¡HAGASE CONTAR! Latino groups from around the nation are expressing concerns about undercounting the nearly 50 million Latinos in the upcoming U.S. Census. A broad coalition is responding with the largest campaign to motivate Latinos to participate in the 2010 Census. Others, in Arizona and Texas, are calling to boycott the census count unless the federal government pledges to suspend deportation raids in immigrant communities.
