The Latino community is growing exponentially in the US. Not only is the population of Latino immigrants increasing but also the amount of second and third generation Latinos is blossoming. In the past, thousands of Latinos came to the US in order to work hard and pursue better lives for themselves and their families.
Those hard working Latinos have voices too.
While immigration is currently a controversial topic, a lot of negative sentiment is bred against the Latino community. Plenty of Latinos work janitorial or lawn care jobs as a way to make ends meet but others also take advantage of the US welfare system to claim benefits (whether it’s food stamps, Medicare, or Medicaid). Whether or not a Latino comes to the US to work or to take advantage of the welfare system, Latinos still need a representative for their community—not someone as a liaison asking for government handouts but someone to create opportunities for economic growth.
Fortunately, hard working conservative Latino leaders are making their marks in the political realm along with the backing of other non-Latino allies.
Conservative Latino leaders who want to create a healthy and fertile business environment should be supported not only by other people in their community but also other conservative allies. They're not only seeking out to benefit their own community but the entire community in general, starting from the local level all the way to the federal level.
As a conservative Latina, I stand with my fellow conservatives in my ethnic community.
