We devote most of the hour to the recent Mayoral election in Los Angeles,
where a Latino Mayor was elected for the first time since the 1800s; we’ll
speak with Arnoldo Torrez, a seasoned political analyst for Spanish-language
television; we’ll have a roundtable discussion with Juan Jose Gutierrez, an
immigrant rights advocate and Richard Montoya of the legendary Latino
theater troupe, Culture Clash; also, women from the Latino community speak
out against police violence and the Real ID act; and a roundup of weekly
news from Palestine.
