The Economy vs. Immigration: What Will

 Unlock the Latino Vote in 2012?

Check out the Feet in Two Worlds podcast with Chung-Wha Hong of the New York Immigration Coalition and Mark Hugo Lopez of the Pew Hispanic Center to preview the discussion we’ll be hearing tomorrow, October 18 at the “Unlocking the Latino Vote” town hall at The New School. Click HERE to listen and join us tomorrow at the panel! To reserve a seat, please click HERE.
If you can't make it, you can still watch and listen via the livestream HERE.
Latino voters are expected to play a pivotal role in the U.S. presidential election, especially in several key battleground states. Join us for a town hall event that brings together journalists, pollsters, and policy experts to explore the complex relationship between the Latino electorate and the candidates. Will economic concerns such as unemployment and housing foreclosures guide Latinos at the voting booth? Will the candidates' immigration policies dominate? Or will large numbers of Latinos simply sit out this election? Understanding the political cross-currents buffeting Latinos today will provide valuable insight on the probable outcome of the election, as well as political and policy implications for the nation over the next four years.
Moderated by Latino USA executive producer and anchor Maria Hinojosa, the panel includes the New York Immigration Coalition's executive director, Chung-Wha Hong. Please join us for a timely and compelling discussion focused on immigrants, immigration, and the 2012 elections.
