Most of us remember Jimena Valencia Madrid, the six year old Salvadorian girl who was apprehended with her mom while crossing our southern border from Mexico. After fleeing murder and rape in their home country of El Salvador, things would seemingly get worse in the United States when they were immediately separated by ICE and border authorities. Jimena was sent to a “tender age” shelter...

While our Facebook page has generated a lot of traffic and provocative conversations, a recent illness has made it difficult for me to post original material on HispanicHorizons.com.

JOE ARPAIO PARDON FANS THE FLAMES OF HATE Politics

It didn’t take Donald J. Trump very long to once again show his true colors.

SAN DIEGO’S CHICANO PARK SHARES ITS LEGACY WITH THE NATION Politics

It was a typical busy weekend at Chicano Park, a symbol of civic pride in San Diego’s Barrio Logan community beneath the Coronado Bay bridge.

WHY DID TRUMP SNUB ABEL MALDONADO FOR AGRICULTURE CABINET POST? Politics

Even if a decision defies logic, Donald J. Trump seems to relish the element of surprise. Get used to it, folks. After calling Mexicans drug peddlers, criminals and rapists, there was a glimmer of hope that our new president might give a brown person a fair shake.

GARCETTI LEADS BIG CITY MAYORS IN BATTLE TO DISCOURAGE TRUMP’S DEPORTATION PLANS Politics

The divide between urban and rural America was clearly apparent in our country’s last election. Hillary Clinton won the popularity contest by around three million votes because of her strength in the inner cities. The results were the same from coast to coast, wherever the minority population had the numbers to make a difference. Donald Trump, the New York City billionaire, ironically had the geographical...
