DREAM Now Letters Recap: The CHC Has To Stand With Migrant Youth, Not Against Us

July 30th, 2010 · 3 Comments

By Kyle de Beausset: Today marks the completion of the second week of the DREAM Now series. I am sorry I was not able to get a letter out on Wednesday.  Too much travel and not enough sleep led me to come down with a soar throat and a fever on Tuesday.  Thankfully, I’m starting […]

Seneca: Latinos and The Federal Reserve

May 1st, 2010 · 7 Comments

The only other agency of the federal government where Latinos have not become commonly employed nor have an appointed presence on the governing boards besides the intelligence community is the Federal Reserve System and its myriad components. At the national level, the Fed’s Board of Governors has only seven members appointed by the president and […]

Some reactions to President Obama’s State of Union Address

January 28th, 2010 · 7 Comments

I was able to catch most of the State of the Union last night, and before the President even entered the gallery, I was struck by a few things. One being Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez in her “Nancy Reagan red” suit yet again. She loves red suits, and she’s always in an aisle seat for the […]

It has been a busy week, but here are some items that I have been following in the past few days. This piece from the Huffington Post caught my attention about Villar (as many like to call him) or Mayor V. It speculates that Villar may be holding out to run for the Senate in […]

Has Obama “dropped the ball” on immigration?

September 27th, 2009 · 15 Comments

Yesterday, I read this piece by Ruben Navarrette titled Obama drops ball on immigration. I scratched my head and then thought to myself, “I don’t think President Obama ever really picked up the ball on immigration since he has occupied the White House.” We have seen evidence of this by his

August 4th, 2009 · 9 Comments

The National Republican Congressional Committee released a list last week of the 70 seats it intends to target for next year’s midterm elections, and Rep. Loretta Sanchez is the only Latina on the list. This doesn’t surprise me since Rep. Sanchez “has sponsored 62 bills since Jan 7, 1997 of which 58 haven’t made it […]

Rep. Joe Baca & his “version” of the DREAM Act

July 25th, 2009 · 10 Comments

The following is another guest blog post by Sorjuana. Recently, I have blogged about Rep. Loretta Sanchez’s failure to co-sponsor the DREAM Act, despite it being supported by both Republicans and Democrats and by the City Council of Santa Ana (symbolically).

Mid-week updates

May 20th, 2009 · 24 Comments

As I predicted on Gustavo Arellano’s Four O’Clock Tuesdayhour on KPFK yesterday, Gil Cedillo effectively shot himself in the foot with his campaign spending and negative mailers, costing him the election to Judy Chu. Chu will face a runoff for the Congressional seat once held by now Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis. So much for Congressman […]
