THE DECISIVE VOTE?
How Latinos voted and what it means for policy

 
President Barack Obama was reelected with overwhelming support from Latinos, the nation's fastest growing voting bloc. In December 2012, ImmigrationWorks held a forum to discuss the Latino vote and its implications for policy. Scholars and political insiders discussed how Latinos cast their ballots, what the results mean for Democrats and Republicans, how Latinos will use their newfound power and what this could mean for immigration reform and other issues. Participants included Roberto Suro, former director of the Pew Hispanic Center; Dan Restrepo, former senior director for Western Hemisphere affairs in the National Security Council and a Spanish language surrogate for the Obama campaign; and Alfonso Aguilar, executive director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles. Arizona State University and the Woodrow Wilson Center cosponsored the event
