In a phone conversation, Miguel, one of three members of the band Migrant Kids, nos dice que things like the thought of the Mexico-US border wall being built takes a toll on his mind, how growing up Latino in this country can be confusing and how not taking a political stance is almost inevitable in today’s social climate.

Reggae prodigy, Zion, talks about his childhood in the West Indies and the Virgin Islands donde vivio mucho tiempo without electricity or running water, how that struggle was an inspiration to write the música he writes today and how living between two religions, Christianity and Rastafarianism, made him question his identity.

We decided to do this episodio because even thought in the general sense, Zion is not considered a Latino, being from the Caribbean, he shares a lot of the same struggles and experiences Latinos face.

We want to thank Zion for this interview and for his live performance en nuestro studio. You can listen to más de su música, see behind the scenes and explore his homeland through videos on his website zionalbert.com. Don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter for exclusive content!

“if you go to the emergency room, if you go to a doctors appointment, you know that the one thing that they ask for is insurance. Do you have insurance? You know? I’m not going to say the majority, but a good portion of the Latinos that I deal with don’t qualify for insurance. You know you have to be a resident here for at least a month in order for you to apply for emergency services which is very limited.“

Every ten years, the government of the United States of America issues a mandatory census to count the population.  The results of the census determine the number of seats that each state gets in the House of Representatives, the distribution of federal funds, and enforcement of voting rights laws. Now, the 2020 Census tiene una pregunta sobre citizenship. The Department of Justice requested that the Census Bureau reinstate a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. They say that citizenship voting age population data isn’t currently available, and it’s needed to determine violations of minority population voting rights. Mucha gente, especially Latinos, are worried that answers to the citizenship question will be used to target their communities. That fear of being targeted may keep some people from filling out the census. But if Latinos don’t respond to the census, it’s possible that they won’t receive the funds that they need to support sus comunidades.

En este episodio hablamos de la importancia de la educación en familias Latinas. Cesar Roman works with diverse communities informing them of the options they have to obtain a better education for their children. He says the lack of education for the parents on what;s the best option for their children often hinders the possibilities of better options. He said the lack of information in their native language is also a factor on why parents don't know what their options are for their kids.

The experience of 1.5 generation immigrants, a term used to describe people who arrived in the U.S. as children and adolescents, is a unique one. Unlike their first-generation parents or U.S.-born siblings, their identity is split. That in between. Los que hablan más inglés que Español o que a lo mejor no saben mucho acerca de la cultura de sus padres.

Emmy is part of this generation. He was brought to the Midwest as a little boy by his parents who had a visa to establish churches in the region. Emmy, now 31 years old, wants to connect more with his Dominican heritage and pass this knowledge along to his daughter Charlie, who is 9 months old. El solo le habla español and says it’s important to him that his daughter knows what at some point he was ashamed of showcasing — his Latino heritage. Emmy tried to fit in for many years.

U.S. immigration agents raided an Ohio gardening company, arresting 114 suspected undocumented workers. About 200 federal officers blitzed two locations of Corso’s Flower and Garden Center. La escena incluyó, agents surrounding the perimeter and blocking off nearby streets as helicopters flew overhead. They loaded 114 workers onto buses bound for ICE detention facilities. Y de acuerdo con activistas, dozens of the workers’ children were left stranded at day-care centers and with babysitters. The massive raid came exactly two months after federal officials arrested 97 immigrants at a meat-processing plant in rural Tennessee. Esto es parte de los workplace raids across the country, including a nationwide sweep of 98 7-Eleven stores.

Escenas como esta son cada vez más común en las noticias. We see the people being surrounded, the agents, the buses and sometimes the facilities but what we don’t see is the trauma this causes for not only the companies and the community but for the families of these individuals.

Janeth works at the local community college in Liberal, Kansas as an academic advisor, helping students navigate college and immigration when needed. Ella también ayuda con el festival del Cinco de Mayo since she was the first Cinco de Mayo Liberal Kansas queen in 2002. Janeth’s mission is to help the youth and the community. She’s involved in many non profit organizations and committees around the city of Liberal trying to help those who are lacking the education to better navigate the systems.

After not being able to talk to my family for six days, my mom finally called me from the Island. Hurricane Maria had just passed and she couldn't believe was she was seeing. I didn't know what had happened during that time so she started sending me pictures of what I thought was another country. I grew up in Puerto Rico; in these streets and I couldn't recognize any of them. My mom and sister came to stay with me in the Midwest after the hurricane and talked to me about their experience.

Why did Alfonso come to the Midwest? It had something to do with the FARC — las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia or the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia — una alianza en contra del gobierno since 1964. The FARC sustains their estilo de vida by kidnapping and ransom, illegal mining, extorsiones and the production and distribución of illegal drugs.

Alfonso was kidnapped on a fishing trip in Venezuela and when he escaped to el Medio Oeste he was just supposed to be here for 3 months. Pero Alfonso’s kidnapping was more a plane robbery than un secuestro.

Non-Latinos are not the only ones confused about why Cinco de Mayo is celebrated. I’m from the Dominican Republic, and I have to admit that I didn’t know for a long time that this celebration was not the Mexican Independence Day I was misled by the celebraciones en Estados Unidos about este festejo.

Duolingo schools no son nada nuevo. There are many of them around the country, focusing on many different languages, and they’re certainly not new in the state of Indiana. En Fort Wayne, Lindley Elementary ha tenido un programa similar al de Parkview,  por más de veinte años.

De afuera, la escuela primaria Parkview en Valparaiso, Indiana, looks like any other school in Northern Indiana. Teachers greet kids outside the main doors, little flashes of color swipe past you as kids scurry to get to their classrooms, there’s a smell of plywood, because estan renovando la escuela.

A couple of years ago, Parkview received a state grant to create a pilot bilingual immersion program. Woodetski says como 23 por ciento de los estudiantes son hispanos, y los estudiantes bilingües y de habla hispana were getting left behind. The idea is to teach kids subjects such as math and science en Español por medio dia, y el resto del dia la instrucción es en Ingles.

Pero no todos los estudiantes se sienten cómodos con el Español. Bryan and Osvaldo son hermanos. They’re in different grades. Los dos son bilingues.

Y ser bilingue sometimes means you’re the voice for your family.  A veces tienes que traducir, and that can be tough, take the classic cashier scenario. If you’ve ever translated for your parents you know exactly what we're talking about.
