I've written about the Center for Immigration Studies, which is part of a network that started out as a "population control" group but has rebranded itself into "hardline immigration" over concerns of, I kid you not, Latin Americans' "high breeding rates"

NEW: Debates over who is Hispanic and who is not have fueled conversations about identity among Americans who trace their heritage to Latin America or Spain. So who is considered Hispanic in the United States? And how are they counted?

Don't confuse Latin Americans' quest for equality with a rejection of democracy. As they've seen in Venezuela, dictatorship makes things far worse. They want more responsive democracy, not military rule.

I would love to live in a world in which North Americans could be ignorant of South American politics, and it wouldn't matter. But like it or not, the US government has already been more determinant of Latin American history than any single Latin American nation. We're in it

It is genuinely remarkable that we've spent a whole news cycle on Ilhan Omar's two very short tweets about AIPAC influence and completely disregarded POTUS's grotesque apparent joke about the genocide of indigenous peoples or his casual bigotry re disastrous "Latin Americans."
