Last Wednesday, I was honored to be a panel member on ABC’s Sunday morning news show, Viva Houston. The focus of the program was to examine issues affecting Latinos currently, but to also look back at 2010 and discuss important events affecting the Latino community locally, state-wide, and nationally. The panel discussed the impact of the new Healthcare laws, the importance of the 2010 census, the need for comprehensive immigration reform on a national level, current bills pending in the Texas legislature concerning the civil rights of many Texas residents, and also the recent tragedy in Arizona and how that state’s recent history has fueled a great deal of political rhetoric. I was honored to be joined on the panel by Sylvia Garcia (former Commissioner of Harris County, Precinct 2), Ray Morales (former Houston mayoral candidate), and Tatcho Mindiola (Professor of Sociology and Director of Mexican-American Studies at the University of Houston). Viva Houston was hosted by Eric Barajas who did an excellent job keeping the dialogue focused and entertaining. If you are interested on watching the entire thirty minute segment, tune into ABC Channel 13 this Sunday at 11:30 a.m. CST.
