¿QPM? S4 EP 8: Latinos to become largest racial or ethnic minority group in the electorate and our last episode

From WNIN | Part of the ¿Qué Pasa, Midwest? series | 17:00


Este es nuestro último episodio de la tempoarada, así que decidimos hablar acerca de la impostancia del voto.

Tu voto cuenta. Este año que viene mas personas de color van a ser elegibles para el voto que en años pasados. According to the Pew Research Center, the 2020 election will mark the first time that Hispanics will be the largest racial or ethnic minority group in the electorate. 

En terminos mas simples, a projected 32 million Hispanics and 30 million blacks will be eligible to vote in 2020. This increase is at least partially linked to inmigracion and naturalization. Por que one-in-ten eligible voters in the 2020 election will have been born outside the U.S.

Like for example Mayra Fortes. A Mexican born professor who recently became a citizen. Our collaborator Emily Hunsberger talked to her in Michigan about why she decided to become a US citizen.
