In the wake of the 2012 Presidential election, the Hispanic voting bloc has become an increasingly important one with major ramifications on our nation. Every day and on almost any network, one can witness an intelligent and prominent Latino voice offering perspective on the issues of the day. Immigration reform is heating up, more Latinos are represented in Congress than ever before, Democrats are pushing legislation on various fronts dealing with Latino issues and the Republican National Committee recently announced outreach to Hispanics as their single biggest focal point in the years ahead.
