The Huffington Post reported yesterday that a Senate resolution honoring the Hispanic media passed without a single Republican co-sponsor. The resolution, declaring October 25th-31st “National Hispanic Media Week,” was on hold for several days while Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) struggled in vain to find Republican co-sponsors for the resolution, Senate sources told America’s Voice. Senator Reid ultimately introduced it along with a group of his fellow Democrats, and it was adopted swiftly. But if Senate Republicans don’t show interest in the issues that matter to Latino and immigrant communities, why should they have to applaud the media outlets that keep these communities informed on the rants against Latinos and immigrants that certain Republicans engage in?
