While Mexican government negotiators fight to save the North American Free Trade Agreement during talks in Washington, thousands of members of social and trade unions on Wednesday protested in Mexico City against the deal, claiming it marginalizes local farmers and hurts the country.
Mucho antes de que los rostros de Ana de la Reguera, Kate del Castillo, Penélope Cruz y Salma Hayek abandonaran las portadas de la ¡HOLA! y Vanidades para embellecer los tabloides de Hollywood y las colas de las salas ACME, había existido ya una belleza española de gran talento: Dolores del Río.
Acclaimed "Golden Age" Mexican actress Dolores del Río is honored today in a floral Google Doodle as gorgeous as she was. A society heiress, a mistress to Orson Welles, a victim of McCarthyism, a spokeswoman for UNICEF, and a beauty that reportedly slept "sixteen hours a day" to keep her youthful looks, here's a look at the life of Dolores.
Some Mexicans are turning to their faith to break their dependence on alcohol and/or drugs by taking oaths to the Virgin of Guadalupe, whose basilica in this capital receives some 200 religious faithful each day who swear to leave their addictions behind.
The Mexican Foreign Ministry confirmed that 25 of the 39 people who were left inside a trailer of a truck in San Antonio, Texas, are of Mexican nationality.
At the risk of setting off more fireworks, I’ve spent the days surrounding the Fourth of July trying to answer a question that has perplexed U.S. Latinos for generations. Whether the yardstick is starting businesses, creating jobs, spreading opportunity, serving in uniform or displaying optimism in hard times, America’s largest minority has shown time and again that we love this country.
But does the country love us back?
Thank you, thank you, thank you, President Trump.
I offer my gratitude because after years of being the last of my immigrant family members to undertake the naturalization process, my mother just took the oath to become a U.S. citizen.
What happens to immigrants who are deported and must start a life from scratch in their country of origin?
Picture this: Taco fixins in a tortilla cone. A flour tortilla cone, no less.
It comes to you courtesy of a new Food Network explainer video titled “Taco Cones are the New Tacos” in which a young Asian-American woman demonstrates how to “eat two tacos at the same time” by baking tortillas into an ice cream cone shape, filling them with ground beef and adding toppings.
One of the most intriguing mysteries of Latin American culture is what happened to the Maya civilization. How come after over 3,000 years of history, from about 2, 500 BC to 950 AD, most of the glorious Maya centers in Mesoamerica were abandoned? Before the arrival of the Europeans in the 1500’s magnificent cities like Tikal in Guatemala and Copán in Honduras had all but disappeared; left uninhabited, they were covered by thick jungle growth, hidden throughout the mountains and the lowlands.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Donald Trump’s supporters are not nice people, and they expect him to preside over the most racist and anti-immigrant administration in memory.
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!”
Miles de personas tomaron las calles en más de 200 ciudades de los Estados Unidos el pasado lunes para mostrar su descontento con las políticas anti-inmigración de Donald Trump. Algunas manifestaciones se volvieron violenteas y terminaron con una cuarentena de detenidos.
Thousands of people turned out in some 200 US cities on Monday to reject the immigration policies of President Donald Trump in huge demonstrations.
The former president of Mexico came to Philadelphia to talk about the wall, this time in a very different way.
Pennsylvania commands a dubious distinction.
Pennsylvania is the state with the nation’s second highest total of structurally deficient bridges according to a Federal Highway Administration analysis updated earlier this year.
With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy, I don’t know what makes someone a redneck. But, in the immigration debate, I have a pretty good idea of what makes someone a racist.
Mexicans who help build U.S. President Donald Trump's planned border wall would be acting immorally and should be deemed traitors, the Catholic Archdiocese of Mexico said
Widespread resentment toward Donald Trump and falling peso are the two main reasons, as reported in El País.
