folks think that the only political demands being made by latino voters is immigration reform. nah, they're demanding much more than that.
they want an increase in education funding for "hispanic serving institutions"
health care insurance for illegal immigrants
job creation for manufacturing and infrastructure (which, in case we haven't noticed, have benefited latinos more over the past decade or so when these jobs were being held by black folks before)
political clout (more of their people represented in government) in order to implement their agenda.
etc. etc. etc.
the latino constituency demands will be met with the bargaining power of their vote. meanwhile black folks steady proving our loyalty to a party that is not concerned with our interests, content reaping the residuals benefits from lobbyists fighting for their interests.
on the bright side, latinos social and fiscal agendas mirror ours in a lot of ways so we can be happy with the scraps.
