    President Donald Trump and two of his key cabinet chiefs addressed the growing problem of the violent transnational MS-13 street gang on April 18, with Attorney General Jeff Sessions even saying the gang could qualify as a terrorist organization. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the gang could qualify as a terrorist organization. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly called MS-13 one of the greatest hazards the nation faces. And Trump sent out a tweet: “The weak illegal immigration policies of the Obama Admin. allowed bad MS 13 gangs to form in cities across U.S. We are removing them fast!”

    Maxine Waters has been in the news a lot lately because she’s constantly criticizing Trump. As a result, she has become a new darling of the left. Now she has a Republican challenger for the next election named Omar Navarro. He’s a Latino and a Trump supporter! Here’s a press release from his website: Republican Omar Navarro On The Campaign To Unseat Maxine Waters Torrance, CA – Omar Navarro the Republican challenger to Maxine Waters for Congressional Seat of the 43rd District was on the front lines in the City of Cudahy’s bid to be considered a sanctuary city.

    In yet another story about the perpetually offended attempting to shut down businesses over ideological differences, the CEO of a construction company that put in a bid to build the proposed border wall said he is “receiving death threats and being called a traitor, in part because he is of Mexican descent.” Because God forbid someone try to secure a contract that would net their company millions of dollars. Texas-based Penna Group’s CEO, Michael Evangelista-Ysasaga, said that the decision to put in a bid was not an easy one, considering 80 percent of his workforce is Latino. “A lot of people are...

    Next week, a group of patriots, who happen to be Hispanic, will gather to celebrate the inauguration of President-elect Donald J. Trump. It will be the kind of moment that runs counter to the narratives of the political and the media elite, but to those of us in the room, our celebration makes perfect sense. If news of our inauguration party surprises you, recall that 29 percent of the Hispanic vote went to Trump. Remember, too, that Latinos are feeling the sharp pain of economic adversity that Trump has convincingly promised to change. Remember also that one of the great...

    China got it wrong: 2017 is not the year of the rooster—it’s the year of the white male. 2017 is the year the white man takes back his worth. Black Male Supremacists. Unheard of. Brown Male Supremacists. Unheard of. Because it’s only trendy for American elites to bash white males. Especially white males who never owned slaves; white males who never “stole” land from Native Americans or Mexicans; and white males who never hired an unqualified male over a qualified female in the workplace. How do white men handle the hatred hurled their way? Good question. I’ve prepared a...

    DENVER (CBS4)– Federal authorities told the Colorado Department of Transportation and opponents of the planned Interstate 70 expansion this week that it would open an investigation into claims the project violates the Civil Rights Act.The pending investigation comes in response to a federal complaint filed with the U.S Department of Transportation by Earthjustice, an environmental law firm, and neighborhood groups impacted by the project, including the Cross Community Coalition, Colorado Latino Forum and Elyria-Swansea Neighborhood Association. Filed last month, the complaint alleges CDOT’s plan will result in “disparate and severe environmental and economic impacts” on the predominantly Latino communities.Candi CdeBaca,...

    They heard him when he called them criminals, thugs, rapists. They saw the taco-bowl tweet on Cinco de Mayo and listened as he sought to discredit a federal judge of Mexican heritage. And now, with less than a month to go before Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, Latino tech workers are waiting to see what he’ll do next.

    The question hangs heavy over our domestic Spanish-language news media: "Why did Hispanics vote for Donald Trump?" As the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States continues to approach, our two leading networks took widely divergent approaches to this question. Univision has chosen to treat the question as if it were an unsolvable enigma- not unlike a 17-sided Rubik's Cube delivered straight from the bowels of hell. Anchors and hosts alike have been utterly confounded as to the reasons why a vast number of Latinos would reject the network's messaging (not to mention the network itself). Anchor Jorge Ramos simply wrote...

It is obvious with the results of our recent presidential election that the same establishment ‘politics as usual’ don’t work anymore.”... feeling “assaulted” by the nation’s decision to elect Donald Trump...The activist – who became a citizen at age 21 – rejects Trump’s stereotypical views of inner-cities, which he called hells on multiple occasions.

    In the lead-up to the election, there was a lot of talk about how Latinos would turn out in record numbers to stop Donald Trump. But not only did Trump end up winning, exit polls also indicated that he won 29 percent of the Latino vote — better than Mitt Romney had done four years earlier. That has sparked a heated debate among pollsters and advocacy groups over whether the exit polls can be trusted. The most prominent skeptics of the exit polls’ findings have been Gary Segura and Matt Barreto, the co-founders of Latino Decisions, a polling firm that...

    A skit portraying the assassination of President-elect Donald Trump by two 10th-grade students at Marshall High School provoked anger and dismay from the parents of a student who watched it unfold last week. Harold and Melinda Bean said that in the skit, entitled “The Assassination of Donald Trump,” one of the boys made a gunfire sound effect with his cell phone as the other boy, portraying Trump, fell to the ground in mock death. “I don’t understand how the teacher can repeat an apology and be right there back at work on Monday morning,” he said. “Though we understand she...

    The month of November has been a bit bumpy for Univision Communications. First Donald Trump wins the presidency and now the Spanish-language media conglomerate is slated for mass layoffs. Univision will be dismissing six percent of its workforce and restructuring following a third-quarter net loss of $30.5 million, the company announced Wednesday and The Washington Post first reported. The layoffs are expected to result in some 200-250 job-losses. ...more...

    The Spanish-language media giant Univision Communications will lay off almost 6 percent of its workforce — between 200 and 250 people — after it slipped into the red last quarter, the company announced Wednesday. The layoffs, along with a planned restructuring, “are in response to difficult times, challenging times,” Isaac Lee, Univision’s digital, entertainment and news chief, told The Washington Post in his first public comments on the moves. “We need to position ourselves for the future.”

    (Snip) The Latino vote in Florida upended the Clinton campaign’s strategy, and what we thought we knew about where politics is headed. Chalk it up to a kind of cynical Latina wariness, but I never felt convinced that Hillary Clinton would win the general election. Yet as reports poured in about the historic number of Latinos lining up to vote early in Miami, I felt 100 percent certain that the state would remain blue. After all, Cuban-American members of Congress like Carlos Curbelo and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen had refused to endorse Trump. In October, following the “Access Hollywood” scandal, Ros-Lehtinen called...

    The National Council of La Raza says there is no way more Latino voters supported Donald Trump than supported former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in 2012. According to exit poll data, Trump received 29 percent of the Latino vote, compared to the 27 percent Romney received in 2012. While Trump lost the Latino vote Tuesday night, his 36 percentage point margin of defeat among Latinos was also smaller than Romney’s 44 percentage point loss to Barack Obama. La Raza, however, says that exit poll data is incorrect. ...more...

    As the reality of President-elect Donald Trump settled in very early Wednesday morning, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes summed up an explanation common to many on the left: The Republican nominee pulled ahead thanks to old-fashioned American racism. But the attempt to make Trump’s victory about racism appears to be at odds with what actually happened on Election Day. Consider the following facts. Twenty-nine percent of Latinos voted for Trump, per exit polls. Remarkably, despite the near-ubiquitous narrative that Trump would have deep problems with this demographic given his comments and position on immigration, this was a higher percentage of those who...

    With 10 years remaining in its $12 billion road-building program, the Illinois tollway intends to start training workers to help finish the job. The aim is to increase the number of minorities working on tollway projects through a center teaching construction-related skills, officials said at a meeting Wednesday. The program is in the early stages, with diversity department planners still figuring out logistics, including funding. About $400,000 is allocated for 2017, although several tollway board directors advised staff members to budget for more. A 2015 tollway study concluded that blacks, Hispanics and women are underrepresented compared to whites when it...

    Hillary Clinton's campaign just got some very good news from Florida. The Clinton campaign is reporting an "unprecedented" 133,000 Latinos have cast early ballots ahead of the November 8 election - a 99 percent increase in Latino voters compared to 2012, BuzzFeed News reported. The 133,000 votes consist of vote-by-mail and absentee ballots. Early voting in Florida began Monday. The Clinton campaign calls it a promising sign for the Democratic nominee as Latinos comprise 17% of the electorate in the swing state. A survey taken the week of Oct. 17 to Oct. 24 by the National Association of Latino Elected...
