    MADISON, Wis. - Billed as "A Day Without Latinos," Thursday's demonstrations at the Capitol were marked by passionate speeches, plenty of hyperbole, and a lot of fractured facts to count. The rally against legislation that Latinos believe to be anti-immigrant drew some 20,000 demonstrators in and around the Capitol grounds, according to Madison police. Many of the protesters were bused in by rally organizers, principally the left-wing Voces de la Frontera. State Rep. Melissa Sargent, D-Madison, called the demonstrations a "beautiful celebration of who we are as a state," and that Wisconsin must "value and celebrate the diversity of the...

    Voces, as it is commonly called, is one of several groups that filed a lawsuit against Wisconsins newly passed voter ID law which requires voters to show a photo ID to confirm identity when they go to the polls. The lawsuit they filed successfully led to the law being suspended by a Dane County court. Members of the Wisconsin Supreme Court have refused to hear the voter ID case before the November 6th election. This means that Wisconsin, a state known for examples of voter fraud, will not be protected by a piece of legislation that mirrors similar election integrity...

    Madison -- The Court of Appeals declined to take up a Dane County case Wednesday that blocked the state's new law requiring people to show photo ID at the polls. The latest order is a further setback for those who support the voter ID law, and is another sign the law almost surely will remain halted for the May 8 primaries and June 5 recall elections. Dane County Circuit Judge David Flanagan temporarily enjoined the voter ID law last month, saying the Milwaukee branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and immigrant rights group Voces de...

"We want to be equal." About 90 Latino-owned businesses on the south side were closed for all or part of the...
