    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...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Michaela Chavez is a former Democrat who says she’s been a supporter of Donald Trump from Day One. She likes how his administration is handling the economy and feels he’s negotiating better trade deals for the country. And when it comes to immigration, the Albuquerque resident supports the president’s desire to build a wall on the Mexican border. “I’m all for immigration, as long as it is done the right way,” she said. Chavez is convinced Trump is building a better future for her family. She is the type of person Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale hopes...

    Wednesday, the entire leadership team for Latinos for Trump was suspended from Twitter, according to a press release. “On September 18th, Twitter management suspended the accounts for the entire leadership team of Latinos for Trump organization, who operates under Americanos. As a company that claim’s [sic] its purpose is ‘to serve the public conversation,’ the unjustified suspensions of these accounts is not only contrary to their stated purpose, but also silences the voice of a significant minority group,” the release said.

    The Guardian ^ | August 26, 2019 | Adrian Horton
    A new report has found that in the top 100 Hollywood films from 2007 through 2018, only 4.5% of all speaking characters were Latino, far out of step with the US population. The study, titled Latinos in Film: Erasure on Screen & Behind the Camera Across 1,200 Popular Movies, found a dearth of Latino representation in Hollywood’s top movies of the last decade, both in front of and behind the camera. Published in association with the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, the National Association of Latino Independent Producers and Wise Entertainment, the report outlined the prevalence of Latino erasure or misrepresentation...

    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...

    Prosecutors aren’t pursuing a criminal case against the dad who said he forgot he left his 1-year-old twins in a scorching car, where he found them dead after returning from work, according to a report. Juan Rodriguez appeared in a Bronx courthouse, but the district attorney elected not to put the case before a grand jury at this time, according to WABC. His next court date is Aug, 27. Rodriguez was charged Saturday with two counts of manslaughter and two counts of criminally negligent homicide for the Friday deaths of tots Phoenix and Luna.
  • Why the GOP Has Declined in California: Nope, It's Not Because the Party Enraged Latinos

    Talk to almost any Californians (that is, to any who’ve been in the state since before the ’90s) and they’ll tell a simple story of conservative decline. A crucial 1994 ballot initiative that attempted to enact stricter restrictions on illegal immigrants, Proposition 187, was pushed by a radicalizing GOP in a diversifying California. This initiative was a draconian effort to lash out against minorities’ political gains, and it especially enraged and energized Latinos, long a sleeping giant in California politics. In short, overreach tinged with racism caused Republicans to go the way of the grizzly on the state flag: extinct....

    Casting himself as the “anti-Trump,” Democratic presidential contender former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke sought to rally illegal immigrants to his side. “America was founded on white supremacy,” the candidate argued. “As a person who was born white I could’ve aligned myself with the oppressors and reaped the benefits of exploiting the weak. But I courageously converted to Latino as an adult so I could lead an army of oppressed brown people to victory over white tyranny.” O’Rourke pleaded with his audience to “send for more of your relatives and friends to come to America and join this army. Hundreds of...
  • Univision forecast: Latino vote will sink Trump in Florida (wrong in 2016, likely wrong in 2020)

    Hillary Clinton will win the key swing state of Florida thanks to the Latino vote, a Univision News election forecast predicts. Without Florida's electoral votes, Trump can't win in November. Donald Trump will lose the election in Florida - the swing state with the most electoral votes - because most Latinos won't vote for him, Univision News predicts. As a result, it's virtually impossible for him to win the White House due to the electoral college system, according to a a Univision data analysis of the key five swing states expected to determine the outcome in November. The forecast, based...

    The collusion is coming from inside the Democrats. It always was. Russia is being run by ex-KGB people. It's not too surprising that they're pursuing the same tactics that they did during the Soviet days. Despite media lies and Democrat conspiracy theories, a Senate report on the so-called Russian election interference showed that Russia targeted black people, not Republicans. It also reveals that the Russians bought over 1,000 ads targeting African-Americans and less than 300 targeting conservatives. There were 81 social justice ads and only 24 patriotism ads, 66 pro-gun ads and 70 LGBT ads, 43 veteran ads and 57...

    “You did what?!” Parents across Santa Ana couldn’t believe it. In one house after another, the answer to “How was school today?” was nothing like they expected. Moms and dads listened in disbelief as their middle schoolers talked about going to an “LGBT Fair” that no one bothered to ask their permission for. There were even people in drag, their 11-year-olds said, giving makeup lessons—right there in school. Townhall’s Kira Davis listened as one mom fumed about not knowing about the fair until after it happened. There wasn’t even an opportunity to opt out, she complained at last Tuesday’s school...

    Five million Central American residents want to migrate into the United States, according to Gallup survey published right after the midterm elections. The caravans of economic migrants moving northwards to the U.S. border “actually represent a relatively small fragment of a much larger group of people in their own region — and around the world — who say they would like to move to the U.S. if they could,” said Gallup. The five million number is one-in-three adults in Central America, the survey firm said. But average birth rate and family size in Central America are roughly twice as large...

    As a Never Trumper, I didn’t get it. So, I interviewed some Latinos for Trump and I got an earful. Many of them saw themselves not as Latinos but as Americans, and so they weren’t hung up on Trump’s anti-Latino screeds. They didn’t like or trust Clinton, appreciated Trump’s frankness, wanted a strong leader, and thought he was right about a lot of issues, including trade and immigration. Yes, immigration. What most non-Latinos don’t grasp is that Latinos are ambivalent about illegal immigration. They have a front-row seat not just to the pain of deportations, but also to how many...

    An HIV/AIDS group, whose board of advisers includes doctors from some of the most prestigious medical institutions in the country, says that "fear of Trump policies" may be a factor in the rising rate of HIV in Latino homosexual men. HIV is the virus that causes AIDS; 68% of new HIV infections in the United States occur in homosexual and bisexual men. "The Body, The Complete HIV/AIDS Resource" is a service of Remedy Health Media in New York City, and it states that part of its mission is to "demystify HIV/AIDS and its treatment" and "use the Web to lower...

    The Department of Justice announced charges against 25 individuals on Friday who committed fraud using Puerto Rican identities in an effort to gain government benefits and in some cases even vote. 22 of the 25 charged were illegal aliens, many with records of drug dealing, violent crimes, and some previously deported. Imposters regularly use birth certificates and social security cards stolen or copied from Puerto Ricans to pose as American citizens in order to receive Medicare, evade arrest, and take advantage of welfare benefits such as EBT cards and food stamps. In a sting operation known as, “Operation Double Trouble”...

    A major protest is reportedly scheduled to take place on Sept. 22 at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida to mark the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria. According to CBS News, the Latino Victory Project (LVP) and Power 4 Puerto Rico (P4P) are launching a seven-figure campaign to register displaced Puerto Rican voters ahead of midterm elections. They are also organizing major demonstrations at the president’s Florida estate and at Trump Tower in New York as part of the initiative. After Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico last year, the Trump administration faced immense criticism for its handling of recovery efforts...

    There are no precise figures on how many Latino Muslims live in the Chicago area, where the population is about 30 percent Latino. But, according to various estimates, the 130 mosques in the city and suburbs are the spiritual home to a small but growing group of converts — Latino Muslims. Some converts from devout Catholic families say they sometimes are faced with skepticism and ignorance from their own relatives: “Oh, what are you an Arab now?” “Why did you join a black religion?” “Did you join ISIS?” “Take that thing off your head.”
