The November elections may well be the most important presidential contest in U.S. history. The coveted "Latino Vote" is in play, and will be consequential to the outcome of these elections. How has the Latino community faired under the first term of the Obama Administration? How would we fare under a Romney Administration? Will Prosecutorial Discretion and Deferred Action satisfy the Latino Voter? How will the Supreme Court decision on Arizona's SB 1070 affect other states' efforts to enact anti-immigrant laws? With the current economic crisis is Comprehensive Immigration Reform and the DREAM Act dead? What about democracy in Latin America?
