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...]

New Border Plan to be Introduced by Senate Democrats

Senate Democrats are set to propose a new $2.7 billion funding bill in order to deal with the current crisis at the border. The legislation falls short of the $3.7 billion President Obama had asked for, “based on a review of what is needed in calendar year 2014 to meet needs at the border”, explained Senate Appropriations Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), who will introduce the bill. The new bill will not include any changes to the 2008 anti-trafficking law, which could have made it easier to deport migrant children. The $2.7 billion will be used to provide legal services for … [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... Latinos (not Hispanics!) were the decisive factor in the last election, voting 71%  for President Obama and handing him victory in swing states like Florida, Colorado and Nevada. Even an adversary as staunch as Fox News CEO Roger Ailes declared that "the contributions made by Latinos are extraordinary." It appeared that we … [Read More...]

S. is that the elusive dream has been defined by our nation’s newcomers. The American Dream is by default an … [Read More...]
