Presenter: Alberto Gonazalez

After the general election of 2012 -where the Latino vote was characterized as increasingly influential-the reform of federal immigration laws and policies became a high priority.  This presentation compares news coverage on immigration reform between the Latino-based La Prensa and dominant-culture news media.  This "ideographic" analysis focuses on how particular terms frame competing perspectives.
