Ronald Reagan did it. So did George H.W. Bush. And President Obama promised action on immigration reform in June, but nothing’s materialized. Maria Hinojosa talks to Buzzfeed’s Adrian Carrasquillo about what political double-speak means for immigration policy, your thoughts on the matter, and the potential impact on Latino voters.

Adrian Carrasquillo is the editor of Latino coverage at BuzzFeed, the social news and entertainment company. The idea of growing Latino coverage at BuzzFeed is to tell important stories on a powerful national platform that aren’t being told without pandering to the U.S. Latino audience or segregating the content into a separate section. Latino is mainstream and Latino is American and it’s about time the media reflected that. He also is a reporter covering immigration, race and Latino culture. Previously, he helped launch NBC Latino at NBC News, where he managed social media and was a reporter.
