Most of the debate on immigration focuses on Hispanics as low wage workers.
In my community directory building business, I've noticed that the Hispanic community has a strong entrepreneurial spirit. Look at the numbers. The consensus that Latinos are taking jobs that no-one else wants is falls short. There are more Latinos running around than there are jobs that no one wants. The truth of the matter is that the Hispanic community is creating jobs!
In our efforts at drafting immigration reform, we need to make sure that we do not undermine this entrepreneurial spirit. One of the centers of this entrepreneurial spirit is the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
