Bob Moore And The 2022 Elections

Last year El Paso Politics published several articles about the rise of El Paso Hispanic’s political engagement in the 1990’s and the creation of a leadership group designed to empower Latinos more politically. As readers may have observed, El Paso Hispanics, although most of the population, wield little political power in the community because various factions within the Latino community have led to infighting allowing the minority Anglo community to set the political agenda for the city. The case of Fermin Dorado, demonstrates that when Hispanics threaten the business interests of the Anglo business owners, narratives of criminality and the legal system is used to discourage further erosion of taxpayer-funded projects moving away from the Anglo business interests. Dorado was subjected to a criminal narrative that had no basis as demonstrated by multiple law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, finding no criminal activity. The Abraham Chavez issue demonstrated that when Hispanics gather behind one of their own, they can force the Anglo majority to temporarily wield power because they fear “an explosion in the community”. Faced with an organized Latino community, the bankers, who controlled El Paso politics at the time, yielded to the demands of the Latinos with a simple telephone call.
