Latin American Herald Tribune - Money and the Kids, Hispanics ... | Hispanic Immigration | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON – The two chief concerns of Hispanics in the United States are having enough money to make it to the end of the month and having time to spend with the kids, according to a Telemundo/NBC/WSJ survey published Friday.
Parker Cruz Van Zante's comment, October 3, 2013 12:27 PM
I do believe it is a concern on how hispanics do not make enough money to support common things like family and your home. Economy wise it effects all of us and is just not happening to hispanics. Have to learn how to focus on the needs rather than wants. With growing population in America and Canada it can effect both of us, just have to see how far it goes.

I agree with Parker that money problems affect all of the US, not just hispanics. People that need extra money have to sacrifice time with children which is not alway s fair to them. It seems the rich keep getting richer and the poor get poorer.

Five personal stories of life in mixed-status families | Multi-American | Hispanic Immigration | Scoop.it

What is it like to live in a family in which you’re a U.S. citizen, but your spouse, one of your parents, a sibling, an uncle or aunt, even one of your children is undocumented?


During the past week, Multi-American has presented a series of first-person stories from people in families like these. Families of mixed immigration status are surprisingly common. In 2009, the Pew Hispanic Center estimated there were 8.8 million people living in mixed-status families in the United States.

It's no surprise that the people of Miama have grown to the culture of the immigrants. First, theres more of them, you would be surrounded by there culture and language everyday. I know for a fact that the place you live, the environment you are surrounded by, changes you. The way you talk, the music you listen too, and sometimes even religion.
Parker Cruz Van Zante's comment, October 4, 2013 11:57 AM
*Miami..... But yes its no surprise that the people of "miami" have had different culture from latinos and immigrants. Cubans would be there also because cuba is so close. I do believe an area full of latinos are highly affected by culture. Especially when the population are mostly hispanics rather than mostly americans.

Ronald Reagan: No Third Party Republicans No Compromise on Values

http://www.RightFace.us Ronald Reagan Says No To a Possible Third Party Run and that Republicans should Not Compromise on Their Values.



I tend to agree with Reagan on this matter. After the tragic loss to Obama last week, many are trying to figure out what the GOP needs to do to reinvent itself and attract minority voters, since Obama won the majority of Hispanic, women, Asian and Black votes. Many think we need comprehensive immigration reform or some sort of amnesty or some other way to pander to these groups, while ignoring social conservative values&principles such as the prolife cause and traditional marriage.


However, the problem is not social nor fiscal conservatives...the problem is the bias media covering up the truth, encouraging lies and propaganda to mischaracterize the Conservative party. The biased media has brainwashed and misinformed the public, along with the secular left of Hollywood who has pushed the anything goes mentality on society. In result our countries leaders and policies are moving away from the traditional morals and values our country was founded upon. Until conservatives take back the message from liberals in schools, movies, music and the mainstream news future generations will slide further away from social conservatives and traditional values. An uneducated and misinformed electorate are vulnerable to the entitlement policies of the left and it will only get worse as the economy worsens and more become dependent on the government. [One example of the media coverup:Reports on the looming 'fiscal cliff' were kept to a minimum during the campaign season, up until after Obama's re-election on November 6, then the mainstream media started reporting on it more frequently http://sulia.com/channel/all-politics-causes/f/0f0f0296-2853-4575-bed5-d0b1f4fc3ac3/?source=fb ]


Conservatives need to stand strong on their beliefs but fight the media, &education bias by taking back control of the message and educate the public. They have a good chance of doing this, especially when the people realize the govt doesn't create jobs nor prosperity. When the people realize this and the govt runs out of other peoples money they will listen to conservatives. This will happen by 2016, but conservatives need to begin now to take control of the message and educate people about the realities of bad economic policies and reach out to the poor through charity, education and jobs.


"The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president."


***Regarding comprehensive immigration reform as the proposed solution to reaching Latino voters***


The Liberty and Freedom Foundation on Facebook proposed the following:

"IT'S TIME CONSERVATIVES TAKE THE LEAD ON IMMIGRATION REFORM BEFORE LIBERALS GRANT FULL AMNESTY - Folks like it or not we need to take the lead on immigration reform and put a plan out there that is not only viable, but guarantees full border security. If not, you can bet Barack Obama will grant full amnesty and buy votes for the next 20 years. We think that there are many plans that could work, but potentially a start is to advance a policy that before anything guarantees complete border security and protection. Once that is complete then we look at those who are here illegally. If they want a pathway to residency they need to a. have been here at least a minimum amount of time. b. need to pass an english proficiency exam. No tests in foreign languages, only english. c. spent at least 5 years on a "probation period" where they can not collect any government benefits, commit any crime, or fail to pay taxes. If any of that happens they lose any chance at residency. Once the probation period is over they get in line for permanent residency behind all those who have applied legally. Additionally, we need to modify our already existing H-1A and B visa program to make it easier to grant guest worker visas instead of residency, so those coming can be in the system. Lastly, we need to make the process easier for those trying to come here legally, especially those with high tech skills. If we do this we can ensure we secure the border, and do not cede a voting bloc to Liberals for a generation.

Click like if you think we need to take the lead on Immigration reform before Barack Obama grants blanket amnesty to 12 million who are here illegally, and thereby guarantee those votes to Democrats for a generation."


However, the border must be secure first and our economy improved or we will only end up with more on welfare.This idea sounds similar to what Graham and Schumer are proposing, but until the economy is fixed we can't afford more people and more unemployed.I do agree though we need to stop Obama from enforcing full amnesty and citizenship or we'll never win an election again.His backdoor amnesty helped him steal the election this time.


Michelle Malkin makes a good point about illegal immigration and reform here: michellemalkin:The amnesty-maniacs'promise of“securing border 1st”is a Kabuki compromise.Always has been&will be=> http://t.co/SuXRIX4h


Blogger, Aaron Gardner of RedState, believes the GOP needs to organize better and improve the infrastructure of the party through better outreach, rather than pandering to minority voters and ignoring social conservatives. http://www.redstate.com/2012/11/12/our-path-forward-is-not-moderation-it-is-infrastructure/   

He concludes:

"Building the infrastructure in the individual states and leaving them in control will allow for a diverse system that can play to their individual strengths in state level races while also providing a conduit for coordination at the national level.

This infrastructure should be fueled by causes, not policy, not white papers, not poll tested messaging meant to peel away small portions of your opponents base. Causes are what inspire people to act en masse, a candidate with no clear cause is bound to lose.

We do have a serious problem with our ability to reach voters, especially minorities. Immigration policy has been a thorn in our side and whether you support amnesty or a border fence, if you are a Republican, you are still a bigot. No matter whether one is for, against, or evolving on the issue, they are sure to be wrong. This suggests there is something greater than policy positions at play.

We can choose to moderate our positions on issues like gay marriage, immigration, abortion and more, but simply changing policies does not guarantee any lasting relationship with supporters of those policies. Additionally, this unnecessarily limits the battle field at the state level to economics, and contrary to recent popular belief, this isn’t enough to win an election.

Instead, I suggest we champion our causes and build an infrastructure to engage. We need to take a page from the Special Operations community and train force multipliers who can go into communities where we are not engaged and meet these voters where they are. We need to do this not to attain forgiveness for our bigotry, we need to do this because the conservative message of freedom and opportunity espoused by Reagan and Kemp is exactly what many of these people came to America for in the first place.

In addition to minority outreach, this infrastructure should have a focus on properly training activists in the state. Looking back on election day, I am stunned by how many poll watchers I saw with cameras. It gave me a lot of hope that we would be able to break some big election day stories. One snag, many of these hard working activists had no clue how to get a video off of their phone and uploaded to either youtube or a shared cloud drive."


A follower/friend on G+ made some good points as well about what the GOP needs to do to reinvent itself or reach out to minorities:

Marla Hughes
"*Here's my idea. I'm poor, as you all know. Before condemning people for being poor, sometimes it's necessary to walk in their shoes for a bit. We're not good at managing time, money or even our lives. Training and education are needed. Assistance after that in limited ways. Quite a few of us WANT to be able to function on our own. Look at welfare reform in the 90's. Very successful because it empowered the poor to not be poor.

Put aside the race and gender issues for a minute. We're losing in URBAN areas, which have higher concentrations of single mothers and minorities. Look at it like Reagan did, not how the media wants you to. Their speciality is dividing us from others. Alienating us so they can demean us and be believed.

If you're too poor to move out of a depressed area, you get by how you can including taking government handouts you'd rather not need so badly. Jack Kemp started Enterprise Zones under Reagan in urban areas. And they worked. Not just to help people, but to win voters. IMO if we want more conservatives in urban areas, we need to get in there and not just talk to them but help them in reasonable ways. Independent of government.
It's working in Africa and Afghanistan.

Paul Ryan had Kemp and Bill Bennett as his mentors.
My plan would have conservatives setting up these enterprise zones with Ryan (or anyone else who wants to both help the poor and win more conservative voters) involved and then running in 2016 ON the enterprise zones.
Poof. Accusations of racism, genderism and classism are counteracted in advance.

This video demonstrates exactly what I mean. https://plus.google.com/u/0/103087425533147519173/posts/Gmmbv2rBJzo

Their votes didn't count because they're in a heavily blue area. Help them and we can turn it bright red and BETTER, we can help them permanently."


The GOP should have run this video in swing states http://youtu.be/fdTihf2_GGM ;

....hopefully the people in this video can become part of the TeaParty and get minorities to realize liberal policies keep the poor down. Sadly some people never learn, like the liberals who control California, while most counties voted Romney, the populated big cities are controlled by liberals...but I still believe Obama won through voter fraud, Obamas backdoor amnesty, media coverups and foreign donations. Http://obamavoterfraud.com 


In the end, it's not conservatism that needs to become more moderate or appeasing to minorities or other groups, but the GOP that needs to reach out to minorities through education, charity, jobs and the media. We have to counter the liberal propaganda message that the public is exposed to through every day life from childhood in schools through college and from the mainstream news media and Hollywood movies and music. The liberals have emboldened their power over our country through these tools at least the past 30 years, and conservatives are paying the price for apathy now. We MUST take back control of these areas before future generations are indoctrinated to believe in the secular, liberal policies and social beliefs of the Democratic party. Whether we can do this before 2016 is yet to be seen, but we must start with educating the electorate regardless of party affiliation that the economic policies of liberalism are sure to destroy our country and any prosperity.


The Democratic party of today is not the party of JFK, it no longer values traditional American values and beliefs of our Founding Fathers. They are indoctrinated to believe social justice, redistribution of wealth and socialism are the solution to poverty. Instead they are breeding more people who lack the will to become self-reliant and independent and more people who want to live off of someone else's success and hard work. This is a recipe for economic disaster because government entitlement and dependence leads to a weaker people and weaker economy and a weaker America. The American Dream is dying and while the re-election of Obama may have felt like a win to the liberals,  in reality it was not only a loss for Conservatives, but the American way of life.


Finally, those who come here legally need to be willing to assimilate, work hard and contribute to society as productive citizens and not become part of the government class of dependents. I also think those who don't contribute to society as law abiding tax payers and live on welfare,government dependency, should not be able to vote! Those who are able to vote themselves money/entitlements are what is contributing to the fall of America and the end of the American Dream.



"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”
― Alexis de Tocqueville (1805 – 1859)


When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.~~Benjamin Franklin

The immigrants in Tuscaloosa Alabama are leaving because of a new law that makes it ileagal to hire people who are there ileagaly. The Alabama law states the any police man can arrest anyone suspected to be a ilegal immigrant. This is the second time this year where a rapid decrease in ilegal immigrants have left Tuscoloosa. The first is after the tornado that hit Tuscoloosa.

This article is about how after the big tornado in Tuscaloosa they passed a law saying they cant hire a illegal immigrants at all and they have to check very hard to make sure.

Yes very true colton, this article is about a tornado in Tuscaloosa they passed a law saying they cant hire latinos aka hispanics. I think that they should hire Latinos because they are important. With the increasing population we will see how it will effect the future. Also it is happening in Canada so they could go through the same thing.
