Dallas News: How immigration battles are firing up Latinos and putting Texas, battleground states in play for the presidential election

June 25, 2019

The immigration news is grim: a plan for looming massive family roundups for deportations, a report of children detained in America without enough food and water, and a nation embroiled in debate over whether or not to welcome asylum seekers with open arms.

Ruth Gilmer knows what to do. She moved here from her native Mexico decades years ago. She’s angry, but also inspired. To vote. “This is not about being Mexican,” said Gilmer, a U.S. citizen for 30 years who is among the millions of Latinos in the U.S. who are growing more determined than ever to have their voices heard during the primary and presidential votes next year. “This is about being humanitarian, caring about your fellow human being,” said Gilmer, 54, “But as a Mexican what’s happening along the border and against immigrants in this country, this hurts twice as much. The only defense you have is your vote.”
