Hispanics Against "The Barrio"

Just in case you think that a Hispanic-majority state rep. district is something that all Hispanics want: Former Arkansas LULAC Director Shawn McGrew is having a meeting this evening in Rogers about the idea of a majority-Hispanic district. He is against the idea. Any such district would have to take the Hispanic areas of both Springdale and Rogers, snaking through Lowell along the way, to get the needed voting majority.

Some Hispanic leaders in Rogers don't want the shots being called from Springdale, others think that it would be unwise to over-concentrate all of their influence in one district.
