Hispanic Heritage Month takes place every year between September 15 and October 15. Although it is set aside for the nation to recognize the contributions of Hispanic Americans, the nationwide festivities are really about celebrating who we are as a country.

With its diverse food, music and language, the Hispanic culture is an integral part of the social and cultural fabric of the United States.
Below you’ll find some interesting facts about the Hispanic community, which continues to grow in both numbers and contributions to the social, economic and cultural life in the United States.

Population and language

Key Facts: Hispanics are the largest minority group in the country with more than 50.5 million people, or 16.3 percent of the population. 35 million people speak Spanish at home and more than half of those say they speak English “very well,” according to the Census Bureau.

Did you know?: The Federal Government launched the Spanish-language portal GobiernoUSA.gov in 2003 to provide meaningful and useful information for people with limited English proficiency. It’s the sister site of USA.gov. Both portals centralize information on federal programs and services.

Last names

Key Facts
: Several Hispanic last names make the list of the top 15 most common last names in the United States. The most popular Hispanic last name was Garcia, in eighth place, according to the 2000 Census. Rodríguez, Martínez and Hernández took the ninth, 11th and 15th places, respectively.

Did you know?: You must let the Social Security Administration know if you change your name. Otherwise the agency will not properly record your earnings, which might affect your Social Security benefits.

Armed Forces

Key Facts: There are currently more than 1.33 million Hispanics serving in the nation’s Armed Forces. Additionally, there are about 1.1 million Hispanics 18 years or older who are veterans of the Armed Forces.

Did you know?: Almost all males who live in the United States and are between the ages of 18 and 25 must register with the Selective Service, even those who lack proper immigration documents. This is required so that the country knows who it can enlist in case of a national emergency. Individuals who don’t register could lose government benefits or even be denied a job.

Small Businesses

Key Facts: Hispanics are businesspeople. The number of Hispanic-owned businesses in the United States grew by 43.7% from 2002 to 2007, according to the latest census figures. The rate of growth was double that of the rest of the population.

Did you know?: The Small Business Administration offers business training as well as a wide range of financing programs to help all small businesses. The agency also has programs designed to help minority businesses, including those owned by Hispanics and women.

Education

Key Facts: At the time of the last Census, 63% percent of Hispanics 25 and older had at least a high school education. Also, 14% of Hispanics 25 and older had a bachelor’s degree.

Did you know?: The federal government offers financial assistance such as loans and scholarships to people who want to go to college. Help is provided through Federal Student Aid, an office of the Department of Education.

Over-the-top is an understatement when it comes to Lucha Libre USA: Masked Warriors, the high-spirited Mexican wrestling spectacular that marries exciting aerial maneuvers and extraordinary acrobatics with flamboyant characters and outlandish story lines. Beginning on October 1, Lucha Libre USA: Masked Warriors begins its second season of explosive battles—in and out of the ring—on MTV2 and MTV Tr3s. The series is recorded before enthusiastic live audiences at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Albuquerque in NM.

A global phenomenon that is almost a religion in Mexico, where it rivals soccer in attendance, lucha libre (free wrestling) boasts a 75-year history of colorful, fun-for-the-whole family entertainment.
Having already won the loyalty of generations of Latino fans of all ages,  Lucha Libre USA is conquering American audiences—particularly the sought after young male 12-34 demographics—with its unique spin on the art of wrestling and the outsized personalities of its Luchastars.

“With Lucha Libre USA,” CEO Steven Ship says, “we have created a distinctive fusion of American pop culture and a great Mexican sport, one that appeals equally to the 50 million Hispanics living in the US, the mainstream wrestling fan and the MTV2 viewer.”

To capture that audience, Lucha Libre USA: Masked Warriors has brought in a well-known, world-class roster of Mexican and U.S .wrestlers, like Lizmark Jr. Super Nova, Marco Corleone, Shane Helms and Tinieblas Jr.

“I can’t wait for pro wrestling fans to check out Masked Warriors,” says Corleone. “It’s really a much different product than U.S. fans are used to seeing. As someone who wrestled in the States for years, I can tell you that the lucha style is a lot more high-flying and thrilling than traditional pro wrestling. Lucha Libre USA: Masked Warriors is going to take the lucha experience to a whole new level.”

Just a few minutes before the ceremony of the Grito de Independencia in the city of Saltillo, Coahuila was set to begin, gunfire broke out. The State Emergency 066 System was activated once authorities logged the call. Reports are that it began with a confrontation at the corner of Key Street and Ramon Corona, a few blocks from the Government Palace. Ultimately two people were killed, both approximately 30 years old. They have yet to be identified and the investigation reveals at least 20 shots were fired in the crowd.


Elements of the Municipal Police, State Police and Mexican army guard responded to the site immediately. The bodies were taken to the amphitheater.

At the Plaza de Armas several people panicked when the fireworks started, screaming that it was gunshots.  Some people were fainting, other cried hysterically as terror and panic prevailed. Members of the band Horoscopos de Durango were afraid when they heard the screams and left the stage.  Authorities said that everyone involved in the spreading of terror were arrested by members of the Municipal Police.

Painkillers and Pens Used to Placate Peru’s Indians as Gas Giants Move In

Painkillers and Pens Used to Placate Peru’s Indians as Gas Giants Move In

Isolated Indians in southeast Peru are being ‘bribed’ with painkillers and pens, as industry giants seek to open up their land to explore for gas.

Survival has learned that even members of INDEPA – the government agency set up to protect Peru’s tribes – have put pressure on communities so research can be carried out in the reserve where they live.

Workers from Argentine gas giant Pluspetrol have been into the Kugapakori-Nahua Reserve to conduct environmental tests on the land’s suitability. The reserve was created in 1990 to protect the territorial rights of vulnerable tribes.


Enrique Dixpopidiba Shocoroa, a Nahua leader, said his tribe have been given medical equipment, stationery, and promises of temporary work.

This worrying development comes as Peru’s President Ollanta Humala approves an historic law designed to guarantee indigenous peoples the right to prior consultation about any projects affecting them and their land.

But around 15 tribes have chosen to resist contact in the Peruvian Amazon, and several are inside the reserve. All face extinction if their lands are opened up.

Survival’s Director, Stephen Corry said, ‘Oil and gas drilling in uncontacted tribes’ reserves make a mockery of Peru’s new law. It also risks jeopardizing the government’s promise to protect uncontacted tribes, who are especially vulnerable’.

Half of the Nahua died after their land was first opened up by Shell for oil exploration in the 1980s. Today, uncontacted tribes still living in the region are at extreme risk of succumbing to diseases brought in by outsiders.

Juanes Recognized for His Humanitarian Work for Landmine Victims

The Hershey Company presented the Vision Award to international musician and philanthropist, Juanes, at the 25th Annual Hispanic Heritage Awards (HHAs) on September 15, 2011 at The John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.  With multi-platinum worldwide sales of more than 15 million albums, Juanes has received a GRAMMY and a record-setting 17 LATIN GRAMMYS throughout his career and was recently named Latin Music’s Star of the Decade by Billboard Magazine.

At this year’s 25th anniversary ceremony, The Hershey Company presented Juanes with the prestigious Vision Award. The award recognizes Juanes’ contributions as a global philanthropist and his extensive work through his Fundacion Mi Sangre organization that fights against the use of anti-personnel mines, as well as provides assistance and rehabilitation services to landmine victims.

“Juanes is an artist in every sense of the word.  His talents extend far and beyond the stage and bright lights.  It’s refreshing to have an artist of Juanes’ caliber use his voice and platform as a vehicle for change, and most importantly, as an advocate for peace,” said Maria-Esmeralda Paguaga, Executive Producer of the Hispanic Heritage Awards. In addition to his work with Fundacion Mi Sangre, Juanes is a co-founder of the Paz Sin Fronteras (Peace Without Borders) concerts, which seek to unite common citizens across borders and advocate for the continued use of non-violent conflict resolution. Due to his philanthropic work and successful music career, Juanes was named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2005.

“The Hershey Company is dedicated to the Latino community and to making positive differences in the communities where we live and work,” said Bert Alfonso, Chief Financial Officer of The Hershey Company. “We applaud Juanes’ outstanding global philanthropic contributions and support the Hispanic Heritage Foundation as we share and celebrate their mission to identify, inspire, prepare and position Latino leaders to make a strong and constructive impact in their environment.”

The Hershey Company is a Medallion Sponsor of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, a leadership organization which honors notable Latinos who have distinguished themselves in various fields and made an impact on America through the Hispanic Heritage Awards. The Awards are considered among the highest honor by Hispanics in the United States. Currently in its 25th year, the annual program was created by the White House in 1987 to establish Hispanic Heritage Month in America.  In addition to Juanes, the 2011 Hispanic Heritage Awards Honorees include: Roberto Gomez Bolanos (Legend), Jorge Vergara (Business), Dr. Elizabeth Molina Morgan (Math & Science) and Dr. Juan Andrade (Leadership) among others.

The House Judiciary Committee began marking up Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX)‘s E-Verify bill this week, leading us to run a whole series of blog posts explaining how harmful, unproductive, and ineffective the bill is. 

E-Verify is an incredibly flawed government database system that is supposed to keep track of who is and isn’t allowed to work in the U.S., but its glitches mean that it regularly flags lawful, legal workers.  Forcing all businesses across the nation to use E-Verify would lead to 770,000 legal workers—including native-born Americans—to lose their jobs, and more than 1 million workers would have to fix their records. 

In “honor” of this nonsense, and in honor of it being the weekend,  America’s Voice have pulled together a few fun clips that remind us of the echo chamber around these GOP legislators: 

South Park, “They Tuk Our Jerbs!...Durka Durrrr!” (Yup, the economy’s a problem; let’s point fingers and cast blame instead of really getting down to do something about it.)


Family Guy, “Okay, come on over.”

The Daily Show, ‘Rick Perry said something sensible on immigration! Boooooo!’ (They also cheered for the death of people who didn’t have health care.  The Tea Partiers are really out there.)

Task Force Members Resign Rather Than Support Flawed Secure Comm Program

Task Force Members Resign Rather Than Support Flawed Secure Comm Program

Photo: Secure Communities

Click Here to Enlarge Photo

Amid a flutter of resignations, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Advisory Council Task Force today released its report and recommendations on Secure Communities, a fingerprint sharing immigration enforcement program that has eroded public trust in law enforcement.

The recommendations were not signed by several of the task force’s 20 members, some of whom called for the suspension of the program in order to correct fundamental flaws.

Below is a statement from Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center:

“Today’s report unsurprisingly outlines several major and systemic flaws with Secure Communities. Although the task force members rightly identified many of this program’s detractions, which sever crucial ties between communities of color and law enforcement and decimate public trust between immigrant communities and the Obama administration, they failed to make the crucial call to terminate this harmful program. We commend those task force members who chose to resign rather than add their names to this incomplete report and endorse DHS’s repeated attempts to tinker with a program that is beyond repair. Unless Secure Communities is halted, it will continue to wreak havoc on the communities many of the members of the task force care about.

“The task force identified a few substantive recommendations that would reduce the number of people caught in Secure Communities’ dragnet. Unfortunately, past experience shows that when it comes to this pernicious immigration enforcement program, such recommendations go under advisement, and are never actually implemented. “Ultimately, even major changes to Secure Communities will not restore public trust in law enforcement. The Obama administration must abandon this fundamentally flawed program.

Enforcement-only immigration policies may score political points among a few voters, but it is already leading to anger and apathy among many voters who recognize these policies come at the price of community engagement and public safety. We urge DHS and its task force members to instead expend their time, intellect, and efforts on ending our country’s mass immigration enforcement-only strategies and work to increase prosperity and true safety in our communities.”

Five of the Nineteen Task Force Members have resigned.

Peruvian military officials say two troops have been killed in a helicopter attack by Shining Path rebels.

They say the soldiers were patrolling the Apurimac and Ene River valley when they came under fire Wednesday.

Authorities say Shining Path rebels have ties to the drug trade in the valley area.

The Maoist Shining Path rebels began their insurgency in 1980, eventually killing tens of thousands of people.  Violence declined sharply after the capture and conviction of its founder, Abimael Guzman, in 1992, but the rebels continue to carry out smaller attacks.

Attacks have occurred primarily in remote areas used to produce coca, the raw material used in cocaine.

Ortiz vs Mayweather WBC Welterweight World Championship Tonight

Ortiz vs Mayweather WBC Welterweight World Championship Tonight

It’s the biggest against the best and it doesn’t get much better or brighter. Boxing’s biggest star, undefeated Floyd “Money” Mayweather, and its newest star, WBC Welterweight World Champion “Vicious” Victor Ortiz, will align their super powers when they meet in “STAR POWER: Mayweather vs. Ortiz.” The mega-fight, which will be contested for Ortiz’s WBC Welterweight World Championship, will take place Saturday, Sept. 17 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev. and will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.

Star Power, promoted by Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions, and sponsored by Cerveza Tecate, DeWALT and AT&T, falls on Mexican Independence Day weekend and is already being touted as boxing’s biggest and best match-up of 2011. It’s a contest of galactic proportions that will have fans worldwide waiting in a Milky Way of anticipation for one of the most intriguing and exciting fights in recent years.

One of the most recognized athletes in the world today, the highly decorated Mayweather, who is undefeated as well as a six-Time and five-division world champion, announced his return via Twitter (@floydmayweather) earlier this month and is being commended for pursuing a fight against the young, hard-hitting southpaw Ortiz, 10 years his junior and undoubtedly one of his most challenging contests to date.

“I am excited to get back in the ring because Victor Ortiz is a great challenge for me,” said Mayweather, who will be returning to the ring after a 16-month layoff. “Ortiz is a young, fast, and very strong champion so this is not going to be easy, but I will prepare myself with the same dedication I have always had for my fights and show fans around the world that I am the best boxer in the world today. I am also looking forward to fighting on Mexican Independence Day weekend. I love all my fans and know I have a lot of Mexican fans cheering for me too.”

Ortiz, who captured his current WBC Welterweight title with a dazzling performance in a victory over Andre Berto April 16, said, “I have always said that I would be the first fighter to beat Floyd Mayweather and now that I have my chance, and to do it on a weekend that celebrates the independence of the Mexican people, is an amazing blessing for me. I have worked so hard to become a champion and to show the world that I am the best. I am not going to let anyone take that away from me. I’m confident that I will walk away from this fight with my belt and a new title…the first to defeat Floyd Mayweather.”

“The excitement surrounding Floyd’s return has been amazing and is always an indication of his popularity and drawing power among fans worldwide,” said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. “I wasn’t surprised when Floyd said he wanted to fight Ortiz because he likes to be challenged when he fights and Victor, with the skills and heart of a young lion, is exactly that type of challenge he relishes. I have no doubt that the stars will sparkle, shine and collide in that ring on September 17 and that the sports world is going to be in for a great fight. We welcome Floyd’s return as his fights are always sensational.”

Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, said, “The stars aligned for this true mega-fight and there is no doubt that September 17 will be the biggest boxing event of 2011 anywhere in the world. When Floyd Mayweather fights, everyone watches as he continues to set the bar for most pay-per-view buys and this fight will be no different. He is also going to be challenged by a very special talent in the young, strong and highly motivated World Champion Victor Ortiz, who knows that a win over the pound-for-pound champion will catapult him into superstardom. It’s a showdown of two great champions colliding and one that I can’t wait to see.”

2011 National Hispanic Month Theme: Many Backgrounds, Many Stories, One American Spirit

2011 National Hispanic Month Theme: Many Backgrounds, Many Stories, One American Spirit

Click Here to Enlarge Photo

United States of America has proclaimed National Hispanic Heritage Month September 15 – October 15. In 1968, Public Law 90-468 authorized the president to proclaim National Hispanic Heritage Week each year. The 100th Congress enacted Public Law 100-402, which extended the observance from a week to a month. The annual observance is now a 31-day period beginning on September 15 and ending on October 15.

        THIS YEAR’s 2011 Theme: Many Backgrounds, Many Stories, One American Spirit. It is a month which Hispanics are given the unique opportunity to highlight historical and cultural contributions by Hispanic Americans. For purposes of this celebration the term Hispanic includes persons with ancestry from the countries of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela, Brazil, Belize and the Virgin Islands.

        SEPTEMBER and OCTOBER cover a wide range of independence days for Latin American countries. MEXICO celebrates their independence on September 16 and El Día de la Raza (Columbus Day) is observed on October 12. Chile’s independence celebration is held on September 18, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua all celebrate their independence on September 15.

        DESPITE the fact that the United States government enforces its unfair immigration policies, Hispanics from all backgrounds are making contributions to secure America as a strong country. American Hispanics love their native country, but they are loyal to the United States of America. Many young Hispanics have joined the military and have sacrificed their life for America.

        HISTORIAN WILLIAM GUILLERMO LUNA is quick to point out that there has been a lot of Mexican immigrants that have made contributions to America, namely, Leonardo [Leo Najo] Alaniz, a baseball pioneer born in La Laija, Nuevo Leon; Pedro Armendariz, an actor in Mexico and U.S. born in Mexico City; Brigadier General Robert Cardenas, Aviation Pioneer [Merida, Yucatan]; Dolores Del Rio, actress, Mexico & U.S. [Durango]; Lorenzo De Zavala, Vice President, Republic of Texas [Bahia/Goliad]; Dr. Hector P. Garcia, Civil Rights Pioneer [Llera, Tamaulipas], SSGT. Macario Garcia, WWII Medal of Honor [Villa de Castano]; Honorable Edward Hidalgo, Secretary of Navy [Mexico City]Image

Jose Mendoza Lopez, WWII Medal of Honor Hero [Veracruz]; Cesar Millan, Dog Behavior Specialist, [Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico]; Dr. Mario Molina, Nobel Prize, Chemistry [Mexico City]; Ricardo Montalban, Actor in Mexico & U.S. [Mexico City]; Roman Navarro, Actor-Silent Movies [Durango]; Carlos Palomino, World Welterweight Boxing Champion [San Luis/Rio Colorado, Sonora]; Sgt.
