Description
At 46 million, Hispanics are the largest minority in the US, about 15% of the US population. Author Senator Menendez is the first person of Hispanic ethnicity to represent New Jersey in the US Senate, and only the sixth Hispanic in history to serve in the Senate. Here, he calls for major changes in immigration laws and healthcare for immigrants. He offers a portrait of the Hispanic population in the US, using statistics to demonstrate that millions of Latinos are going to college and serving in public offices, and makes recommendations for improving education, healthcare, and elder care. An appendix of statistics is included. There is no subject index. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
