Is illegal immigration passé? (Los Angeles Times):  The more pressing question now is what to do with the 11 million illegal immigrants from Mexico and elsewhere who are already here. Some Republicans want to redouble efforts to deport them; Mitt Romney has said he hopes they will “self-deport.”

The Growth Effect (The Wall Street Journal):  When the Pew Hispanic Center released a report last week showing that net migration to the U.S. from Mexico was now zero, a debate ensued over whether the cause was a weak U.S. economy or enhanced border security. Demographers, however, had long predicted that Mexican immigration would taper off sooner rather than later for different reasons.

Spain Officially in Recession (Hispanic Business): The Spanish economy is officially in a recession, after shrinking for two consecutive quarters, the National Statistics Institute (INE) said Monday.

Hasta La Vista, Aol Latino (Fox News Latino): Beginning today AOL Latino ceases to exist as we’ve known it for almost a decade, and instead will be making its way to become ‘Voces,’ yet another vertical of the almighty The Huffington Post Media Group.

Bienvenidos a la Familia!Introducing HuffPost Voces (Huffington Post): With the robust debate surrounding Latino issues — a debate that, regrettably, is far too often detached from the real experience of Latinos in America — there’s no better time for the launch of Voces.

Sombrero Shaped Galaxy Has Multiplied (LA Weekly):  It turns out the so-called Sombrero Galaxy — shaped like the Mexican hat — is now two. Ay Dios mio: Leave us Latinos alone for two seconds and — boom! — we multiply.
