Yovany Diaz was brought to the U.S. without papers when he was only seven, and he grew up in Georgia, speaking English. When his mom’s health issues required him to move “back” to Mexico City, this all-American ice hockey loving pocho found himself in a strange new world, even though it was “home.” James Frederick of NPR’s Latino USA has the story.
POCHO Jefe-in-Chief Lalo Alcaraz and POCHO Migrant Editor Al Madrigal (you may also know him from The Daily Show with Juan Estewart) are thankful for lots of stuff. Al is thankful that his son’s school’s athletic mascot is not racist, Lalo is thankful for his new Bordertown gig with Fox, and POCHO is thankful LatinoUSA with Maria Hinojosa let us share this audio from everyone’s favorite Latinos from the Future!

(PNS reporting from CENTRAL FLORIDA) Even George Zimmerman cannot believe what a total stupid asshole he is.
“Can you believe this guy? And by ‘this guy’, I mean ME. I keep getting pulled over for speeding, once I even had a gun in the glove compartment of my car! Me! A nationally hated guy, only famous for being a trigger happy dumbass who racially profiled and then killed a black child, is driving around the country over the speed limit, with a fucking gun! What balls I got on me! They must be made of brass! Let me check,” he said in an exclusive interview with PNS.
The 29-year-old self-styled Neighborhood Watch vigilante was detained this morning by police in Lake Mary, FLA after his estranged wife called 911 saying he had a gun and she was afraid for her life.
(PNS reporting from DIXIE) The City of Morrow, GA voted yesterday to ban “illegal alien paraphernalia.”
The small town (population 4882) banned the sale and use within the city limits of:
“Illegal alien paraphernalia including, but not limited to
- tortilla presses,
- international calling cards,
- Mexican Coca-Cola and
- Mexican soccer team accessories.”
The news wasn’t well received among Morrow’s small Hispanic community.
Five-year Morrow resident and Mexico native José Luis Gallegos said, “Qué se vayan a la chingada,” roughly translated as, “This is a heinous law.”
