Latino Power in America is Rising

Democrats in Orange County, California, with the help of a fast-growing Latino electorate, will likely represent five of its seven congressional districts in a complete flipping of the "political tortilla" there.

Arizona Casts Obama as ‘Frenemy’ of SB-1070

Until the President acts decisively to eradicate these programs at the root of the SB-1070 problem plaguing the country, activists should and will continue actions-protests, boycotts, vigils, and other community based actions-that will increasingly target also Washington and Obama.

A National ID Card System?

I truly and honestly implore those of you in DC to do the right thing on the National ID Card idea: Repudiate and denounce it immediately as the ACLU and even libertarian and right wing groups have done.

Good cop, bad cop: America’s policy in Honduras

Lou Dobbs plays the victim

Faced with a growing movement of communities demanding that CNN drop his program, Lou Dobbs responded Friday with one of his favorite postures: the victimized defender of American virtue. "They ask CNN to fire me because I oppose illegal immigration" said Dobbs.

Questions Surrounding Dobbs’ Gunfire Incident

Conflicting reports about a bullet that hit the top of Lou Dobbs' house in Sussex, New Jersey, are raising new and serious questions about the credibility of Lou Dobbs, CNN and its President, Jon Klein.

The Fall of Dobbs and the Immigrants

I cried because as a member, relative and friend of the groups most vilified by Dobbs for so many years - Latinos and immigrants - I was inspired by the power of the movement to oust him.

Planeta o Muerte: Evo Morales and the Revolutionary Politics of Mother Earth

Sponsoring a conference with the radical approach of the CMPCC puts Morales in direct conflict with another head of state whose election marked a historic political and racial shift, Barack Obama.

Mother Earth is a Living Being

"The models of the indigenous and peasant peoples of the world are the only ones that will cool the planet" declared Quechua leader of the Federation of Bolivian Campesinas,
