Pew Research Survey: Latinos Divided Over How to Handle Surge of Unaccompanied Minors at the Border

          According to a recent Pew Research Survey conducted earlier this month, Hispanics are torn over how to best address the influx of unaccompanied minors at the southern border. 49% of Latinos are in favor of maintaining the current policy that dictates how immigration cases are decided, while 47% of those surveyed support an overhaul of the system that would expedite the legal process of deportations. This virtual split in public opinion among Latinos is in stark contrast to the rest of the general population surveyed which favors an expedited … [Read More...]

Guest Blogger: Jason Llorenz “Net Neutrality’s Brain Drain and Distraction”

As a national community, we debate and think often about the impact of the Internet on our lives. The issues that emerge in those conversations are tied to real needs - for affordable connectivity, access to laptops and mobile tech for learning and business, as examples. Latino tech leaders talk about the stories of Dreamers organizing on social media via mobile devices, and how they kept up with el Mundial at work, by checking Facebook from their phones. Net neutrality doesn't even come up in conversation. Yet the outcome of the seemingly never ending debate over net neutrality or the … [Read More...]

Guest Blogger: Alfredo Estrada “Here We Go Again”

We've seen this movie before. Many of us at LATINO Magazine worked at HISPANIC, launched in 1988 during the so-called "Decade of the Hispanic." It certainly wasn't, and no one would make the same claim of the naughty '90s and double-barreled '00s. But here we go again...
