obama-whistlePolitical news for today:

Hispanic population has increased dramatically in New Orleans since Katrina.  Below is the latest from Data Research.  Also, Obama whistles an end to hostility towards Cuba with exchanging embassies, Governor Bobby Jindal promotes his Iowa town hall meeting, Macy’s is the latest to hit Donald Trump but, he’s a hit with Republicans.  And more news via twitter:

 

The Latino population in the greater New Orleans area underwent a dramatic shift following Katrina and the levee failures. New Latino immigrants who arrived to work in the area added substantially to the pre-Katrina Latino population, nearly doubling the number of Latino residents in the area. 

These immigrants increased the proportion of folks who did not speak English well, many without legal status. 

Latino immigrants made vital contributions to the rebuilding of New Orleans, but local and state jurisdictions were challenged to address their needs because of language barriers and questions about their legal status.

How these post-Katrina immigrants incorporate into the New Orleans area will have an impact on the region's resilience in the face of future hazards.  

Local and regional public institutions can respond proactively to ensure that this segment of the population is incorporated successfully, strengthening social ties and fostering resiliency for the whole community going forward.
