With the immigration debate in Washington frozen, support for Democrats among Latinos has declined slightly going into the midterm elections next week, but they still heavily favor Democrats over Republicans, according to a national bilingual poll released Wednesday by the

Conservatives in Congress are drawing up their wish list for a Republican Senate, including “pure” bills, like a full repeal of Obamacare, border security and approval of the Keystone XL pipeline — unlikely to win over many Democrats and sure to torment GOP leaders looking

Flag of Mexico.

The U.S. government-funded Merida Initiative was supposed to bolster Mexican government efforts to promote the rule of law and human rights. The accountability failures exposed by the Iguala atrocity suggest that it’s time to take a closer look, to ensure that U.S. taxpaye

Non-Citizen Voter Fraud is Not Swaying Elections

Non-Citizen Voter Fraud.

Along with campaign ads and ballot initiatives, the November elections inevitably bring allegations that non-citizens are turning out in droves to skew elections.  Despite repeated investigations over the years finding no indication that systematic vote fraud by non-citize

Pablo Sandoval, the new face of Latino baseball in America

Call World Series hero Pablo Sandoval of the San Francisco Giants the world’s richest panda. Or soon to be. The Giants’ slugging third baseman will be eligible for free agency next week, fresh off yet another World Series victory in which he further established himself as one of the game’s most productive post-season hitters. And Sandoval, 28, aka “Kung Fu Panda,” is likely to sign a contract either with the Giants or some other team in free...

Latino Support for Democrats Drops a Bit, Poll Says

With the immigration debate in Washington frozen, support for Democrats among Latinos has declined slightly going into the midterm elections next week, but they still heavily favor Democrats over Republicans, according to a national bilingual poll released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center. The biggest change was among Latinos with no party preference, with 35 percent of registered Latino voters saying that neither party was particularly concerned about them. During the 2012 election cycle, that number...

Conservatives ready to give leaders hell

Conservatives in Congress are drawing up their wish list for a Republican Senate, including “pure” bills, like a full repeal of Obamacare, border security and approval of the Keystone XL pipeline — unlikely to win over many Democrats and sure to torment GOP leaders looking to prove they can govern. Interviews with more than a dozen conservative lawmakers and senior aides found a consensus among the right wing of the Republican Party: If Republicans take the...

Behind Mexico’s latest massacre: Authorities were warned but didn’t listen

The U.S. government-funded Merida Initiative was supposed to bolster Mexican government efforts to promote the rule of law and human rights. The accountability failures exposed by the Iguala atrocity suggest that it’s time to take a closer look, to ensure that U.S. taxpayer money is part of the solution rather than part of the problem. Yet so far, Mexico’s government has long treated Guerrero’s civil society as a threat rather than as a partner – jailing...

Non-Citizen Voter Fraud is Not Swaying Elections

Along with campaign ads and ballot initiatives, the November elections inevitably bring allegations that non-citizens are turning out in droves to skew elections.  Despite repeated investigations over the years finding no indication that systematic vote fraud by non-citizens occurs, some voters will have to navigate cumbersome voter identification laws designed to address a non-existent problem. Supporters of these laws like to pretend that non-citizens are crowding into voting booths and illegally changing the outcome of critical...

What's Behind the Falling Latino Dropout Rates?

What's Behind the Falling Latino Dropout Rates?

Something is afoot in the education of Latinos. Consider these facts: _ The Hispanic dropout rate, 14 percent, is the lowest it’s been in three decades and has been cut in half since 2000. _ About a fourth of the people who took the GED test in 2013 were Latino, the largest share since 2003. _ The graduation rate for Hispanics, different than the dropout rate, was up to 76 percent to 2012, a 15 percentage point increase from...

Krugman: How GOP Ideology Kills American Investment

Krugman: How GOP Ideology Kills American Investment

America used to be a country that built for the future. Sometimes the government built directly: Public projects, from the Erie Canal to the Interstate Highway System, provided the backbone for economic growth. Sometimes it provided incentives to the private sector, like land grants to spur railroad construction. Either way, there was broad support for spending that would make us richer. But nowadays we simply won’t invest, even when the need is obvious and the timing...
