    Only 3% of State Supreme Court Justices in U.S. Are Latino



    Only 3% of State Supreme Court Justices in U.S. Are Latino

    By Amanda Hernandez

    Published April 18, 2011

    While Latinos make up 16 percent of the population of the United States, Latino judges make up only 3 percent of state supreme court justices across the country.

    According to an analysis by Fox News Latino, only 10 out of a total of 326 state supreme court justices are Latino.

    That number includes last month’s retirement of California judge Carlos R. Moreno, but not that of New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Roberto Rivera-Soto, the first and only Hispanic justice on the state’s highest court, who has announced that he will not seek re-nomination when his term ends in September.

    The low number seems all the more significant now, on the heels of the newly released 2010 Census data that shows the Hispanic population at 50 million.

    Latino leaders, including former Latino state Supreme Court justices, worry about the dearth.

    “It is really important that the court ought to look like New Mexico,

    "Well now we know why amnesty is so important!"

    "Thanks for the heads up!"

    This number will be much lower the next election cycle!

    there we go again, using illegals to prop their numbers. if you strip the illegal population at the very least Latino are not 16 % of teh population. About 30% of their entire population is here illegally! you do the math.

    But if it needed explaining again it is clear that so-called leaders in the Hispanic community are encouraging this unAmerican crass demographic hegemony muscle flexing! Latin Americans come from corrupt countries and are seeking to establish that culture here. Period.

    Enough - deport all illegals and stop using the label, Hispanic! Otherwise let's bring up teh German label and let's flex those muscles. More than 52 million Americans, Americans (born here) are of German Heritage. How about that?

    The Law School Admission Test is a test and it is not based on the color of your skin. I am sick and tired of this nonsense. If you fail the test, it's simple, you failed the test. And it probably is because you didn't work hard enough, period. This diversity affirmative action nonsense almost says that whites are so superior that the tests are built for whites and therefore other races and ethnicities are doomed to fail! Oh really? Why don't Latino leaders look at what Asians achieve. Are Asians white? Or perhaps they work hard, and yes that's the key and on top of that they also have very supportive families. Combine work ethic and family and you can see why Asians surpass even whites! Latinos are supposed to have values like "communidad, familia, etc etc". Isn't it what we hear are the time? Perhaps Latinos ought to assimilate, integrate and stop holding on to Spanish and put all their chips on America and English. Just saying

    Here we go. Demands for more latino state Supreme Court Justices cannot be far behind because as we all know, only a diverse court can render decisions that are in accordance with a latino perspective. :roll

    You are absolutely right on! This is America...Not Latino-America (YET)...Do we worry that there aren't enough Polish, Russian, French, Polynesian, etc. Justices???? Of course not. Get over it, Latinos..The rest of us have!

    What's the average age of a judge? I'll take a wild guess and say 50. Common sense tells me 50 years ago latinos were a small minority of the births so there is going to be a small minority on the courts right now.

    The rest are in prison or on parole.

    I figure that's about equal in proportion to the 25%-30% of them who are pro-assimilation...for the rest...who cares?
