2010 & 2012- Latino Voters Prepare to Stand Up and be Counted

Latino’s constitute the largest minority group in the U.S. at 15.8 percent. This in addition to the fact that Latino participation in elections is growing faster than any other group make them a force to be dealt with.
Immigration reform is expected to be Latino’s number one issue going into the November mid-term elections. Although Washington insiders believe that immigration reform is not likely before the November election, Obama’s speech last week was seen as trying to reassure angry Latinos.
America’s voice, a pro-immigration reform group predicts Latino voters will have a direct effect in 37 congressional races. With four out of five undocumented workers coming from Mexico and Latin America, candidates are likely to be courting the Latinos with talk of immigration reform.
