Latino voter suppression is self-inflicted

Gallego Victory.

Election after election, Latinos pin on a "kick me" sign.

They don't vote.

That's the reason Republicans can ignore them and tea party extremists can hold up immigration reform.

In January 2011, wheelchair-bound Randal Dunklin, 55, was denied services at a mental health clinic in San Francisco. Outside the clinic, he grew upset and began vandalizing cars. He pulled out a knife, prompting police to arrive at the scene. When he wouldn't drop the weapon, plainclothes officers pepper-sprayed him, and Dunklin stabbed one of them in the arm. The police shot him. Dunklin survived, but many in need of mental health services who find themselves...

Latino voter suppression is self-inflicted

Election after election, Latinos pin on a "kick me" sign. They don't vote. That's the reason Republicans can ignore them and tea party extremists can hold up immigration reform. A report from the Pew Hispanic Center says a record 25.2 million Latinos are eligible to vote in the 2014 midterms. But Latino voter turnout lags well behind other groups. So who cares? Arizona has two competitive congressional races, Democratic Rep. Ron Barber vs. GOP Martha McSally in CD 2,...

Latino groups vent frustration at CHC

Frustrated Latino activists are training their fire on their closest ally on Capitol Hill: the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Many grass-roots activists say the influential coalition of Latino lawmakers hasn’t pushed President Barack Obama and other Democrats far enough on their top priority of stopping deportations of millions of immigrants in the United States illegally. The last straw for the activists was when the caucus recently backed off a formal demand for the Obama administration to act on...
