Latino politics

By Angelo Falcón

This past week was unusual for the Latino community — we experienced back-to-back national political victories. First, the community mobilized to finally get the US Senate to confirm the appointment of the first Puerto Rican woman to serve as an Ambassador. Then, after much Latino pressure over the years, President Obama finally ordered a temporary lifting of the deportations of Dreamers. But another thing they had in common, but not mentioned much, was the role of Florida Senator Marco Rubio.
