meet with dozens of mostly Hispanic evangelical pastors at a mega-church, visit a small business owned by a Mexican immigrant and try to introduce himself to the hundreds of thousands of people who have moved to this transient region in the...

    When former President Bill Clinton takes center stage at Univision’s upfront presentation Tuesday, it will mark more than just one of his many paid appearances. The relationship between the Clintons and Univision is deep — from owner Haim Saban’s unabashed support for Hillary Clinton’s election effort to a partnership between Univision and the Clinton Foundation, to the network’s newscasts that have bashed Republicans and, most recently, praised Hillary’s new position on immigration — putting her squarely in line with the network’s stance on the issue. Univision and the Clinton Foundation joined forces in 2014 for a multi-year early childhood initiative...

    Alfredo Padilla grew up in Texas as a migrant farmworker who followed the harvest with his parents to pick sugar beets in Minnesota each summer. He has not forgotten the aches of labor or how much the weather — too little rain, or too much — affected the family livelihood. Now an insurance lawyer in Carrizo Springs, Tex., he said he was concerned about global warming. “It’s obviously happening, the flooding, the record droughts,” said Mr. Padilla, who agrees with the science that human activities are the leading cause of climate change. “And all this affects poor people harder.

    As Central Texas leaders of the League of United Latin American Citizens make plans for a January education summit, they have an unlikely partner: Republican U.S. Sen. John Cornyn. LULAC, the Hispanic civil rights group, has long clashed with Cornyn on issues, from health care to immigration. But they say they have found common ground on education. “It’s very unusual,” LULAC Central Texas District Director Gavino Fernandez Jr. said of the partnership. Typically, Republicans “don’t reach out," he said. "They stay away from our community.” That’s changing as Republicans eyeing the state’s shifting demographics increasingly invest in reaching Hispanics, African-Americans...

    San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro faced kid glove treatment from the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Development Committee, Tuesday, with questions mostly focused on what his plans might be and his position on GSE reform should he take over the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The next step is a vote before the committee, which is not scheduled, which would be followed by a vote on the full Senate floor. Castro was tapped by the White House to replaced outgoing HUD secretary Shaun Donovan, despite the fact that Castro has little executive experience and a controversial history mismanaging HUD...

    Sen. John Cornyn is the Senate’s No. 2-ranking Republican. But Tuesday morning he preferred the role of No. 1 Texan. Cornyn gave a Lone Star State welcome to Julian Castro, introducing the San Antonio mayor at the start of his confirmation hearing before the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee for the post of Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. President Barack Obama tapped Castro, a Democrat now serving his third term, on May 23 to oversee the department. Cornyn has said that he does not expect any opposition to Castro’s confirmation, and his move to introduce Castro hints...

    The son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is campaigning to persuade Hispanic voters to support him and the Republican Party. According to The Wall Street Journal, George P. Bush, who is also the nephew of former President George W. Bush and son of a Mexican mother, is running for Texas land commissioner in next month's primary. He says he feels a "moral imperative" to reach out to the Hispanic community, which he believes shares many values with Republicans, including a business mindset and a conservative approach to social issues. "We can't complain as a community unless we register to...

    George P. Bush Is Pitching Fellow Hispanics on Why They Should Consider Voting Republican As he barnstormed south Texas by bus last week, George P. Bush wasn't just selling himself as a Republican candidate for statewide office, but pitching fellow Hispanics—his mother was born in Mexico—on why they should consider voting for the Grand Old Party. Speaking before hundreds of residents in a school auditorium here on the Mexican border, the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and nephew of former President George W. Bush mixed English and Spanish as he urged Hispanics to vote for him and, more...
