Latino crime, delinquency and immigration:
What we should know before we vote
Myrna Cintrón, PhD
The Latino population is fast becoming the
largest minority group in the United States.
This population group is the main reason for
immigration’s central topic in the last and in
the next election. Latinos are also becoming a
large component of both the adult and juvenile
justice systems, research findings indicate
Latino males, young and adult, are overrepresented in the nation’s federal and state
justice systems. This presentation discusses
current political environment, research as well
as the social, historical, and environmental
causes of Latino youth’s involvement in
delinquency with implication for the future.
