The Latino Wave: How Hispanics Are Transforming Politics in America by Jorge Ramos

With a population of 40 million and growing, the United States witnessed Latinos becoming the largest minority in America in 2003—creating a voting bloc with the potential to determine the outcome of elections throughout the nation.

In The Latino Wave, award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos argues that the political party that can correctly understand the wants and needs of Hispanics will triumph at the polls. Ramos deftly clarifies these points, among many others, and explains why it's necessary to bridge the gap of misunderstanding that exists between Latinos and non-Latinos.

With insight from the nation's Latino political luminaries and interviews with Hispanics living across the United States, Ramos reveals who these New Americans really are—and what it means for the country.

The author has the demographic numbers that a wave on Latinos will greatly affect the future of the USA. It is a wake up message for many and confirmation of population changes forthcoming due to birth or immigration [illegal and legal] by Latinos. Texas is already a majority minority state by Latinos and LA has a larger Latino population than most Central/South American cities. In 2125 there will be more Latinos than whites. In 1970 Latinos were 5% of population, in 2002 they represented 13.5 %. Latinos, says the author, are different and distinct and will shatter the melting pot of America. Latinos maintain close ties with their country of origin through phone/email, etc. and the proximity of their home country. The author explains how Latinos had a key role in helping Pres. Bush win his 2000 campaign. At the end of the book the author lists a number of things that will have to change or be changed by the wave of Latinos. The question is will it have a tsunami effect on America or be a high tide of a new demographic coming into current society.
