According to the U.S Census Bureau (1970-1990), by 2020, Texas will no longer have a majority population due to the increase in Hispanics, African Americans, and Asians. (Bouvier, Leon F., and John L. Martin) One of the most evident challenges that is presented to the Texas government is the quality of education that minorities receive.

The increasing numbers of Latino youth who obtain college degrees are become active in politics, with the biggest trend of Latino population is youth and growth we can only hope for even more support in politics. “For the first time ever, Latinos accounted for one in ten votes cast nationwide in the presidential election, and Obama recorded the highest ever vote total for any presidential candidate among Latinos, at 75%” (Barreto and Segura 145).
