[OP-ED]: Publishers shouldn’t confine Latino authors to just ‘immigrant stories’

 08/15/2017 - 11:41
According to Pew, 68 percent of all Hispanics speak English proficiently. And, in 2013, the center noted that they tipped over into preferring English-language news, signaling that there may be some mismatch between what Latino readers say they want and what they will actually consume.
