ImmigrationWorks USA hosts a panel discussion on the Latino vote, and what it means for public policy.
Latino turnout was up this year and Latinos voted overwhelmingly for President Obama. The discussion will look at how Latinos voted, where the population is increasing the fastest, and the important policy issues to Latino voters that are sure to come up in the next session of Congress.
Alfonso Aguilar, Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles; Stephen Dinan, The Washington Times; Rodolfo Espino, Arizona State University; Dan Restrepo, Obama presidential campaign; and Roberto Suro, University of Southern California, participated in a panel discussion on these issues.
The sponsor, ImmigrationWorks USA, describes itself as "a national organization advancing immigration reform that works for all Americans – employers, workers and citizens. Its twin goals: to educate the public about the benefits of immigration and build a mainstream grassroots constituency in favor of better law – business owners and others from across America willing to speak out and demand an overhaul."
