Republican Hispanic Citizens In Action To Hold 2016 Hispanic Vote Summit Forum
Houston, Texas — The Republican Hispanic Citizens in Action (RHCIA) will hold a forum on the 2016 Hispanic Vote. The event’s title: The 2016 Hispanic Voter Summit Road to the Whitehouse. There will be a bi-partisan panel discussion that will headline the event. Moderating and leading the discussion is Houston media personalities and political commentators, Chris Tritico, Mustafa Tameez, and Jacquie Baly. Confirmed guests include two of Texas’ first Hispanic Constitutional officers: Secretary of State Carlos Cascos and Harris County’s Sheriff, Adrian Garcia.
Percentages of Hispanics in Harris County now outnumber Caucasians by over 10 percent, and the U.S. Census predicts a Hispanic majority by 2044. Political analysts predict the swing vote of undecided or voters without solid party alignment will rest on the Hispanic community. No candidate for the White House has won with less than 30 percent of the Hispanic vote dating back to the Clinton Administration. This places the Hispanic vote and voter as a front and center issue for politicians and their campaigns.
The 2016 Hispanic Voter Summit is expected to be an active and electric discussion of various topics of concern to the Hispanic vote. Topics such as DAPA and DACA, jobs, education, health care, immigration reform, border security, etc. all on the summit’s agenda. All are encouraged to attend, and attendees will have an opportunity to question panelists about issues.
The event will be held at Fratelli’s Ristorante. 1330 Wirt Road Houston, Texas 77055 on March 28, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., lunch may be purchased $15.00 cash only.
