Trump’s immigration reform should start with 2013 Senate version

Good luck if you know where President Donald J. Trump stands on immigration reform.

Politics aside, Latinos have a reason to celebrate 2016

Who would have thought at the beginning of the year that a brash New York billionaire would become president? Or, that an icon in the Spanish-language music world would be dead?

Opinion

We welcome 2017 with a positive outlook

A new year always provides an opportunity for a fresh start, and a chance to throw all the bad things that happened the previous year into the trash bin of history. Those bad memories should never threatened our positive outlook to a new calendar year.
