A Fi2W town hall at The New School on Oct. 18 will explore the complex relationship between Latino voters and the presidential candidates.
In this podcast episode, Fi2W executive producer John Rudolph interviews freelance reporter Monika Fabian and LGBT Latino blogger Andrés Duque of Blabbeando about the Spanish-language media’s coverage of New York’s marriage equality law.
Monika Fabian writes in the New York Daily News that as the Grammys consolidates many of its categories, the awards competition is being accused of “cultural insensitivity.”
The freshman lawmaker from the Bronx says he’s his own man, even when it comes to supporters who helped him defeat the embattled Pedro Espada, once the highest ranking Hispanic in New York State government.
New York City Council member Ydanis Rodriguez says he will introduce a resolution calling on Governor Paterson to remove New York from the controversial immigration enforcement program known as Secure Communities.
It’s not clear if New York has the power to opt out of the federal program designed to find and deport undocumented immigrants who have committed serious crimes. Immigrant advocates say Secure Communities is being used against people who only committed minor offenses.
