In March, for the first time ever, the official population of California will be 39-percent Latino, nudging past the 38.8-percent of state residents who are white non-Hispanic and far more than the comparatively small Asian American and African American demographics....

“On election day 2012, there were 53 million Latinos in the US – 17.2-percent of the population,” wrote Rory Carroll of the Guardian. “But they accounted for just 10.8-percent of eligible voters and 8.4-percent of actual voters. Furthermore, half lived in Texas and California, which don’t swing presidential races.”

Dream Activist
Hi Peter
Today, Elvira Arellano presented herself at the U.S. Port of Entry in San Diego. She is asking for permission to come home. Elvira is asking for Parole, this means she could be denied and deported, on the spot. Sign this petition & call; let's bring Elvira home!
I don't know about you, but the news about Elvira Arellano coming home with the rest of the #Reform150 families has me all excited and unable to sleep. I remember watching her story on TV, and how in 2007 I still felt a little bit of fear saying I was undocumented, so watching her fighting so publicly was pretty awesome.
Then a few months later, ICE raided a factory a few blocks away from my school. I remember thinking "what's next?" or "who's next?". It felt like ICE was retaliating against those who spoke out. So, I personally feel like the fact that Elvira is coming home is a HUGE deal.
SIGN THE PETITION: Bring Elvira Arellano Home
Elvira should never have been deported. When she was deported President Obama, then an Illinois Senator, said: "I've met with Elvira Arellano and her son, and I understand the challenges that they and millions of other undocumented immigrants face. . . If President Bush cannot lead on this issue, I will, by reviving our national discussion on comprehensive reform in my first year in the White House."
Now, as President Obama enters his 6th year in office we still don't have leadership on this issue. The President's administration continues to deport 400,000 Elvira's every year. Elvira's struggle represents the larger fight for our families. If this President is serious, if he wants to show us he means business then he needs to bring Elvira home.
Sign the Petition to Bring Elvira Home: Will Obama Deport Elvira a Second Time?
Elvira has given thousands the hope to keep fighting. Today we stand by her, and ask that you take immediate action to bring Elvira Arellano home.
Thank you,
Lizbeth Mateo
DreamActivist California
P.S. We happened to get the cell phone numbers (619-371-0071 & 619-876-3693) of the ICE directors in San Diego, shoot them a quick text message: "Parole Elvira!"

El Salvador Presidential Elections: Former Guerrilla Leader Sánchez Cerén Declared Winner via

Presidential candidate Salvador Sanchez Ceren, of the ruling Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN), right, and vice-presidential candidate Oscar Ortiz embrace each other as they wave to supporters after partial results were announced by election authorities in San Salvador, El Salvador, Sunday, March 9, 2014.

El Salvador's too-close-to-call presidential runoff election has raised competing claims of victory from Ceren, a former fighter for leftist guerrillas and the candidate of the once long-ruling conservative party that fought a civil war from 1980 to 1992, Norman Quijano but preliminary returns from nearly all polling stations showed Quijano a few thousands votes behind Ceren. The banner in the background reads: "Go forward El Salvador." (AP Photo/Esteban Felix)

Pope Francis is opening Monday, Feb. 17, 2014, the most critical week of his year-old papacy: Two commissions of inquiry on Vatican finance will report their recommendations for reform and preparations get under way for a summit on family issues that will deal with the widespread rejection by Catholics of church teaching on contraception, divorce and gay unions.

In between, Francis will preside over his first ceremony to formally welcome 19 new cardinals into the elite club of churchmen who will eventually elect his successor. In typical Francis style, the new cardinals hail from some of the poorest places on earth, including Haiti, Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast. (AP Photo/Alessandra Tarantino)
