Up to 10 million Hispanics could be dissuaded from voting in the upcoming election because of changes to voting laws, a report from a civil rights group will say.

I find it curious that if the republicans are so convinced that their candidate will be elected in November why they need to keep creating laws based on lies to obstruct voters from casting their ballot. Thanks Carrie

Latins are highly motivated to participate; they will do it what it takes to be heard, to make their votes count, and to change the status quo of American corporate politics.

Thanks Carrie for the link to the USA TODAY news article by Catalina Camia. Latinos and people of color will be the difference in those key states and they will find a legal way to participate and vote. Read and noted.

The GOP knows that Latinos are a huge and increasingly powerful segment of the population and if they can't be swayed to the conservative side then the only other option is to disenfranchise them and do whatever it takes to make sure their voices are not heard at the polls. Big mistake! Thanks Carrie.

Why are "attempts to remove non-citizens from voter rolls" being spoken of in this article negatively, whether those efforts have a "disproportionate effect" on Latinos or not? Non-citizens aren't supposed to be on voter rolls to begin with.

Antonia, I am guessing you did not read the entire sentence you are trying to quote: " requirements to prove citizenship and attempts to remove non-citizens from voter rolls in states such as Florida -- will have a "disproportionate effect" on Latinos and people of color. I do believe that "disproportionate effect" is the key phrase here. It has already been proven time and time again that the instances of voter fraud is so small as to be almost immeasurable.

Yes, Carrie B, I did indeed read the whole sentence. And believe my question's valid. Author's foolish in that instance.
