[OP-ED]: Trump is but the latest politician to serenade Youngstown

 08/04/2017 - 08:03
It’s no surprise that Trump returned to the familiar theme of demonizing Latino immigrants. The surprise is that he chose to do it in Youngstown of all places -- a city with a minuscule immigrant population, located in a state where the Latino population is just 3.7 percent. EFE

Youngstown again? As an avid spectator of politics, I’ve been hearing about that city in the Mahoning Valley of northeast Ohio for decades. Although it’s home to just 64,000 people, Youngstown gets more than its share of attention from politicians, media, filmmakers, and even a poetic singer/songwriter from Freehold, New Jersey.

No es de sorprender que Trump volviera a su tema familiar de demonizar a los inmigrantes latinos. La sorpresa es que escogiera hacerlo justamente en Youngstown--una ciudad con una población inmigrante minúscula, ubicada en un estado en que la población latina representa sólo un 3,7 por ciento. EFE

¿Otra vez Youngstown? Como ávido espectador político, he oído hablar de esa ciudad en el Valle Mahoning del nordeste de Ohio durante décadas. Aunque allí residen sólo 64.000 personas, Youngstown recibe bastante atención de los políticos, los medios, los cineastas y hasta de un poético cantautor de Freehold, New Jersey.

On Thursday the House of Representatives is scheduled to hold two "crucial votes" on immigration and national security bills, both sponsored by Republican Congressmen Bob Goodlatte of Virginia. One of the bills, dubbed Kate's Law, is designed to increase the penalties for immigrants convicted of certain crimes who, after being deported, have returned to the US illegally.
