Today, as Latinos emerge to constitute America's new minority of record, with growing reach into other major states, such as New York, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, and North Carolina, Hispanic-American political influence - drawing on Velasquez's legacy - can only become more significant in the years to come."--BOOK JACKET.
