"Hispanos" hit very hard by today's economic numbers

We say it again:  Hispanics are very concerned about the economy.  Immigration reform is important to some but getting, or keeping, a job is important to all.

Friday's jobs report was bad.  It was really bad for Hispanics:

"The Hispanic unemployment rate jumped from 10.3% in April to 11% in May as the economy added only 69,000 jobs, the Labor Department reported. 

The disappointing job numbers come as Hispanic voters — who voted by 67%-31% for Obama in 2008 — are showing signs of diminished enthusiasm about the November election."  (USAToday)

Some Hispanics have the option of going home.  In fact, a lot of them have walked south.  However, most of them can't go "home" because this is "home".
