Es posible entender la progresión de las estrategias racistas en el estado de Texas tan sólo revisando la historia del trato hacia los inmigrantes mexicanos.

The 36-year-old journalist made his remarks in the border city of Tijuana, where he presented the latest edition of his book "Oaxaca sitiada" (Besieged Oaxaca). He first wrote the work a decade ago to tell the story of a 2006 uprising in that impoverished, largely Indian-populated state against then-Gov. Ulises Ruiz.

 President Trump is an expert on some things. The North American Free Trade Agreement is not one of them.

[OP-ED]: No, America is not facing a race war

 05/25/2017 - 09:21
Whites are already seeing the descendants of some Asian and Latino immigrants as being similar to them. Consequently, whites treat them as white. This ‘whitening’ process will only increase in the future.”
English

For the past decade, the narrative of an upcoming Hispanic demographic tsunami has been alternately energizing and scaring people into believing that America will eventually become Latinized beyond recognition. 

Don’t worry, it isn’t going to happen.

[OP-ED]: The Comey firing reminds us of a bigger danger

English

I have tried to evaluate Donald Trump’s presidency fairly. I’ve praised him when he has appointed competent people to high office and expressed support for his policies when they seemed serious and sensible (even though this has drawn criticism from some quarters). But there has always been another aspect to this presidency lurking beneath the surface, sometimes erupting into full view as it did this week. Donald Trump, in much of his rhetoric and many of his actions, poses a danger to American democracy.

[OP-ED]: Haitianos: las nuevas víctimas de Trump

 05/10/2017 - 10:06
Los haitianos tenían razones más que suficientes para merecer el TPS tras el devastador terremoto de julio del 2010 que dejó 300,000 muertos y un millón y medio de heridos en su país. 
Spanish

Los partidarios de Donald Trump no son, ya lo sabemos, lo que llamaríamos gente buena. A cambio de su apoyo, ellos esperan que Trump presida sobre la administración más racista y antiinmigrante de que se tenga memoria.

[OP-ED]: How to laugh off the foolishness of Cinco de Mayo

 05/04/2017 - 08:25
Every May there is an increase in the ridiculousness of the costumes and advertising tie-ins for non-Hispanics to revel in -- and, perversely, it seems to coincide with how poorly actual Mexicans are treated in this country. File
English

Last year at this time, Donald Trump loomed over a taco bowl at Trump Tower and tweeted out the message: “Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!”
