People identifying themselves as government agents board a train and ask for each passenger’s citizenship. If this sounds like something out of a movie, it’s not. It happened to Maria Hinojosa’s son on his way back to New York City from college in Chicago. Maria gives us her thoughts on what this kind of incident means for the qualities and values we hold dear in the United States.

Certain obsolete political views of the extreme right – including republicans who speak some Spanish- do not understand or empathize with the current socio-economic needs and cultural aspirations of the majority of Latin American countries. The political views of the cold war and the hysteria of the “communism menace” from Latin America are invalid. Global peaceful coexistence , self determination ,mutual respect , partnership in socio-economic and cultural progress among nations is more acceptable and civilized than imposition or manipulation of any kind.
