    Donald Trump made such shocking inroads on Democratic support among Hispanics that some Hispanic vote experts are declaring, “there’s no such thing as a Latino vote” after 2020.It’s not just the Hispanic counties where Trump came close or won. Even in the counties where he lost badly, he still reduced Joe Biden’s vote compared to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 vote among Hispanics by a double-digit margin.Santa Cruz County in Arizona is 80 percent Hispanic. Hillary Clinton won the county in 2016 by 47 points. Trump was able to shave Biden’s victory in the county to 35 percent. In anti-Trump California, Hillary...

    Proposition 16 in California, which would have allowed “diversity” to be a factor in hiring and school admissions, went down in flames on Election Day, largely because several majority-Hispanic counties voted against it.It wasn’t even close. While pro-affirmative action groups and every major Democratic organization in the state backed the measure and supporters outspent opponents $20 million to $1.5 million, the measure still lost by 14 points.It was a shocking defeat, especially since all the major Hispanic groups backed the measure. But something funny happened on the way to climbing aboard the diversity train; it had already left the station...
  • What happened in South Texas? The Hispanic vote swept to Trump.

    The GOP did very well in Texas.  It also did very well in South Texas, as we see in this report from The Dallas Morning News: While Biden carried the vote in the Rio Grande Valley, he did so with a much tighter margin than Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016. That erosion — in an area considered a Democratic stronghold — is a warning sign to the party as it tries to flip the state.   It also serves as a stark reminder that the Latino vote is diverse, especially in a state the size of Texas. And that Democrats...

    Since his election to the U.S. Senate in 2010, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has been a steadfast champion of private property rights. Driven by many of his constituents’ horrific experiences living under communism, Sen. Rubio has taken a strong stand against eminent domain, intellectual property infringement, and taxes and regulations that make it difficult for people to pursue their livelihoods and the American Dream. Now, by continuing his commendable stand for property rights by standing firm against Venezuela’s vile expropriation schemes, the lawmaker has a chance to help the victims of Venezuela’s socialist regime reclaim property that was stolen from them. Under...

    Democrat operatives must be panicking in the fallout of the first presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, considering the initial response from the Hispanic community. In Telemundo’s poll of Spanish-speaking individuals, a shocking 66 percent of them believed that Trump defeated Biden in the debate. Trump’s popularity among Hispanics has skyrocketed as the Black Lives Matter terror spree has devastated communities across the country. Democrats have either cheered on the orgy of destruction or looked the other way as countless lives have been destroyed nationwide by left-wing terror.

    The president traveled to the Democratic stronghold of Miami-Dade County this week to persuade the Latin community to grant him four more years in office. Politically speaking, this in-your-face move demonstrates that the Trump Campaign feels it has a legitimate shot at this crucial voting bloc. It is antithetical to voting trends, so why would Trump’s political strategists suggest he make a push for the Hispanic vote?Let Us Count the Ways Undaunted by Miami-Dade’s electoral past, Mr. Trump went into the belly of the beast – a brash move that garnered a lot of free airtime.

    A minor panic emerged from the Joe Biden camp after polls suggested that Hispanic voters in Florida are less supportive of their nominee than expected. Their confusion comes from believing in the idea that voters’ racial or ethnic backgrounds are the most important things about them. Combine that with incorrect ideas about what issues actually matter to people, and you have a campaign and a party that seriously misunderstands the electorate.The alternative would be — and should be — to treat all Americans simply as Americans. Most citizens, whatever their backgrounds, want the same things: peace, prosperity, safety, and...

    Sen. Kamala Harris’ motorcade raced past Colombian neighborhoods and made a quick stop for takeout in Doral — or “Doral-zuela” as it’s known locally because of its large Venezuelan population — before speeding through the Cuban stronghold of Hialeah. But during her first trip to Florida as Joe Biden’s running mate last week, Harris did little to court this region’s booming — and politically influential — Latino population. She instead focused on African American leaders waiting at a historically (b)lack university in Miami Gardens. “You truly are the future of our country,” Harris said into a megaphone after the motorcade...

Latinos from South America and Cuba who have suffered under Socialist and Communist regimes have come to the US for a better life and they know Biden and Harris will usher in Socialism which = suffering and death. Latinos for Trump came out and lined the streets of Miami on Thursday to make it clear they reject Kamala Harris. “No Communista. No Socialista” one sign said. Her supporters?...

    California keeps going out of its way to drive residents to Texas or somewhere else. We learned that California has set up a panel to study reparations.  This is the story: The panel would study the effects slavery had on California and recommend to the legislature no later than 2023 what type of compensation would be appropriate, how it might be dispersed and who could be eligible to receive it. The task force could also recommend other forms of redress besides money. According to a state lawmaker, slavery is responsible for higher rates of incarceration, homelessness, and unemployment for African-Americans.  No one...

    As national Black Lives Matter demonstrations grow, Latino activists are joining the multiracial protests while trying to draw attention to their deadly police encounters, some of which go back decades. Latino advocates and families of those killed by police say they aren’t trying to pull the focus away from Black lives but want to illustrate their own suffering from policing and systemic racism. Activists say cases from Phoenix to Springfield, Massachusetts, show a pattern of police violence against Latinos like that against Black people. As with the killing of Black men and women, officers rarely face punishment in the deaths...

    A New Mexico Hispanic leader upset about the removal of Spanish conquistador monuments is pushing for the state to end its support for Chicano and Native American studies. In a letter to University of New Mexico President Garnett Stokes, New Mexico League of United Latin American Citizens Executive Director Ralph Arellanes wrote that the state’s largest university should dismantle both programs because they teach Latino students “self-hate” about their Spanish heritage. Arellanes, who signed that letter in his role as New Mexico LULAC executive director and chair of the Hispano Roundtable of New Mexico, said he has collected stories of...

    A group of 94 field organizers for former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign sent a letter to the Democratic National Convention claiming the Biden campaign is “suppressing the Hispanic vote” in Central Florida and mistreating staff. The letter, which was obtained by the Miami Herald Saturday, alleges that the Biden campaign mistreated field organizers and relocated trained staff members without adequate explanation. A handful of Puerto Rican, Spanish-speaking organizers were moved from a heavily Puerto Rican part of Florida to north Florida against their wishes, the group alleges. “The [Coordinated Campaign of Florida] is suppressing the Hispanic vote by...

    A national organization is announcing a $10 million campaign to turn out Hispanic voters in several of this year’s battleground states. Mi Familia Vota, based in Phoenix, said it will spend $7 million on get-out-the-vote measures and an additional $3 million on digital and television ads, starting in Arizona and Florida. Arizona in particular is seen as a battleground because of shifting demographics in the traditionally Republican state. Hispanics are a growing proportion of the electorate. The campaign comes amid rising concerns about Latino turnout in a year when that community has been hit particularly hard by the coronavirus. Latinos...

    Some New York City neighborhoods have seen death rates from the novel coronavirus nearly 15 times higher than others, according to data released by New York City’s health department on Monday, showing the disproportionate toll taken on poor communities. The data shows for the first time a breakdown on the number of deaths in each of the city’s more than 60 ZIP codes. The highest death rate was seen on the edge of Brooklyn in a neighborhood dominated by a large subsidized-housing development called Starrett City. Civic leaders had been pushing for the more granular data, which they said would...

But the former hispanic governor has gone a step further, saying that the Trump campaign is actually doing a better job at Hispanic outreach than presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, according to Politico.

    Blanca “Doña Nelly” Torres lives in an assisted living senior residence in Port St. Lucie, Fla. SNIP Without Lourdes’(daughter) assistance, it is unlikely that Doña Nelly would be able to vote — not only because of the language barrier, but also because at 87, her vision isn’t what it used to be. Lourdes was able to help her vote during the primaries, but that was before her residence stopped allowing visitors due to the threat of COVID-19. If the virus continues to limit gatherings into the November elections, Doña Nelly fears she — along with millions of other Latino voters...

    The numbers are preliminary, but it seems that African Americans are dying from COVID-19 at alarming rates. In Louisiana, for instance, blacks represent 70 percent of the dead but only 33 percent of the population. In Michigan, blacks comprise 33 percent of the infected, but 40 percent of the fatalities. This has occasioned an outpouring of analysis suggesting that racism is to blame. Racism and discrimination have unarguably left grave traces in the lives of African Americans, but the rush to identify racism as the cause of this particular disparity may be too pat. CNN, like many others, cited lower...
