Law Student Publishes Op-Ed in St. Louis Post-Dispatch

February 20th, 2013

In an op-ed in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 3L Rita Florez argues that to say that the 2012 presidential election was decided by Hispanic or Latino voters focused on immigration policy is a one-dimensional view. “The idea that eligible voting Latinos, all 24 million of us, don’t care about a lagging economy, health care, the federal deficit or foreign policy is just untrue,” Florez writes. “Reducing the Republican loss to immigration is an incomplete perception of Hispanic views on that single issue.”
