Latino shock waves

Art Nuncio November 28th, 2012

 “Viva la comunidad!” (News, Peter Wright, Nov. 7, Oklahoma Gazette) claims that “five years after a controversial state law sought to reduce illegal immigration, the impact on OKC’s Latino community appears minimal.” But as the elections just proved, nothing could be further from the truth.

Laws like House Bill 1804 and others of its ilk galvanized Hispanics here and across the nation against the Republican Party and its proxies, possibly for many years to come. What the reporter should have said is that HB 1804 sent shock waves through Oklahoma’s Latino communities, but failed to achieve the result that its supporters intended (massive self-deportation).
