    A leading Latino political organization is launching its first-ever incumbent protection campaign, designed to prop up five Hispanic representatives who flipped formerly Republican districts. The Latino Victory Fund (LVF), which played an important role in fundraising and promoting the members in 2018, launched Wednesday the "Our Champions" campaign to protect the seats held by Democratic Reps. Gil Cisneros (Calif.), Mike Levin (Calif.), Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (Fla.), Xochitl Torres Small (N.M.) and Antonio Delgado (N.Y.). Mayra Macías, executive director of the Latino Victory Fund, called the five lawmakers "our community’s voice in Washington." "Now more than ever, we need their diverse backgrounds...

    Two of the five men convicted in the savage Bronx slaughter of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz showed no remorse during their sentencing Friday as they smirked for the camera and threw up Trinitarios gang signs. Jonaiki Martinez Estrella, 25, and Jose Muniz, 23, were pictured flashing the violent street gang’s signs for a Post photographer before Judge Robert Neary slammed them with hefty jail terms. The gesture which Estrella and Muniz made with their thumb, index finger, and middle finger extended, is the “seven points” sign of the ruthless Dominican gang, a police source told The Post. “I cant believe these...

    The Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) announced Tuesday it will push for aggressive expansion of access to higher education in the upcoming reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA). The CHC put out a list of priorities for higher education, including increasing college accessibility and affordability, support for teachers, oversight of the higher education system, and renewed support for Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) as well as diversity in education. Congress is expected to debate reauthorization of the HEA when it comes back from recess mid-October. The landmark law sets guidelines for how federal funding is distributed in higher education. The CHC's...

  • Are Hispanics Assimilating?

    "I also happen to believe that the Hispanics should work harder at assimilation. That’s one of the things I’ve been saying for a long time. You know, they ought not to be just codified in their communities but make sure that all their kids are learning to speak English, and that they feel comfortable in the communities. And that’s going to take outreach on both sides, frankly." Thus opined Tom Brokaw, NBC’s veteran news reporter and former anchorman, on “Meet the Press,” January 27, 2019. Brokaw’s tone wasn’t hostile when he said this; he spoke as if he were giving...

    The man who police say committed the deadly shooting spree in El Paso, Texas, is believed to have published an anti-immigrant manifesto minutes before the attack. Law enforcement officials said they were confident that an anti-immigrant screed posted online belongs to Patrick Wood Crusius, 21, who they said is responsible for Saturday’s mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso—leaving at least 20 dead and 26 wounded or injured. The nearly 2,400-word manifesto outlines reasons for launching the attack, breaking down the “political” and “economic” motivations. The entire diatribe argues that U.S. leaders—both Republicans and Democrats—are guilty of allowing unfettered...

    The Mexican government on Sunday demanded protections for Mexicans and Mexican-Americans living in the U.S. following the deadly shooting in El Paso, Texas. “We consider this an act of terrorism against the community of Mexico,” Secretary of Foreign Affairs Marcelo Ebrard said during a press conference, signaling that Mexico’s prosecutor might make that designation official. Designating the incident as an act of terrorism would “permit Mexico access to all the information related to the case,” and “let us evaluate whether there are other individuals involved or potentially involved” that could put Mexicans at risk, Ebrard explained. He also indicated that...

    Hispanic Americans are set to overtake African Americans as the second largest demographic group in the 2020 presidential election. That is bad news for Democrats, who are convinced they are entitled to these millions of voters. They cannot understand why so many Latinos, especially in important battleground states such as Florida, continue to line up firmly behind President Trump. The thought terrifies them. Even more frightening for Democrats is the ineffectiveness of their main “outreach” strategy: extol the virtues of illegal immigration and speak in Spanish. As President Trump has pointed out, Hispanic Americans are no more enamored with a...

    President Donald Trump made a series of false statements in an interview that aired Thursday on Spanish-language network Telemundo. Most notably, Trump repeatedly claimed that he had "inherited" an Obama-era policy of separating migrant children from their parents. In fact, he instituted the policy. Family separationTrump said former president Barack Obama had left him a family separation policy. "When I became president, President Obama had a separation policy," Trump said. "I didn't have it. He had it. I brought the families together. I'm the one that put 'em together." Interviewer José Díaz-Balart challenged Trump on the assertion, pointing out that...

    I'm so old I can remember when disseminating communist propaganda in public schools was frowned upon. Last Friday afternoon, I was sitting at my computer when I received an email from Peachjar. This is a service used by several school districts near me in the Portland area that sends home digital fliers to parents in lieu of paper fliers to advertise extracurricular activities sponsored by various groups in the community. My son's middle school uses this service, and I receive a few emails a month from them. I've used the service myself to send advertisements for recruiting events for Scouts,...
  • The Roberts Court Is Considering the Legal Reasoning of Jim Crow to Uphold a Rigged Census (barf)

    There’s an odious Supreme Court case from 1971, Palmer v. Thompson, that most people don’t remember and that most who do remember wish they could forget. It’s a relic of a bygone era—one of the last pieces of the Jim Crow system that the Supreme Court ever sustained. On our current Supreme Court, Palmer v. Thompson looks to be having a moment. Its reasoning stealthily drove last year’s decision in Trump v. Hawaii, in which the court’s five-justice conservative majority upheld the travel restrictions that the president had planned during the campaign to be a “Muslim ban.” And this week’s...

    Justice Sonia Sotomayor said Tuesday that Hispanics may have a “rational fear” of their answers to the census being misused by the Trump administration, as she argued against including a question about citizenship in the 2020 count. The Supreme Court heard oral argument on the thorny question, with the liberal justices saying they feared millions of people — Hispanics in particular — will toss the forms into the trash rather than fill them out, distorting the entire 2020 count. “Are you sure they don’t have a rational fear?” Justice Sotomayor challenged the government’s lawyer. The government said the question has...
  • Hispanics Rally to Trump, Boosting His 2020 Chances (McLaughlin + Marist/NPR polls)

    Get ready for the anti-Trump “resistance” to go truly loco, because new polling data indicates Hispanic support for the president is swelling, a trend that could seal his 2020 re-election victory. ....So much good news erupted last week for the president with the conclusion of the Mueller inquiry that stunning new polling data was largely glossed over. McLaughlin & Associates revealed that Hispanic approval for Trump in March jumped to 50%. This number matched the January Marist/NPR/PBS survey that shocked cynics with its own 50% approval finding. Even if those polls are too aggressive, February’s Morning Consult/Politico poll showed Trump’s...

    After President Donald Trump ended the government shutdown, his support among key groups is on the rise. A new poll from Zogby Analytics published on Thursday — “remarkable” according to The Washington Examiner — shows that Trump has significant support from suburban women despite the left’s constant screeching about the president’s “sexism.” Pollster Jonathan Zogby reported that Trump “is doing very well with suburban women (50% approve/50% disapprove), who are vital to his re-election hopes in 2020.” And that could be because suburban women are some of the biggest proponents of Trump’s border wall, which he plans to build by...

    House Democratic leaders are expanding the roster for the chamber’s coveted tax-writing panel after outcry from lawmakers about the lack of Hispanic representation on the committee. Rep. Jimmy Gomez, a second-term Democrat from California, was tapped to join the ranks of the Ways and Means Committee on Monday night, nearly a week after leadership announced the Democratic slate for the panel. The move comes after multiple Democrats voiced alarm about the lack of Latinos on Ways and Means, one of the most sought-after committees in the House. Without the addition of Gomez, Rep. Linda Sánchez (D-Calif.) would have been the...

    On a sunny, cold Sunday in November, Victoria Laverde walked up to an information table at Plaza Las Americas in Lilburn and asked for federal help in signing up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. It’s exactly what officials under the Trump administration hoped would happen when they made big changes to funding for ACA navigation. The government has made news as it stripped down the grant money, reducing Georgia’s enrollment navigator funding to $499,995, down from $1.4 million last year and $3.7 million in 2016. It’s virtually eliminated advertising, and it fired the major statewide nonprofits that...

    In a recent interview with the Spanish media outlet El Intermedio, Univision's senior news anchor, Jorge Ramos, was completely upfront in revealing his disdain for the sizeable segment of U.S. Latinos who vote for Republicans, including for Donald Trump. When El Intermedio correspondent Guillermo Fesser asked Ramos to explain how it is possible that Republicans nationally consistently capture about a third of the Latino electorate (and in a prime battleground state like Florida, significantly more) Ramos candidly responded that these are the Latino voters who (evidently unlike himself, and Democrat voters) are "totally identified" with the United States, and who...

    The U.S. Border Patrol cancelled a scheduled "crowd control" exercise Tuesday at a port of entry in a Hispanic neighborhood of El Paso, Texas, amid concerns over the drill's timing on Election Day. The exercise was scheduled as part of a "mobile field force demonstration" ahead of the potential arrival of Central American migrant "caravans." But the timing and relative proximity to polling stations drew the ire of civil rights activists and Democrats, who accused the Border Patrol of voter intimidation. A Border Patrol representative told The Hill that the exercise had been postponed "out of an abundance of caution...

    Latinos and Hispanics, legally here in the U.S. are speaking out against the caravan heading north from Honduras to the U.S. That was the report from Univision, which is hardly a conservative news site. According to the Daily Caller, they're saying things like this: “How is it possible that a caravan from Central America is on it’s way to the U.S. and the people are speaking the way they’re speaking, demanding to get in. No sir, this isn’t their country and they need to respect it,” one man said. Another woman told Megid, “like the president says, they can...
