MIAMI, FL - If the most important issue for this election is the economy, why do Latinos keep talking about anything else?
The Dream Act, what to do with 12 million undocumented immigrants in this country and the immigration reform are topics that keep confusing politicians who only want to talk about money, the health reform and its economic impact.
A survey conducted at the National Council of La Raza's annual convention revealed that the Latino concern about immigration has grown, coming in second place, but only by a small margin, followed by education.
For Clarissa Martinez from the National Council of La Raza, it is noteworthy that the concern for the immigration issue has risen, despite the economic and foreclosure crisis. In her opinion, Latinos see immigration as a civil rights issue that affects all Latinos, regardless their immigration status.
In his most recent article for Terra, the renowned journalist Carlos Harrison, a Pulitzer Prize-winning editor and writer of dozens of books in English and Spanish, analyzes the Latino message for the upcoming elections. Additionally, he explores the voting intentions of the two largest Hispanic groups in Florida, Cuban-Americans and Puerto Ricans, who are not personally affected by the nation's immigration policy.
