Via our friends at LatinoLA.com, here’s an academic analysis of the issues involved:
Why the City of Los Angeles Should Legalize Street Vending
Street entrepreneurs should not be criminalized
By Vanessa Alcantar and Robert D. Flores Jr.
“¡Tamales! ¡Tamales! ¡Tamales!”
Growing up in the East L.A. and Pico Union neighborhoods of Los Angeles, this shouting is something everybody in the neighborhood is accustomed to because it provides a sense of home. To everyone in our households, this is the cue to scour through the house for cash and hurry outside to catch the tamale lady in time before she takes off.

The Taco Truck Party Manifesto: Make America Asada Again (video, toon)
We Are The Taco Truck Party
Here’s Our Plan To Make America Asada Again
The reaction to last week’s dark warning by a Latino Trump supporter that unchecked Mexicans will lead to “taco trucks on every corner” has exposed a beautiful truth: America loves loncheras.
But far too many taco fans only think of the food and not the people who make it. They fight to legalize carne asada, but not the millions of raza without papers in this country whose comida they happily grub.#tacotrucksoneverycorner is the perfect opportunity to educate the unwoke—and that’s why we formed The Taco Truck Party.
People will trash Mexicans all day and the nation shrugs, but say one bad word against the taco truck down the street, and America revolts—and rightfully so.
The taco truck represents America at its finest: multicultural, forward-thinking, entrepreneurial, and with al pastor always, slowly twirling. They have spread from their birthplace of Los Angeles to all points of the United States, with street vendors and the chorizo guy who sells door to door not far behind.
But this important constituency has no national party fighting for them—until now.
