This week on Being Latino on Facebook we compared a popular movie to the history and current events of Latin America. An interesting way to understand foreign policy and history to be sure. The lessons tell us that just like humans, countries can be co-dependent, resulting in devastation for both.
This week we also discussed the Obama Administration’s decision to halt the deportation of DREAMers and veterans. Perhaps a first positive step in reforming an immigration system that often drives people to commit illegal acts, such as marrying for papers.
Finally, we profiled the work of an organization that is teaching Latino youth to understand the importance of education and helping them to achieve it, building future Latino leaders in the process.
Being Latino is a communication platform whose mission is to educate and connect all peoples across the global Latino spectrum. Being Latino is the largest fan page for Latinos on Facebook.
