Minority Political Involvement

From Voice of America News:

Young immigrants and minorities are getting more involved. The proof is increased voter turnout among members of all racial groups between the ages of 18 and 24 in the 2004 election.

However, there is still a huge divide in the voting patterns. Census bureau statistics show that almost half of all registered African-Americans in that age group, many of whose families have been here for generations, voted in the 2004 election. Among registered young Asian-Americans and Latinos, whose families are more likely to have immigrated recently, the number voting was only around one-third.

Our debate this week is on immigration and the border fence Rep. Duncan Hunter wants to build. I'd love to hear your opinion!
