Latinos Key To Success Of Health Law Marketplaces By Jenny Gold KAISER HEALTH NEWS SERVICE

Andrea Velandia, 29, is just the sort of person health law regulators are seeking to draw into the new online insurance marketplaces– young, healthy, uninsured and Latino. “We’re very healthy. We don’t have many issues,” she says of her family. Right now, she and her husband mostly avoid the health system because “it’s very expensive to go to the doctor to get a regular checkup. And you only have an option to go to the emergency room, which is even more expensive.” On Oct. 1, Velandia, who is from Colombia, will be able to sign up her family of four for a subsidized health insurance policy in the new Maryland Health Benefit Exchange, the state’s online marketplace for insurance policies created under by the Affordable Care Act. Just as Latinos were crucial to President Barack Obama’s re-election success in 2012, they are now key to the success of his health law. And the administration is doing everything it can to make sure that Latinos, like the Velandias, enroll. The administration announced this week that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will be making the rounds on Spanish-language media outlets to discuss the health law and unveiled the newly revamped CuidadoDeSalud.gov , the Spanish version of HealthCare.gov . Latinos make up 17 percent of the total U.S. population, but 32 percent of the nation’s uninsured. They’re also more likely to be young – nearly half of Hispanics are under the age of 26. That’s important for the insurance pools because young and healthy people need fewer medical services and insurance companies can use their premiums to help subsidize coverage for older or sicker patients. On a recent morning, Velandia visited the legal clinic at the nonprofit community organization CASA de Maryland in Langley Park to get help filling out the last bit of paperwork to become a U.S. citizen (her husband is already a citizen). Sitting patiently with her toddler and newborn, she was approached by one of the center’s promotoras – lay health promoters who help spread public health information to the Latino community – and offered some basic information about breast cancer, healthy eating and diabetes. In just a few months, CASA de Maryland’s 20 promotoras will be expanding their outreach to include information on signing up for a new health insurance policy as well. The organization recently received a spe-

Local Latino leaders are “heroes” for immigrants By Pablo J. Sáinz This year’s KPBS Local Heroes in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month have one thing in common: Both are women committed to helping immigrant communities in San Diego County. The honorees are Fabiola Navarro, an immigration attorney with the Employee Rights Center (ERC), a non-profit organization that focuses on immigration and workplace rights for workers; and Andrea Skorepa, executive director of Casa Familiar, a social services agency serving the community of San Ysidro. Every year, KPBS recognizes heroes in San Diego’s diverse communities. It’s part of the station’s ongoing commitment to diversity, and made possible through a long-standing partnership with Union Bank. “Diversity is one of our most closely held values,” said Union Bank Senior Executive Vice President Pierre Habis, head of Community Banking “This is why we’re proud to honor local heroes in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.” The two women honored this year have very different stories, but the common goal of helping needy immigrant families in San Diego. Navarro migrated with her husband to the United States in 2001, after a successful career as an attorney in her native Chile. Once she arrived in Michigan, she began taking English as a Second Language classes, and tried to revalidate her law degree in that

state. But Michigan wouldn’t recognize her Chilean degree. So the family decided to move to San Diego, where California recognized her law degree, and, after three attempts and much effort, Navarro passed the bar exam. “I’m an immigrant myself so I was determined to become an immigration attorney to help people to fight for their rights,” Navarro said. As part of her work at the ERC, Navarro provides free consultations for workers who otherwise would face discrimination and human rights violations due to their undocumented status. During her time in the United States, Navarro has become very involved in the plight of undocumented immigrants, helping them achieve equality. She remembers that she grew up during the Pinochet military dictatorship in Chile, a time when human rights violations were common practice in the country. “We should be able to witness a world where our human rights are not violated, are respected,” she said. “The only way to have a real social change is to work together to improve our lives.” As executive director of Casa Familiar, Andrea Skorepa helps provide a wide-range of services for San Ysidro families, from affordable housing to health care access, and from cultural activities to tax preparation. Although, under Skorepa’s leadership, Casa Familiar has become a

Fabiola Navarro, KPBS Hispanic Hero 2013 household name in the South Bay, she said she doesn’t see herself as a hero. “No, I do not consider myself a hero in San Ysidro,” she said. However, I do consider my self a transformational leader as a way of living my life.” She said that the KPBS and Union Bank recognition inspires her to continue working in favor of San Ysidro families, many of them immigrant, working families. “I am at once humbled by the honor bestowed on me and very excited to

be nominated and considered for this type of recognition,” Skorepa said. “While I have never done my life’s work for thanks or ego, this type of honor is really a nice boost to one’s ego as well ad a big community offered ‘Thanks.’ I am quietly overjoyed.” When Skorepa came to Casa Familiar, she said that San Ysidro was a much smaller community, and the town had a bad reputation in San Di(see Hispanic, page 5)

Obamacare is around the corner By Pablo J. Sáinz

In less than a week, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) enrollment period goes into effect on October 1st and there is still a lot of misinformation and confusion among ethnic groups in California about the program. According to an August 2013 survey conducted by The Field Poll for The California Wellness Foundation, ethnic minorities are more likely than non-Hispanic Whites to have a favorable opinion of the so-called Obamacare law, even if they don’t fully understand it. The poll shows that 66 percent of Latino voters in California support ACA, while 82 percent of AfricanAmericans and 65 percent of AsianAmericans do so. The results of the poll, along with other information related to public perception of Obamacare, were shared during an ethnic media briefing this week in San Diego organized by New America Media, an association of ethnic media outlets across the United States. “The Field Poll shows that there’s still a huge gap among health care experts and the public about ACA,” said Sandy Close, executive director of NAM. (see Obamacare, page 5) She said that ethnic media play a

The poll also showed that people who speak a language other than English are more likely to want to learn more about the new law. Also, during the media briefing, Dr. Rodrigo Muñoz, a professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), said that

Obamacare will tackle a major issue among ethnic communities, especially among undocumented immigrants: mental health issues. Muñoz said that “the mentally ill are some of the most important beneficiaries of the new law. In the past, they had no rights. Discrimination has always existed for them.” Among the benefits that Obamacare will offer the public are reducing the insurance companies’ enor-

mous profits, reducing the dominance of a few insurance companies in many states, and may return to individuals the management of their health care, Muñoz said. “If we trust individuals with the ownership of their houses and their cars, with the education of their children, with their vacations, their investment strategies, and decisions about (see Healthcare, page 5)

MÉXICO DEL NORTE

La Reforma Zombi Por Jorge Mújica Murias Aunque no haya habido guerra contra Siria, gracias a la intervención de Rusia y la rápida reversa que le metió Barack Obama (el “Premio Nobel de la Paz”), a sus llamados a bombardear cuando se dio cuenta de que nadie lo apoyaba, no va a haber discusiones sobre la “reforma migratoria” en la Casa de Representantes este otoño. La “reforma” está muerta, y los intentos de “revivirla” suenan a vudú y zombis. Peor aún, los llamados de algunos profesionales que reciben salarios para “mantenerla viva” y “no dejar que se muera”, suenan como a parientes dolidos después de la muerte de alguien muy querido, en completa negación. Dicen los apoyadores de la fallecida iniciativa que el 5 de octubre van a hacer todo lo anterior, desde “impedir que muera” hasta “revivirla” en caso de que esté muerta, por medio de una serie de acciones a nivel nacional. Volverán las marchas, ahora bajo el lema de “reforma con dignidad”, lo cual no suena mal porque la ya agusanada S 744 no tiene nada de digna y sí mucho de falta de respeto a las comunidades inmigrantes, pero por desgracia le vuelven a meter, junto con pegado, el famoso “camino a la ciudadanía”. Dicen los chismes dentro del movimiento que la verdadera historia de lo de la “ciudadanía” se dio porque en las discusiones iniciales, hace un año casi, sobre la mentada reforma, los líderes del Partido Demócratas admitieron que no tenían los suficientes votos dentro de su propio partido para lanzarse por una reforma. El argumento para convencer a los Demócratas más opuestos fue que, estadísticamente, un 80 por ciento de los inmigrantes que se naturalizan ciudadanos, se registran para votar y votan, lo hacen por el Partido Demócrata. Lo que se necesitaba entonces era que todos los indocumentados se hicieran ciudadanos, y los Demócratas gozarían de unos 8 millones de nuevos votos en su favor. Nomás que los Republicanos no se los quieren dar. Si se los dan, sería como hasta el año 2030.

The Mexican Uprising Deepens FRONTERA NORTESUR

Less than one year after taking office, the administration of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto faces serious challenges to its core policies. Leading the opposition are tens of thousands of public school teachers protesting the new No Child Left Behind-like law they contend will cost jobs, aggravate educational inequities and lead to privatization. The protest, which counts months now, is expanding in both scope and participation and more and more assuming the character of a multi-issue popular movement. Increasingly, the teacher protest is transforming from a single-issue opposition to the education reform into a broad movement against the cornerstones of the Pact for Mexico, the political program promoted by President Pena Nieto and the leaders of the Big Three political parties, which implements controversial educational, labor, energy and taxation reforms. In Chiapas, for instance, teachers, labor unions, university students, farmers, and community activists have forged the Unitary Struggle Front from the fire of the teacher strike. “This will help us because from now on every struggle will be shared by the working class and not just a particular sector,” said Alejandro Ovando Rodriguez, front spokesman. “That’s because the education,

tax and energy reforms will affect all the Mexican people.” This week, even as sizable chunks of the country were reeling from the left- right double punch delivered by Hurricane Ingrid and Tropical Storm Manuel, teachers and their allies intensified their protests. Thousands of educators blocked not only the glitzy hotel zone of touristic Cancun for a repeat time, but temporarily cut off the principal access points to the entire city. Fellow teachers in Tlaxcala did the same thing. In Baja California, teachers infuriated by the state government’s initiation of firing procedures against 75 strikers and the levying of fines against hundreds of others, blockaded commercial export lanes in the border city of Tijuana and announced the expansion of protests to Mexicali, Tecate, Ensenada, and the agro-export region of the San Quintin Valley. In Chiapas, where an estimated 70,000 teachers and their supporters staged a September 14 protest rally, rankand-file members of the official SNTE union issued a call for a “teacher and popular uprising” and later occupied a Pemex plant. As the week wore on, rolling work stoppages were reported in Michoacan and other states. Contingents of promovement parents, students and small farmers turned out for marches in Veracruz and elsewhere.

“If there is repression, there will be revolution!” chanted students and teachers in Xalapa, Veracruz, where police violently broke up a protest on the city plaza last weekend. In Mexico City, thousands of public school teachers from around the country were undeterred by the government’s eviction of their protest encampment last week. Now reinforced by university students and faculty, the movement flexed its muscle with more street marches and demonstrations outside commercial television stations the protestors accuse of being behind a concerted campaign of teacher-bashing. “The protests have made evident the enormous incapacity of politicians and media personalities to understand the nature, composition and behavior of the national teachers,” wrote La Jornada columnist Luis Hernandez Navarro. “Every two days, an imminent end to the problem and a return of the teachers to the states is announced. The press even shows pictures of teachers packing their suitcases. Despite this, every day more teachers arrive in Mexico City and increase their protests in other places of the country.” Organizationally separate from but ideologically akin to the teachers’ movement, another anti-Pact for Mexico mobilization picked up steam this week when a group of prominent politicians, intellectuals

and activists issued a four-point statement that rejected President Pena Nieto’s education, energy and tax reforms as harmful to national interests. Among the personalities issuing the call for peaceful civil resistance were Coahuila Bishop Raul Vera, former national university rector Pablo Gonzalez Casanova and human rights activist Miguel Concha. The appeal was jointly supported by left opposition leaders Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and Cuauhtemoc Cardenas, two men who had long been politically distanced. In a statement, the group slammed a “media campaign of lynching” against the “just causes” of the teachers, and urged the Mexican people to resist the “sacking of the nation and of our people that the government and transnational oil companies promote.” In recent days, Mother Nature tossed another ingredient into an already boiling political stew. “Biblical” rains and flooding unleashed by Hurricane Ingrid on the Gulf coast and Tropical Storm Manuel on the Pacific side of the nation disrupted the lives of more than one million people and caused nearly 100 deaths, with the number of fatalities likely to reach much higher. Neighborhoods and commercial centers were inundated, highways and bridges washed out, homes buried in mud, and rural communities isolated. The storms laid bare the myriad social and economic

contradictions always simmering beneath the surface of Mexican life: rural versus urban, rich versus poor, indigenous versus non-indigenous, developed versus undeveloped, government versus society. Already, sharp polemics are raging over the alleged unpreparedness of the government to first warn of and then respond to the double disasters. In Mexico and Latin America, natural disasters, which always contain a large man-made component, frequently have significant political consequences, as witnessed by the 1972 Nicaraguan earthquake that spelled doom for the longrunning Somoza regime, or the 1985 Mexico City earthquake that is widely credited for eventually helping bring about an end to the domination of the Institutional Revolutionary Party. Perhaps with history in mind, President Pena Nieto has been careful to visit Acapulco twice since Manuel slammed into the city. Manuel’s impact was hardest felt in the southern state of Guerrero, a stronghold of the teacher and other social movements. “Chilpancingo is totally collapsed,” is how Mayor Mario Moreno described the situation in the Guerrero state capital in the aftermath of Manuel. In the countryside, scores of communities were rendered incommunicado and the threat of hunger and deprivation mounted. (see Uprising, page 8)

LA COLUMNA VERTEBRAL El Soporte Informativo Para Millones de Hispanos Por Luisa Fernanda Montero

Cáncer y colonoscopía El cuarenta por ciento de los canceres colorrectales pueden evitarse. El proceso es simple: colonoscopia. Así lo afirma un estudio revelado recientemente por la Escuela de Salud Pública de Harvard HSPH por sus siglas en inglés - . La investigación además, reitera que las personas con ciertos niveles de riesgo deben someterse a una colonoscopia cada diez años. “La colonoscopia es uno de los exámenes más comunes en Estados Unidos, sin embargo había poca evidencia de que redujera el riesgo de padecer cáncer de colón” afirmó Shuji Ogino, autor y profesor asociado de del Departamento de Epidemiología de la Escuela de Salud de Harvard. Pero uno de los datos mas relevantes ofrecidos por el experto es que el estudio provee fuerte evidencia de que la colonoscopía es una técnica efectiva para detectar canceres en regiones cercanas al colon y al recto, teniendo en cuenta que exámenes similares como la sigmoidoscopía es insuficiente para prevenirlos. Y es que según las más recientes cifras de los Centros de Control de Enfermedades – CDC – cerca de 137 mil per-

sonas en Estados Unidos fueron diagnosticadas con cáncer colorrectal en el 2009 y cerca de 52 mil murieron ese año debido a esta enfermedad. El cáncer colorrectal es la segunda causa de muerte por cáncer en la nación. En suma, pues, el asunto es que el examen es fundamental en la prevención de un cáncer mortal que puede afectar a cualquiera. El problema, más allá de la misma enfermedad, es la reticencia que le tienen muchos. Cumplidos los cincuenta años de edad, la colonoscopía es un examen indispensable, porque el riesgo de contraer cáncer colorrectal aumenta con la edad. De acuerdo con los CDC más del 90 por ciento de los casos se presentan en personas de cincuenta años o mayores La prueba, en la que se introduce una especie de tubo flexible por el recto, razón por la cual muchos la desprecian, detecta pólipos precancerosos que pueden ser extirpados a tiempo y de realizarse oportunamente puede ser el inicio de un tratamiento exitoso que puede salvarnos la vida.

Luisa Fernanda Montero pólipos o cáncer colorrectal y no saberlo. Muchas veces la enfermedad no presenta síntomas, sobre todo en las etapas tempranas, si se presentan puede haber sangre en las heces, dolores o cólicos estomacales constantes y ppérdida de peso inexplicable. Es importante tener en cuenta que algunas personas tienen más riesgo de padecer esta enfermedad que otras, así que hay que aumentar los niveles de alerta si se presenta, por ejemplo, enfermedad inflamatoria intestinal, si hay aantecedentes familiares de pólipos colorrectales o de cáncer colorrectal o síndromes de origen genético como poliposis adenomatosa familiar o cáncer colorrectal hereditario no poliposo. Hable con su médico acerca de cuándo hacerse las pruebas de detección y con qué frecuencia. Recuerde que su salud está en sus manos, y es muy posible que un sencillo examen le salve la vida.

It is one of 10 organizations in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties that will use $7.8 million in “navigator” funding to educate and enroll uninsured residents. George Escobar, health and human services director at CASA de Maryland, says he plans to use the grant to train his promotoras and hire a dozen new employees to work fulltime on enrollment. One navigator will be stationed in each of the organization’s seven centers. The rest will be mobile, traveling throughout the community and seeking to enroll people at local businesses, supermarkets, churches, schools, apartment complexes and community events.

An estimated 1.4 million people are expected to enroll in 2014. There are 5 easy steps for preparing to enroll through Covered California: 1. Determine your projected income. Your projected income is how much money you will be making next year. You can look up this information on your tax form. 2. Have your social security information on hand. 3. Have your proof of residency. 4. Sign up via Internet. If you don’t have Internet access or prefer doing this in person, you can sit down with a Covered California enrollment counselor and go through the process of enrollment. 5. Set aside time. You need to set aside at least 60 minutes to go trough the information process. During the media briefing, experts warned about possible Obamacare scams. You can avoid scams by keeping in mind a few simple tips on how to safely enroll in coverage. 1. Enrollment assistance is free for public programs. It doesn’t cost anything to have someone help you apply for Medi-Cal or through Covered California. 2. Protect yourself. Do not give out your private information, unless you have confirmed the person’s authenticity. The only authorized website for Covered California is www.CoveredCA.com.

People who are legal residents are eligible to use the insurance marketplaces and receive tax credits to help pay for premiums, but many face a five-year wait before they are eligible for Medicaid. “The take away often was that there isn’t really anything in the Affordable Care Act for the Latino community,” says Ng’andu. “Many people forgot to talk about the fact that there are a broad set of Latinos who are lawfully present and who will gain the benefits of the Affordable Care Act.” She adds that the current congressional debate about overhauling immigration law is adding more fear and confusion, especially in families where some people are citizens and others are not. “Even if everyone in a household is legal, they still have different

eligibility from each other. And so teasing all of that out can be difficult and the process will be complex to enroll individuals in mixed-status families,” she explains. The nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants will not be eligible for the new insurance options. The law explicitly bars them from purchasing insurance on the exchanges, even with their own money. If the immigration bill moving through the Senate becomes law, those here illegally who seek to become citizens won’t be eligible for coverage for at least 13 years after bill passage. “This is a challenge that’s not going to go away with health reform,” says CASA de Maryland’s Escobar. “We’re excited about health reform, we think it’s a wonderful objective, but at the same time, there are a number of people that will be left out regardless of what happens.”

MiraCosta College invites area middle and high school Latino boys to attend the 10th Anniversary Encuentros Educational & STEM Career Exploration Conference, to take place on Saturday, October 5 at the college’s Oceanside Campus, located at 1 Barnard Drive. This year’s breakout workshops will focus on careers in science, technology, engineering and math, and is aimed at increasing the number of Latinos in higher education. Featured speakers will be Francis Guzman, attorney at law, and Alberto V. Perez, principal of Jacobs Company. Master of ceremonies will be local TV reporter Artie Ojeda. The day will begin at 8 a.m. with check-in and a continental breakfast followed by the opening session at 9 a.m. MiraCosta College’s Superintendent/President Dr. Francisco Rodriguez

and Palomar College’s Superintendent/President Robert Deegan will welcome the attendees. The El Camino High School ROTC Color Guard led by First Sgt. Gene LaRue will present the colors. Latinos are the youngest, largest and fastest growing ethnic population in America, yet 53% of Latino boys in California do not finish high school. This alarming statistic is but one indicator of how the changing demographics of Hispanics in our society will impact the global economy. Encuentros Leadership, a nonprofit 501 c3 organization founded in 2003, aims to bring successful Latinos in business, education and government face-to-face with these at-risk children, in order to encourage them to continue with their education and expose them to different career options. Student

participants from local middle and high schools will have the opportunity to meet with Latino professionals and start thinking about their future career. There is no cost to attend the conference; however pre-registration is required and is on a first-come, first-served basis by September 27. This year, a limited number of parents may attend workshops specifically designed for them. Deadline to register is September 27.

Government shutdown over Obamacare?

I

f politics is your thing and you enjoy the give and take between Democrats and Republicans then the filibuster put on by Senator Ted Cruz was there for your enjoyment, 21 long hours of Cruz rambling on, mostly about nothing in particular. CNN junkies got to listen to Cruz as he read “Green Eggs and Ham”, compare himself to Ashton Kutcher and somehow managed to work in a Nazi analogy for those who didn’t join his anti-Obamacare fight. In reality, the Cruz filibuster was not about eliminating the funding for Obamacare! He did not have the votes or support even from his own Party to have a realistic hope for that. No, the filibuster was about Ted Cruz and boosting his profile and maybe making himself a person of choice for the next Presidential election. Senator John McCain, who spoke after Cruz yielded the floor, put the debate over Obamacare into perspective, “We fought as hard as we could in a fair and honest manner and we lost,” he said. “I campaigned all over America for two months (in 2012), everywhere I could, and in every single campaign rally I said we have to repeal and replace Obamacare. Well, the people spoke. ... That doesn’t mean that we give up our efforts to try to replace and repair Obamacare. But it does mean that elections have consequences.” When it was all said and done, Cruz joined the 99 other senators in voting to proceed with the debate on the legislation Cruz sought to block. This of course does not mean the fight over the funding for Obamacare is over, to the contrary it is in mid-fight. After the Senate puts together their proposal for a budget it will then go before the Congress where Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) can add their attachments to the budget bill in an attempt to curtail Obamacare. In addition, all this, it must be done before Oct. 1 to keep the government functioning. Without a budget bill there will not be any money for the government to operate. So, once again the Republicans will be

playing the same old tired hand of holding the budget hostage to get their way. The art of compromise, the give and take between Parties working for the betterment of government is gone. Now partisan politics rule the day, and this week Republican Ted Cruz is the face of partisan politicking. If, as Cruz has stated, he was listening to the will of the voters, the voters have spoken when they reelected Obama. The voters have spoken where the polls show their support for Obamacare. And polls have shown most Americans are against defunding Obamacare! Then there is the humanistic side of the debate that gets short shifted. 48 million people who are uninsured today will be eligible to sign up for health care insurance on Oct. 1. Young folks who are either just starting out in their job or still going to college will continue to be covered under their parents plan. The cost of insurance for those who are paying for a private insurance policy will see significant savings, for example someone paying $600 per month, could see their monthly payment go down to $200 per month. A Pre-existing condition will not disqualify you nor put you into a higher insurance rate. The cost of prescription medicine will be reduced. Then there is the impact on the discussion about immigration reform. Immigration reform has taken a back seat to the debate over Obamacare and with the focus on the budget and then the issue of raising the debt ceiling to follow, the future of immigration reform this year is on the verge of collapsing. Will the Republicans listen to the majority of folks who want Obamacare, and the millions of people who need healthcare coverage? Probably not, they will hold the budget hostage and try to extract as much as possible while the government grinds down to a halt. In the meantime Obamacare will go on, folks will start signing up come Oct 1 no matter what happens in Washington. The question will be, how will the Republicans save face if the budget doesn’t get done and they are blamed for the shutdown?

Ted Cruz Misreads Green Eggs and Ham By Stephen C. Webster

very simple,” Cruz said. “He wants to get as many Americans as possible addicted to the subsidies, addicted to the sugar, because he knows that in modern times, no major entitlement has ever been implemented and then unwound.” “That’s right,” Limbaugh agreed. “He gets as many people signed up to those exchanges as possible, and it makes it all that much more difficult to take it away from them.” “That’s exactly right,” the Texas Senator replied. In a sense, Cruz has been one of the most honest Republicans on this issue. Sure, he stood on the Senate floor and told blatant lies, claiming that letting poor people visit doctors from time to time will “destroy the 40-hour work week” — and that Internal Revenue Service agents are going to decide whether your grandmother lives or dies — but at least he’s outed the true core of GOP opposition to health care reform twice now. “‘You do not like them, so you say,’” Cruz said Tuesday night. “‘Try them, try them, and you may. Try them and you may, I say. Sam, if you will let me be, I will try them, you will see.’ And this page, he is simply holding green eggs and ham on a fork preparing to bite them. ‘Say, I like green eggs and ham. I do, I like them, Sam-I-Am.’” In other words, Cruz and his backers, and indeed the financiers of the Republican Party, do not want the American people to get a taste of actual, affordable health care readily available to nearly all of us — because if we do, we might just like it, which Ted appears to know very, very well.

In his attempt to become the conservative Wendy Davis, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) spent all of Tuesday night and a significant portion of Wednesday morning railing against the Affordable Care Act, insisting his marathon address be called a filibuster even though he wasn’t actually holding up any votes. Along the way he read posts on Twitter, recited Toby Keith lyrics and, oddly, read Dr. Seuss’ “Green Eggs and Ham” into the public record, calling it his favorite book. “‘I do not like them, Sam-I-Am,’” Cruz said in his typically overserious tone. “‘I do not like green eggs and ham. Would you like them here or there? I would not like them here or there. I would not like them anywhere.’” For anyone not fortunate enough to know the story, “Green Eggs and Ham” is a children’s book about someone who refuses to even entertain the idea of trying something new — that is, until he actually does, and then he loves it. “Green Eggs and Ham” is also the perfect explanation of Republican opposition to Obamacare. However, Cruz’s shoutout to the good doctor wasn’t the first time he cut to the chase so effectively. Speaking to Republican shock jock Rush Limbaugh in August, Cruz claimed health reform would be almost impossible to kill once the insurance exchanges and subsidies are in full effect, mainly because people who think they hate Obamacare right now will end up really appreciating not having to pay exorbitant monthly sums to maintain a basic level of health care. “On January 1st, the subsidies are scheduled to kick in, and President Obama’s strategy is Reprinted from The Progressive (www.progressive.org)

Anti-Immigrant Politics and Lessons for the GOP from California By Matt Barreto and Ricardo Ramirez According to polling data from the Field Poll, after winning the presidential election in 1980, California native Ronald Reagan raised his share of the Latino vote from 35 percent to 45 percent in 1984 while carrying 59 percent of the entire state. Republicans went on to win the Golden state again in 1988. Since then, three things have happened: first the Latino share of all voters in California started growing noticeably, and second: California Republicans embarked on an anti-immigrant agenda that ended up alienating Latino voters and driving them into the open arms of the Democratic Party, and third: Republicans have permanently written off 55 electoral college votes – or approximately 20% of the amount needed to reach 270. As the Latino voter population grows across other states, and a rigorous debate unfolds about immigration reform, we take this opportunity to revisit lessons learned from California. How did California go from a Republican stronghold to a Democratic lock? The answer is clear – anti-immigrant policy and a frustrated and mobilized Latino vote. It is now well known in the political science research world and the real world of campaigns and politics that the mid-1990s Pete Wilson era of California Republicanism was a historic turning point in the state’s politics. The infamous anti-immigrant ballot measure, Prop. 187 was championed by then Governor Pete Wilson in his re-election bid and resulted in a significant backlash, and political mobilization among Latino voters in California. Following Prop. 187 were additional anti-immigrant measures such as Prop. 209 and Prop. 227 to outlaw affirmative action and bilingual education. In 1996 when Latinos first comprised more than 10 percent of the state electorate and Latino partisanship had grown dramatically to over 70 percent Democratic, it is no coincidence that California became an easy win for the Democrats. As Latino voter registration grew in the mid-to-late 1990s, the Republican Party continued to emphasize anti-immigrant ballot measures that lead new Latino registrants to check the “Democrat” box on their registration cards. This trend has been clearly documented in political science research. In an analysis of voter registration records in Los Angeles County between 1992 and 1998, Barreto and Woods found that just ten percent of new Latino registrants affiliated with the Republican Party as a direct result of the three so-called “anti-Latino” propositions in California. New Latino citizens were flooding the voter rolls in 1996, 1998 and 2000 and they were identifying as Democrat by a nearly 6-to-1 margin. And not just party registration, but the antiLatino initiatives motivated many new Latinos to vote. Pantoja, Ramírez, and Segura found that Latinos who naturalized and registered to vote during the 1990s were significantly more likely to turnout and vote. Likewise, Barreto, Ramírez and Woods found the best predictor of voter turnout in 1996 and 2000 was whether or not Latinos were newly registered following Prop. 187. The overall result then was more Latinos registering and more Latinos voting as Democrats than in previous years. However, the 2000 election suggested that the anti-Latino era might be over. Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush used his closeness and understanding of Latino voters in Texas to rally support for the Republican ticket in the Latino community—quite the opposite of the Republican strategy during California Governor Pete Wilson’s administration from 1990-1998. Even as Bush attempted to introduce a new compassionate face to the Republican Party, the Republican Party label maintained an image problem with California Latino voters. A survey conducted by the Tomás Rivera Policy Institute during the 2000 election revealed that 53 percent of Latino voters in California still associated the Republican Party with former Governor Pete Wilson, a chief proponent of the anti-immigrant Proposition 187. Ten years later when Jerry Brown squared off

against Meg Whitman for governor in 2010, 80 percent of Latino voters said they were very or somewhat concerned that Whitman had appointed Pete Wilson as a campaign co-chair — 12 years after he had left office! The result of Pete Wilson and Prop. 187 was a lasting legacy of strong support for Democratic candidates in California elections. The two figures below illustrate that as the Latino vote grew in influence, California became a more Democratic state. Most notably, the Latino vote became 10 to 13 percent more Democratic following the anti-immigrant policies endorsed by the GOP in 1994. In 1992 Democrats won 65 percent of the Latino vote, in 1996 Democrats won 75 percent of the Latino vote and by 2012 they were winning 78 percent of the Latino vote. In addition to voting in presidential elections, Latinos in California have also become consistent Democratic voters in other statewide elections since the Reagan era. Statewide results indicate that Latinos voted two-to-one on average in support of Democratic candidates for Governor and U.S. Senate for every election between 1992 and 2002. While some may view the 2003 Gubernatorial Recall election as a potential shift away from the Democratic Party, most analysis now concurs that the circumstances and context of this election were so unique that inferring trends from the 2003 Recall election is not valid, and further that the Republican surge was not long lasting. However, the Recall election does highlight just how important Latino voters are to the Democratic Party in California; in part due to the approximately ten-point drop in Latino support rates for Democratic candidates, Democratic Governor Gray Davis was recalled from office and replaced with Republican candidate Arnold Schwarzenegger. Had Latinos turned out at just slightly greater rates, and voted at their average support rate for the Democratic candidates, Davis would not have been recalled in 2003. While the peculiarities of the 2003 Recall election are unlikely to ever be reproduced in a national presidential election, the outcome reveals that Latinos are a key component to Republican success in California. While overall the state grew by nearly 15 percent (or 4.6 million people), it was almost entirely driven by Latino and Asian-American growth. Similarly, Latinos and Asian Americans drove voter registration growth in the Golden State. Between 1994 and 2004, the state of California added an estimated 1.8 million new registered voters, of which 66 percent were Latino and 23 percent were Asian, leaving just 11 percent of new voters that were either White or Black. Looking back to the mid-1990s and early 2000s in California politics provides many clear lessons for the Republican Party today. The California in 2012 that delivered 60 percent of the vote to Obama did not get there by accident. It was not that long ago that California was a safe state for Republican presidential candidates. The data and story that we review here remind us of the importance of the immigration issue, against the backdrop of a burgeoning Latino electorate. What California Republicans did in 1994-1998 effectively doomed their chances in any future state elections. Today other states such as Arizona, Texas, or even Virginia and North Carolina face their own immigration politics and a fast growing Latino electorate. Already the lessons of California appear to be well lived in neighboring Nevada where Sharron Angle’s anti-immigrant bid for the U.S. Senate in 2010 resulted in a similar outcome to Californias. The question is whether or not the Republican Party in other critical states, or nationally, wants to remain politically viable. Not just in 2014, but in 2016, 2020, and 2024, as the name Pete Wilson still lives on in infamy among Latino voters in California in 2013. Matt A.

La reforma migratoria sigue viva, pero PBS Insults Mexican Americans Again quieren aniquilarla By Raoul Lowery Contreras

Por Maribel Hastings

negociación es abierta, ahora, si así lo determinan, los demócratas pueden impulsar un proyecto de ley con el cual enfilar los cañones, para presionar debidamente al liderazgo republicano. El plan que aprobó el Senado en junio debería ser una alternativa seria. Existen los votos para aprobar esta reforma con una mayoría simple de 218 votos. Hay unos 195 demócratas en favor de una reforma con vía a la ciudadanía, y hay más de una veintena de republicanos que también la apoyan. Algunos están en distritos que son seguros bastiones republicanos, pero que poco a poco han ido cambiando demográficamente, o son republicanos que entienden que tienen que mirar más allá de las fronteras de sus distritos, para lograr que su partido pueda competir efectivamente ante los demócratas por la Casa Blanca. Dos comités camerales han avanzado cinco proyectos de inmigración, casi todos policiales o punitivos, y ninguno aborda qué hacer con los 11 millones de indocumentados. El presidente del Comité Judicial, Bob Goodlatte, republicano de Virginia, asegura que hay más en puerta y que de los ya aprobados, algunos podrían llegar al pleno próximamente. Los proyectos en puerta suponen oportunidades para negociar, para presionar por lenguaje que aborde el gran elefante en medio del salón: qué hacer con los 11 millones de indocumentados que siguen siendo la principal piedra de tropiezo en este proceso. Es aquí donde la comunidad y los grupos pro inmigrantes no pueden quitar el dedo del renglón, y deben continuar presionando por esa legalización con vía a la ciudadanía, que verdaderamente ataje el problema y no lo deje a medio resolver. Y según hay oportunidades en puerta, también hay peligros. Con un calendario apretado y con elecciones de medio tiempo en puerta, para muchos puede ser muy tentador seguir sacando ventaja política del tema migratorio. Los republicanos para seguir apostando, a su crecientemente reducida base ultraconservadora, y seguir negándole logros legislativos a Obama; los demócratas para culpar a los republicanos de inacción con sueños de mayoría camenal en mente. Pero entre todos los posibles cálculos políticos que se hagan, no hay que perder de vista que se trata de vidas, que penden de un simple documento que evite la separación familiar, la ruptura de sueños, la diaria incertidumbre. Tampoco hay que olvidar, que la reforma tiene el apoyo de votantes, latinos y no latinos, que el año entrante acudirán a las urnas y también harán sus propios cálculos sobre quién fue parte de la solución o del estancamiento. No hay que bajar la guardia porque la disolución del Grupo de los Siete no ha matado la reforma, pero ofrece más excusas para quienes quieren aniquilarla.

It seems that no matter how hard the taxpayer funded Public Broadcasting System (PBS) tries, it misses the Hispanic story and does so by ignoring the true Hispanic story stream in USA history. It did it again in this week’s Latino/Hispanic study broadcast after much promotion. It presented a slanted view and omitted critical facts that could have benefited viewers. This is not the first time. When famed PBS contributor Ken Burns did his acclaimed “Civil War” series, there wasn’t a mention of Hispanics who fought on both sides of the war and were key players in stopping Confederate forces in the west, in New Mexico battles. National protests by Hispanics forced Burns and PBS to make some alterations but the original sin of ignoring Mexican American, Mexican and other Hispanic fighting soldiers, sailors and Marines is burned into the Hispanic mind. Time would heal that wound but then PBS does it again this week with their look at Hispanic/Latinos today and in American history. Puerto Rican writers have declared that they were bored with the early parts of the broadcast. That was all Spanish and Mexican. Puerto Rico and Cuba weren’t mentioned until well into the program. California and Texas were concentrated on and there nothing but negative stories and facts were presented. Worthwhile was experiences Mexicans suffered that Puerto Ricans and Cubans have never suffered. California was hell for Mexicans according to PBS. It was during and after the Gold Rush that new White Gold Rushers exercised a combined passion of bigotry and elimination of competition that saw the murder of Mexicans by hanging. The new American state of California passed laws in the state that complimented federal laws that made it impossible for Californians with Mexican or Spanish land grants to hold on to their lands. American squatters simply took what land they wanted; lawyers made sure that judges refused to accept Mexican documentation for land grants. Not discussed by PBS at all was the Mexican/Californian political contributions that managed to influence the new state’s Constitution or the ballot-box victories by former Mexican Contreras’ books are available at amazon.com

Si el proyecto migratorio bipartidista del extinto Grupo de los Siete de la Cámara Baja nunca vio la luz del día, ¿por qué su disolución habría de significar el fin de la reforma migratoria? Honestamente ya muy pocas personas, tomaban en serio las posibilidades reales de que el grupo finalmente presentara su eternamente anunciado proyecto; tanto así que era motivo de apuestas entre ciertos sectores, no sólo por la falta de proyecto, sino porque con la salida del primer republicano, Raúl Labrador, congresista de Idaho, los ocho pasaron a ser siete y muchos se preguntaban quiénes serían los próximos en abandonar el barco. El viernes se supo y fueron dos republicanos de Texas, John Carter y Sam Johnson, quienes ofrecieron una de las excusas más absurdas para justificar su salto. La reforma migratoria, según la explicación de estos legisladores, es víctima de la reforma sanitaria, porque como el presidente Barack Obama decidió retrasar la implementación de algunas de las cláusulas del Obamacare (que los republicanos de todos modos quieren dejar sin fondos), entonces cual niños en pelea de recreo, no le darán al mandatario ningún proyecto migratorio para promulgar, porque supuestamente después no aplicará las leyes debidamente. “La práctica de la administración de seleccionar las partes de la ley, que quiere aplicar ha dañado irrevocablemente nuestros esfuerzos de enmendar nuestro maltrecho sistema migratorio… Sería gravemente irresponsable, darle más poder a esta administración, otorgándole más autoridad o discrecionalidad con un nuevo sistema de inmigración”; escribieron los congresistas. Veamos; los republicanos acusan a Obama de actuar unilateralmente, e incluso de apartarse de la Constitución. Así lo hicieron cuando la admi-nistración concedió la Acción diferida a los DREAMers, por la negativa republicana de apoyar el DREAM Act.

and new American citizen Romualdo Pacheco. Captured by American forces in 1846 on a California trading vessel during the Mexican War, Pacheco was released after he swore allegiance to the United States. A rancher by trade, he was elected as a Democrat to the California State Senate in 1857, served two terms. He then became an Abraham Lincoln Republican. When the American Civil War broke out, Governor Leland Stanford appointed Pacheco Brigadier General, Commanding Officer of the California Native Cavalry (a segregated brigade of former Mexican citizens) who delighted in rounding up Confederate sympathies and disarming them. Elected State Treasurer in 1863 Brigadier General Pacheco served his four year term and returned to the State Senate. He became Lt. Governor in 1875 and rose to Governor when Governor Newton Booth was elected to the U.S. Senate. Pacheco ran for Congress against an incumbent and defeated him by one vote. He was sworn into Congress as the first ever elected Hispanic to the U.S. Congress. Pacheco’s one vote victory was challenged and the House of Representatives decided against Pacheco. He returned to California. He ran for Congress again, won and served two terms. In 1890, the President of the United States appointed Pacheco the first ever Hispanic Ambassador. While PBS presented pictures of lynched California Mexicans, of poor California Mexicans we saw or heard nothing of Romualdo Pacheco, former Mexican, Governor of California, State Senator, California State Treasurer, Civil War General; Congressman and Ambassador. The Honorable Romualdo Pacheco was not mentioned by PBS. Why did PBS ignore the California Mexican when he pioneered a path in politics unmatched by anyone in the United States today? Name one Hispanic who has served as state governor, Army general, federal congressman and Ambassador of the United States other than California Mexican American Romualdo Pacheco. Better yet, name any non-Hispanic politician who has achieved what this California Mexican did over a hundred years ago. PBS?

Mitt Romney, of course, was a farworse choice, what with him stealing the satiric idea of legendary cartoonista Lalo Alcaraz that illegal immigrants “self-deport”—but Obama is bad, and the escalating protests against him by the Left (witness the seven DREAMers last week who chained themselves to the White House fence) are not only a welcome development, but absolutely vital. Do Mexicans use cream of mushroom soup or is that a gringo/Campbell’s ploy to get white people to eat Mexican food? I grew up with parents from Kansas and we lived in New Mexico in late 1960’s and early ‘70’s. Being from the casserole generation, cream of mushroom soup was a staple of all casseroles and my mom did not have the love for true green chile. The family chicken enchilada recipe called for cream of mushroom soup and Velveeta cheese. I loved it growing up, but now that I am older and beyond nostalgia, the enchiladas taste like shit, so I am working up and working on a new family recipe. During this process of formulating a new recipe has me wondering if cream of mushroom soup is at all used by those of Hispanic descent, or just a postdepression white person’s abomination? One Royal Vomit Dear Gabacho: Don’t forget that a lot of Mexicans came of age in the same era as you, so while cream of mushroom isn’t exactly a Mexican pantry staple like, say, Tapatío, it’s not unheard of. Mexican food is chameleonic, and adapts to what’s available, ensuring its brilliance. For instance? My mami’s magnificent buñuelos, giant fried disks of cinnamon-sugar goodness, are made not with flour tortillas or even masa but…rice paper that chinitos use for their spring rolls. Somewhere, Rick Bayless se cago his pants…and that’s a good thing!

Uprising changing the political landscape of Mexico (con’t from page 2) In a statement, the Tlachinollan Human Rights Center of the Mountain, a non-governmental organization which works closely with indigenous communities in the impoverished La Montana region, sharply criticized the government response to Manuel. “There is a complete lack of coordination among the three levels of government and there is no political representation that is attending with speed the proposals and demands of the victims,” Tlachinollan charged. “Until now, the victims of La Montana are not receiving sufficient attention from government agencies, and the worst consequences of these natural disasters falls on the population of the region in extreme poverty. Once again, the most marginalized men and women are also the most forgotten. “ In Guerrero’s biggest city and its environs, Acapulco, scenes of chaos erupted after the tourist resort suffered its worst disaster since 1997’s Hurricane Paulina, an event which also had a political impact. In the wake of Manuel, residents and tourists denounced food and water shortages, price gouging by some merchants and abandonment by government authorities. Some flood victims blocked roads demanding relief, while others looted big department stores.

On the other hand, utility company work crews in Acapulco and the community police of the CRAC in the Tixtla region were praised for quickly responding to the disaster and working to restore services and assist the population. In Chilpancingo, business leaders declared that the government was overwhelmed by the magnitude of the disaster and announced the formation of the “Let’s Raise Up Chilpancingo” collective to activate civil society alongside the Red Cross in flood relief. Acapuclo, meanwhile, is expected to be without running water for up to three weeks because of severe damage to the city’s water delivery system. Striking on the September 16 holiday weekend, Manuel hit Acapulco when an estimated 40,000 mainly Mexican tourists were in town, or so they thought, for a threeday beach break from the daily druthers. But with the AcapulcoMexico City highway shut down from storm damage and the airport inoperative due to flooding, many visitors remained trapped in the city as the week dragged on and a blistering sun beat down on them. In response to the crisis, the federal government began flying tourists home from the Pie de la Cuesta military base outside the city. There, scuffles broke out between soldiers and tourists desperate to board flights. Less affluent tourists hurled complaints of discrimination, charging that soldiers were allowing well-heeled or well-connected tourists to cut

in line. One reporter sketched a scene of soldiers escorting “couples followed by their domestic employees carrying the children.” Nieces of soldiers, the writer continued, were afforded VIP treatment, as were their friends and “tourists with clear skin, and ‘good girls’ without a hair out of place and dressed like it was for a vacation fashion catalog.” In the middle of a swirling enviro-political storm, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden landed in Mexico City for meetings with President Pena Nieto and other officials. Biden gave an endorsement to the Pena Nieto government’s education and other reforms as “necessary,” and the vicepresident’s office noted U.S. and Mexican economic ties as a backdrop to the trip. “The global competitiveness of both our countries requires continued and deepened economic integration, commercial exchanges and policy alignment,” Biden’s office stated. As the fall season kicks in, the after-effects of Ingrid and Manuel, the militancy of the teacher movement, protests against the upcoming energy and taxation legislative packages, and a host of other contentious local and regional issues are all carving out a quite surprising and explosive political landscape.

Reforma (con’t de página 2) “reforma”, en que “es mejor agarrar ahora lo que se pueda y luego lo mejoramos”, y en que “más vale hacerlo ahora porque el próximo año es electoral y no se puede aprobar nada”. Para mí los dos argumentos son más falsos que una moneda cuadrada de tres dólares. No conozco, hasta la fecha, una sola ley que se haya “mejorado”. Generalmente las leyes se aprueban cuando la situación real ya no se puede controlar por una legislación anticuada, y las leyes duran 20 años, no “se mejoran” ni al próximo año ni al siguiente. Si nacen chuecas, chuecas se quedan un par de décadas y punto. O tres décadas, que sería el ejemplo de la inmigración. Curiosamente, la última gran “reforma migratoria”, la famosísima amnistía de 1986, nunca “se mejoró”. Por el contrario, se empeoró bastante en 25 años. Primero con las “reformas” de Bill Clinton y el Partido Republicano de Newt Gingrich, a mediados de los 1990’s, y luego con la aprobación en

abonos de 2006 a la propuesta de Jim Sensenbrenner, cuando se aprobó el muro en la frontera y demás. El otro argumento es también falso porque precisamente aquella “amnistía se aprobó en un año electoral. De hecho, la mayoría Republicana en el Senado, bajo la presidencia de Ronald Reagan, presentó la propuesta pocos meses antes de las elecciones intermedias. Dicen los estudiosos que la intención era ganar votos latinos precisamente en esas elecciones para el Partido Republicano. Nomás que les falló la estrategia. Las elecciones llegaron antes de que Reagan firmara la ley, y los Republicanos perdieron estrepitosamente su mayoría en el Senado. Reagan la firmó a la semana siguiente.

FAMILY FEATURES

othing says summer more than baseball, America’s favorite pastime, and refreshing frozen treats. During these warm months, find the kids something fun to do to fill their days of leisure. Here are five super summer activities sure to be a grand slam for your family. Encourage your kids to think beyond the couch, and add a little excitement to their summer routine.



Make it a triple play in your backyard by setting up the sprinkler, playing limbo with the water hose and laying out a tarp for a do-it-yourself water slide area.



Gather up the team for a visit to your local library. This is a perfect way to get some of their summer reading completed.



Hit a home run with ice necklaces and bracelets. Freeze flowers and other baubles in an ice tray with a ribbon dangling into each cube. As the jewelry melts, your kids will cool down in style.



Cover your bases by always keeping cold treats stocked and ready in the freezer. Fun, fruity ice pops are always a favorite.



Score big by making your own homemade lemonade or sun tea. Kids can get creative by adding fresh fruit or other favorite flavors.

STEP UP TO THE PLATE FOR FUN Your kids will love these summertime recipes, inspired by a partnership between Bomb Pop and Little League Baseball and Softball. You’ll score big when you invite the kids into the kitchen to create edible bats, their favorite baseball players and a super sweet scoreboard.

Sweet Scoreboard Prep time: 10 minutes Yield: 4 servings 4 (3 x 2 inch) rice crispy treats Sugar cake decoration letters and numbers to spell “Home,” “Guest” and team scores 2 Original Bomb Pops Arrange the sugar candy letters GUEST and HOME across the treats, placing number next to each for the score. Place treats on dessert plate. Place a Bomb Pop on each side of “scoreboard” as posts. Serve immediately.

Edible Baseball Bats Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 2 minutes Yield: 6 servings 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs 8 ounces white chocolate candy coating 6 Original Bomb Pops 3 regular-size marshmallows, cut in half Place graham cracker crumbs on a large plate. Melt candy coating according to package directions; quickly spread on all sides of Bomb Pop. Roll immediately in graham cracker crumbs, pressing to stick to Bomb Pop. Press cut side of marshmallow onto narrow end of Bomb Pop to resemble baseball bat knob. Eat immediately or freeze until serving time.

Build Your Favorite Baseball Players Prep time: 10 minutes Yield: 4 servings 4 medium strawberries, stems removed 4 Sour Wower Bomb Pops 1 tube white frosting in pastry bag with writing tip 8 (1/2-inch) sugar cake decoration letters 8 mini candy-coated chocolate pieces 4 graham cracker sticks, cut in half Cut a thin slice off one long side of each strawberry. Hollow out center to fit on end of Bomb Pop. Place a dab of frosting where the strawberry begins to taper to a point, and attach sugar letter. Set aside. Working quickly, place 2 dabs of frosting for the eyes, and press a candy coated chocolate piece on each. Attach each graham cracker half with frosting for arms. Place a strawberry baseball helmet on top of each Bomb Pop. Serve immediately.

UC San Diego Defining the Future of the Public Research University The University of California, San Diego, founded in 1960, has emerged as a premier teaching institution, an economic engine and a research powerhouse with a strong commitment to public service. Outstanding faculty are a key to UC San Diego’s success. Our students learn directly from leading scholars, including the 16 Nobel laureates who have taught at UC San Diego in the past five decades. Most recently, in August 2013, President Barack Obama selected UC San Diego chemistry professor Mario Molina to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor bestowed by the United States government. Molina is an international leader in developing science and environmental policy, particularly as it relates to urban and regional air pollution and climate change. In 1995 he shared the Nobel Prize in chemistry for revealing that common household chemicals were harming the Earth’s ozone layer.
