National Latino leaders say they're concerned about Iowa's voting law changes

Luis Fraga, the director of the Institute for Latino Research at the University of Notre Dame, reminded attendees Iowa isn’t alone in making it harder to vote, and such attempts are most likely linked to U.S. Census results.

America's immigration impasse is self-inflicted. It doesn't have to be.

“People are going to move — as they are all around the world — where they think they can find places to better feed their children. That’s the bottom line, and that’s the history of migration to the United States,” said Luis Fraga, director of the Institute for Latino Studies at the University of Notre Dame.

"Since the 2010 census — we'll soon have the 2020 numbers — 94% of Latinos under the age of 18 were born in the United States," notes University of Notre Dame political science Professor Luis Fraga, who also directs the school's Institute for Latino Studies.
