Raids Impacted Latino Vote

EFE-Univision, Posted: Nov 05, 2008

WASHINGTON Immigration may have disappeared from the limelight during the presidential campaign, but the anti-immigrant climate mobilized millions of Latino voters to go to the polls yesterday, according to an EFE report on Univision.com. Raids and deportations have only served to increase the determination of immigrant rights groups, EFE reports. This determination propelled citizenship drives and an unprecedented one million new immigrant voters, according to the report. Initial exit polls suggest that at least ten million Latinos voted, representing an increase of 32 percent from the 2004 presidential election, according to a statement released by the National Council of La Raza.
