Latino lives don"t matter in politics: EJ Montini

The choice is Donald Trump and Joe Arpaio, or get your act together and turn out to vote

I’ve lived in Arizona for over 30 years, and for over 30 years well-meaning newspaper writers, well-educated political scientists and well-connected civil rights activists have predicted that Latinos are about to become the dominant voting bloc in Arizona.

And for over 30 years well-set politicians — just about all of them Republicans — have ignored these predictions.

And they have been correct.

Latino voters could become the dominant voting bloc in Arizona.

Latino voters should become the dominant voting bloc in Arizona.

But Latino voters are not the dominant voting bloc in Arizona.

In fact, Latinos do not matter. At all.

If Latinos mattered, would there have been a Sheriff Joe Arpaio for the past 23 years?

If Latinos mattered, would there have been an SB 1070?
