More Latinos head to our nation's capital

"The new U.S. Congress sworn in today will have 3 Latino U.S. Senators and 28 Latino House members; nine of these are first-time members of Congress," via the Associated Press. Soak in that statement for a minute. During the 2012 elections, Latinos showed the United States of America not only our voting power but as political officials. Sure it's the ever changing landscape of the U.S. Even brands are shifting gears...but this is old news.

The AP article stated the following:

  • In a sign of some diversity for the venerable body, the Senate will have three Hispanics — Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and one of the new members, Republican Ted Cruz of Texas. There will be 20 women in the 100-member chamber, the highest number yet.
Will the new Congress with record number Latinos change laws? Will it help Latinos?
