The Texas Link to the Battle of Cinco de Mayo
On May 5th 1862 in the city of Puebla the 8000 invading forces of Maximilliano the Archduke of Austria, would encounter a force of4000 determined Mexican troops led by Ignacio Zaragoza. We have all heard the story of how General Zaragoza who was born in Goliad, Texas would successfully defeat the French invaders at the Battle of Puebla, but that is only half of the story.

Will Latinos Get it Done for Texas Democrats?
Essentially, the Latino in charge of Latino outreach for the Republican Party was so scared of Latino voters that he quit. And it was actually a smart move.

NAFTA Kills Jobs, and Helps Immigrants?
A labor union in the U.S. has filed a complaint in Mexico against a law that was ratified in the state of Alabama.

Possible Agreement on Immigration? Yes, but...
It's not comprehensive immigration reform, nor is it the DREAM Act, but it's something. True, it benefits big business and the immigrant is the happy collateral beneficiary; and it's just an agreement betweeen two senators to move forward. And we all know what that does, and doesn't mean.

The Death of Anastasio Hernandez:The Silence is an Outrage
The tape shows what looks to be more than twelve Border Patrol officers beating a man who was handcuffed and hogtied on the ground - tasing him, kicking him, hitting him with billy clubs.

Lamar Smith: A Political Double Standard
He is immovable in his immigration stance, far from his own "half a loaf is better than none, and even a slice beats going hungry" ideology.  One has to ask, what gives?

Supreme Court Ruling Could be Bad Karma for GOP
...they're still bouncing inside their message bubble, giddy at the prospect of winning an immigration battle. Their next bet, if I were them, would be to hope Latinos don't vote come November.
