Sometimes, it is impossible to stay silent regarding one’s own friends. This is one such time.

Labor leader and civil rights activist Dolores Huerta is standing by President Barack Obama on his decision to delay executive action on immigration and is asking the immigrant community to have patience.
“We have to look at the big picture and don’t get caught up in saying we want it now,” she said, referring to action on immigration. “We’ve been waiting—we are a community that can wait. And we have to have faith in our president, because the Republicans have shown their hand. We know what they want to do.”Details

In an imaginary world where video game players were only allowed play characters of their own ethnicity, Latinos would be screwed.
They could choose between Victor Gonzalez, one of the main thugs of “Los Carnales” who has survived a dozen attacks by the Vice King. Or the more sophisticated Carlos Oliveira, a mercenary from South America on the verge of a nervous breakdown during the zombie crisis on Earth.
These not particularly attractive examples are part of the average 3 percent of video game characters recognized as Latino.Details
It’s no news to anyone that Latinas don’t get much diversity of roles in popular entertainment media.

One year after becoming U.S. citizens, many new Americans say citizenship has changed their lives for the better – from giving them a chance to go to college and get a better job, to being able to vote.
“Before I became a U.S. citizen, I felt like I was an outsider, a person without a voice who can’t really choose to live the life that I would like to see,” said Jinzhi Cang, a 73-year-old Chinese American resident of Houston who became a citizen last September.Details

In some way, the immigrant created the American Dream. It wasn’t a native-born idea. It began in the 19th century as immigrants — mainly Irish and German — began coming to the United States and describing their experience as transformative. They were no longer living the lives of their parents and grandparents.Details
