For the first time in United States history, Latina, Latino, Latinx and Hispanic voters are projected to exceed the number of Black eligible voters in a presidential election, making this the largest ethnic minority voting group. Since his time as a candidate for the presidency in 2016, Donald Trump’s language towards the Latino immigrant community has been charged.

Though, not all voters are focusing on immigration reform at the ballot box. We are hearing from members of the community on what their key voting issues are, and what a Joe Biden win, or a second Trump presidency will mean to them.
