CNN Politics laid out a very revealing assessment regarding the census results.  They provide 8 political takaways.  Number 1 is that, "Republicans need to improve relations with Hispanics. Fast."  One in six Americans are Latino/Hispanic while the White population is reducing in numbers.  TPL views that such numbers can translate to political power but only if Latinos are united through common cause.  Such "common cause" needs to extend beyond the immigration issue to address with equal vigor health, education, and job for Latinos.
