WASHINGTON D.C (November 8, 2016)_ CASA in Action will hold a rally and press conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday in front of the White House to congratulate the President-elect and set course for issues that will impact the immigrant community in the years to come.
Whichever administration makes it to the White House, it is clear they will have to deal with the issue of immigration policy in the Congress, the Executive Branch and perhaps even the Supreme Court once again.
“We are ready to get back to work on passing immigration reform with a new Administration,” said Executive Director Gustavo Torres.
All indications suggest that Latinos are making a huge difference in the Elections. Almost 1 million Hispanics have voted early this election, nearly double early vote numbers from 2012.
Nate Cohn from the New York Times’ The Upshot wrote yesterday:
This year, Hispanic voters, perhaps motivated by Donald J. Trump’s policy proposals (including deportation) and harsh language aimed at undocumented Hispanic immigrants, really might decide this election.
Early voting data unequivocally indicates that Hillary Clinton will benefit from a long awaited surge in Hispanic turnout, vastly exceeding the Hispanic turnout from four years ago.
