Hispanics in California sent a strong message to Democrats: Help not wanted here.
One of the biggest hiccups in the recent election was the emphatic 14-point defeat of Proposition 16 in deep blue California.
Passing Prop 16, the Times argued, would help.
It is noteworthy that despite every major Latino organization promoting Prop 16, every single majority-Hispanic county voted against it.
That might be because there has been a significant rise in the number of Hispanics attending the University of California system without the benefit of affirmative action.
