trump-nieto Politics

Donald J. Trump has made a mess of things in relations with Mexico, both on the campaign trail and in the White House. His insistence that our neighbor pay for a big beautiful wall prompted Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to cancel a scheduled trip to Washington. The bullying has since continued, with President Trump threatening to impose a 20% tariff on cars and all...

DESPITE DISTRACTIONS, MAYOR TURNER SAYS HOUSTON WILL SHINE ON SUPER BOWL SUNDAY Politics / Sports

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. After all, he created a Hispanic Advisory Council during crunch time in his campaign, correct? Then came a...

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...

November 25th, 2016 is a date more than two million Cuban Americans will never forget. Late that evening, they learned that brutal-turned-sickly dictator Fidel Castro, 90, had finally checked out of their world. In Miami, the epicenter of Cuban patriotism, hundreds of people poured into the streets. They cheered, danced, beat pots and pans, waved the Cuban flag, cried for joy and popped open champagne...

MARCO RUBIO SUCCESSFULLY DEFENDS SENATE SEAT,  AS SEVERAL OTHER YOUNG LATINOS CLIMB THE POLITICAL LADDER Politics

When Marco Rubio returned to Washington after a failed presidential bid, he had a surprising announcement for the waiting media. Seemingly disenchanted with dirty politics, the 45 year old Cuban-American said he would fill out his term in the U.S. Senate and return to normal life as a private citizen.

Veteran political commentator Ana Navarro is stanchly conservative and one of those rare Hispanics who has been loyal to the GOP seemingly forever. Her reasons are justified. A native of Nicaragua, Navarro fled to Miami in 1980 when she was only eight years old, her family fearful of the instability created by the Sandinista takeover. They were lucky because the majority of people from that impoverished Central...
