“Shots were fired inside the Capitol—this is a seditious, treacherous act to delegitimize votes," Sanchez said. Loyal Latino Trump supporters tried to shift the blame for the violent protests, claiming on social media that communists, Antifa members and pedophiles were among the protesters. In Miami, where Trump’s performance helped him win the state, supporters led a long caravan through the streets to protest Congress’ count of the Nov. 3 votes. Republican strategist Bertica Cabrera Morris said she’s 100 percent against violence, but “I don’t believe everyone there was a Trump supporter. “Democracy is at stake and we won’t let it die on our watch.”Follow NBC Latino on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The United States closed out 2020 with the deadliest and most infectious month since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, while also surpassing 20 million confirmed Covid-19 cases. The second-deadliest month was April 2020, with more than 58,000 deaths. However, Dr. Mercedes Carnethon, vice chair of preventive medicine at Northwestern University, said experts are "fairly confident this variant is now everywhere." Only about 2.8 million people have received vaccines since the start of vaccinations in mid-December, even though the Trump administration aimed to vaccinate at least 20 million people by the start of the new year. As the state prepares to potentially report its millionth case this Saturday, officials have said they hope to get at least a million people vaccinated this month.

Overall representation for Latinos on television was 5.5 percent throughout 2019, even though Latinos represent nearly 19 percent of the nation’s population. There is better representation on subscription video platforms, such as Netflix and Amazon, where Latino representation was at 10 percent, while broadcast had 5 percent and cable 3 percent. Among other Latino subgroups, the representation of LGBTQ Latinx people and Afro-Latinas on screen was "almost invisible," said de Armas. Not to mention, seeing a driven, unabashed, yet still flawed girl on TV would have been so affirming," said Peña. “Perhaps, as Latinos are showcased more online, Latinos are actually flocking to these sorts of platforms and to streaming content, because there is better representation of Latinos," said de Armas.

"Being with my family on my island is my safe haven," Smalls said.

Rodríguez's remarkable, 30-year trajectory started with his first feature film, “El Mariachi,” which reached commercial success in the early 1990s after grossing $2 million against a budget of $7,000. Then in 2001, he embarked on what became the successful "Spy Kids" trilogy. In the same spirit of “Spy Kids,” Rodríguez made the superhero fantasy film “The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl” in 2005. Racer, who created the characters of Sharkboy and Lavagirl when he was 7, is a producer on the film. “It was so difficult to get ‘Spy Kids’ made with Latin leads because there weren't enough writers who were creating roles like that,” he recalled.

Miguel Cardona, Connecticut’s first Latino commissioner of education, is poised to become the nation's next education secretary — a pick that satisfies President-elect Joe Biden's campaign promise to appoint someone with public school experience, after President Donald Trump’s education secretary, Betsy DeVos, was criticized for championing private schools and being an out-of-touch billionaire. If confirmed, Cardona would be the first Puerto Rican and the second Latino secretary of education, after Lauro Cavazos, who served in the Reagan and Bush administrations. In 1998, Cardona returned to the public school system that he had attended as a child, this time as a fourth-grade teacher. Amid his efforts to reopen schools in Connecticut this year, Cardona managed to garner support from the state's teachers unions. "Miguel Cardona’s formative experience as a teacher and administrator has been critical to his accomplishments as Connecticut Education Commissioner.
