    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.

    Immigration Reform: a Voice of Reason

    This is the same climate in which President Obama and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano just announced the “Si Se Puede” of their continued and increased support for one of the most heinous Bush-era immigration policies:

    Our Man In Honduras

    “If you want to understand who the real power behind the [Honduran] coup is” says Robert White, president of the Washington-based Center for International Policy, during a recent interview, “you need to find out who’s paying Lanny Davis.”

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

    If a recent report by COFADEH is any indicator, there has been an exponential rise in the number of human rights violations since the June 28 coup. The report documented over 1,100 cases of arbitrary detentions, attacks on the media, killings and other human rights violations.

    The Obama Vision: immigrant detention centers

    President Obama appears willing to maintain and even expand a system of immigrant prisons that civil and human rights organizations across the country and around the world have criticized for the subhuman conditions and deaths found in that system.

    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.

    This is about CNN, not only Lou Dobbs

    Underlying CNN's desire to capture Latino audiences--our large and growing numbers--is the same reason they must heed our call to dump Dobbs from their network.

    A Respond to Lou Dobbs’ Invitation

    Dear Mr. Dobbs: Thank you for your invitation to appear tonight on the Lou Dobbs Show. I would be happy to accept under one condition: that alongside me appears CNN President Jon Klein as a participant in this important discussion.

    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.

    Poetic Justice: Dobbs Owes Everything to Immigrants

    Editor’s note: After Wednesday's abrupt on-air resignation of veteran CNN anchor Lou Dobbs, many Latino advocacy and immigrant rights groups felt vindicated. They had...

    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,

    I consider calling the flight attendant to complain. Hey, why do you let this man pay for only one seat? He is taking up half of my own seat.

    RNC chairman Michael Steele under fire from Republican Senators

    Steele's comments will likely help to fuel an already yawning divide between the Republican Party establishment and it's increasingly agitated and pseudo-Libertarian supporters. The Tea Party movement, based most discernibly on nationalist patriotism than any one platform, will not tolerate such a perceived lack of support for our Armed Forces.
