Voto y Migración por Luis Rubio

Pictured Above: Exceptional Journalist, Luis Rubio

For those of you who can read in Spanish, I highly recommend that you read the works of Luis Rubio, a very astute and intellectually honest Mexican journalist. In his essay Voto y Migración (Voting and Immigration), he discusses some of the works of Samuel Huntington that pertain to issues of Mexican Immigration to the United States. In contrast to many journalists, he objectively approaches a very emotionally charged topic. He asks his readers to consider the valid points in Huntington's argument and to "put themselves in the shoes of their North American neighbors" and ask themselves how they would respond if Guatemalan Migrants started demanding a host of political rights, while still pointing out the hyperbole in Huntington's argument.
