Hispanic Voting Still Lower Than Other Groups. Will Trump Inspire A Greater Turnout?

By J. Noel Espinoza/RioGrandeInfo   COMMENTARY   Will this be the presidential election when Hispanics vote in larger numbers than other groups in the nation? It remains to be seen whether Latinos will show in force next week to cast their votes, especially after the Republican candidate Donald Trump has insulted and belittled Latinos more than any other candidate in recent memory. Trump began his campaign by calling Mexicans “rapists,” and “drug smugglers. After an Indiana federal judge ruled against his Trump University scam, Trump again denigrated the judge’s impartialityRead More


Tomándose Foto Al Votar? No Lo Haga. Podría Terminar En La Cárcel

Por J. Noel Espinoza/RioGrandeInfo   Recibí una gran sorpresa el  jueves pasado cuando fui a votar en la votación temprana a favor de Hillary Clinton en la Biblioteca Pública de Brownsville. Tuve la tentación de tomarme una foto, mejor conocida como un selfie, mientras esperaba mi turno en la línea de votación.   Después de identificarme con otro votante como reportero de RioGrandeInfo, la gente alrededor se miraba el uno con el otro mientras mi hijo cargaba la camera. En otras palabras no sabía lo que estaba pasando. Una vezRead More


Ballot Selfie? Don’t Do It. You Could Go To Jail

    By J. Noel Espinoza/RioGrandeInfo   I’ve got a big surprise Thursday afternoon when I went to cast my ballot in favor of Hillary Clinton at the Brownsville Public Library. I was tempted to photograph myself, better known as selfie, while I was in line waiting to vote. After I identified myself to another voter as a writer for RioGrandeInfo, people were looking at each other while my son had my camera.  In other words, I didn’t know what was going on. Once I voted, an election representative withRead More


Lloriqueo De Trump Sin Reparación

Por J. Noel Espinoza/RioGrandeInfo   A Donald Trump le encanta afirmar que lloriqueando lo hace un ganador, pero ahora parece que su propia medicina en los negocios será su propia destrucción en su campaña por la presidencia de los Estados Unidos, o como diríamos con el viejo refrán, “Le salió el tiro por la culata.” En el tercero y final debate este miércoles, el magnate de los negocios y antiguo artista de televisión rehusó decir si aceptaría los resultados de las elecciones del 8 de noviembre, en caso que perdieraRead More


Trump’s Whining Beyond Repair

By J. Noel Espinoza/RioGrandeInfo   Donald Trump likes to claim that whining makes him a winner, but it seems that his own medicine in business is backfiring on his political campaign to reach the presidency of the United States. In the third and final debate Wednesday, the business mogul and former tv showman refused to say that he will accept the results of the Nov. 8 presidential election. The following day, he declared that he will accept the results, “if I win.” It’s obvious that when things don’t go hisRead More


Republicanos Incitan Al Miedo Con Los Inmigrantes

Prejuicio Republicano Probablemente Le Dara La Presidencia De Nuevo A Los Demócratas Por J. Noel Espinoza/Rio Grande Info COMENTARIO: La intolerancia demostrada por Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, y la mayoría de los otros aspirantes Republicanos por la nominación presidencial de la GOP probablemente les dará el beneficio a los Demócratas por parte de ese gran segmento del público Americano que no ve a los inmigrantes indocumentados como una amenaza a la nación. Históricamente, los inmigrantes han sido chivos expiatorios, especialmente culpados por aquellos que se creen superiores y que consecuentementeRead More


Republicans Play Fear With Immigration

Republican Bigotry Likely To Give Democrats The Presidency Again By J. Noel Espinoza/Rio Grande Info COMMENTARY: The intolerance from Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and most of the other Republican contenders for the presidential nomination of the GOP likely will give Democrats the benefit to reach that large segment of the American public that don’t see undocumented immigrants as a threat to the nation. Historically, immigrants have been a scapegoat during elections, especially used by those who see themselves superiors and like to blame them for whatever apparent ills in theRead More
