Artiles was forced to apologize for calling two other senators racial slurs three days ago. Members of the Florida Legislative Black Caucus described Artiles as a bully. Many took to social media to unleashed their own anger on Artiles.
Our Latino community proved during the 2016 election that we are a powerful group with a strong voice and vote. For those who did not support President-elect Donald Trump we have to accept the fact that he is now our leader. We have to give him chance to unite us.
I have heard you loud and clear on our Wise Latina Linked pages on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. I recorded this video message to all of you right after meeting with a group of concerned Latinas.
Let’s keep an open mind and heart and hope President-elect Trump will be a man who understands division gets us no where, united we are a stronger country.

No matter how much Donald Trump calls his p-word, f-word, and b-word laced conversation “locker room talk”, it has made many American’s cringe. Women around the world are sharing their horrible experiences on Twitter under the hashtag #NotOkay.
When Monica Garcia Saenz hears the Republican candidate’s excuse for his vulgar comments about groping women she thinks about being a young girl and becoming a victim of sexual assault by a stranger.
After the second presidential debate, Monica was brave enough to share her story with the members of the Wise Latinas Linked group on Facebook. We asked Monica if we could share her very painful experience. She allowed us to post her message.
Jessica Yanez-Perez is like many Americans today, remembering the tragedy of 9/11. But she also reminds us that 9/11 brought us together as a country, and brought us together as proud Americans. We were standing against those who would try to hurt our country, and hurt our people.
But what has happened since then? Why is there so much hate within the American people? Why are groups turning on each other in the country of “the land of the free and the home of the brave”?
Listen to Jessica’s heartfelt message.
Thank you Jessica for reminding us that hate gets us no where, and what is important today is to understand and respect each other.
I don’t know the back story about this video of a reunion between a young boy and his father. All I know is that around the country children today are missing their parents who have been deported. And many are wondering why it has happened? Remember they are children.
This video has a happy ending after two years that the father was separated from his children. As of now the video has close to three million views. It has hit a nerve. It has touched many hearts.
Take into consideration that these are parents who only came to this country to build a better life for their families. In many cases they are fathers and mothers who started their families here and were ripped apart my the federal immigration system.
Although this little boy’s father has come home; don’t think he won’t be worrying his father will be deported again. These children are left emotionally damaged.
No one explains the grownup world of immigration and deportation. No one explains why a parent is not coming home. Some children are left to think their parents abandoned them.
It’s a sad situation that will continue to happen, children left behind when their parents are deported.

You can’t insult Mexicans and get away with it, even if you are one of the richest men in the country. Even if you are running for President of the United States.
Wise Latinas didn’t hold back their opinions on Facebook about Donald Trump after he called Mexicans who come into this country “rapists” and “killers.” While NBC and Univision appear to be cutting ties with Trump, Latinas on Facebook believe Trump can be put out of business and politics.
It is not just the pageant. All of us Latinos and Latinas need to boycott every business that benefits this evil, racist man. His hotels, casinos, restaurants, everything! We must send him, and all other like him, a message. -A Marcos, Texas
Childish bored millionaire who has nothing better to do…but make a fool of himself…..IDIOTA — V. Muniz. Texas
He will realize what he has done when his pockets start to feel less fat. Trust that a nation without the Latino buying power and voice is no nation at all. He began it but we Latinos will finish it!–I. Davila
Fuera! Fuera! Fuera! – J.Castro
I’ve never been more motivated to encourage Latinos to vote. As bad as Trump is behaving in public, there are many more who would like nothing more than to quiet Latinos. — M.Salazar, Texas
I hope that many become inspired and 1. Those working for him quit. 2. No one watch the Miss USA pageant 3. No one participates or purchases any of his franchise. That would show a strong message –J.Rivera
Poor guy, he just doesn’t know much about the real world. All his millions will not buy him a seat to the presidential chair.– M. Ramirez, Texas
We Latinos have to make a statement that you can’t just insult us and get away with it. Then it will have a ripple effect and society will treat us the same way. We have to show how powerful we are as consumers and voters. Because right now, that is NOT respected. – M. Rascon
