Concerned about the Hispanic community? If you are, be sure to tune into “Tiempo.”

“Tiempo” is a weekly round-table discussion show about topics affecting and relating to Hispanic citizens.

First, the push for Hispanic voters and why that is so absolutely critical as we forge ahead to the mid-term elections.

Secondly, securing greater Latino representation in the New York City police department.

We start with a brand new bi-lingual public service announcement, aimed at getting as many Hispanics to vote in the upcoming November elections. It’s all part of the Hispanic institute’s 20-14 get out the vote campaign.

We are in the midst of Hispanic Heritage Month and later, we’ll talk about how parents can get their children engaged in celebrating their heritage.

But we are going to start this morning with a major shift in policy by Suffolk County sheriff’s office on how and when to hold undocumented immigrants.

Suffolk County will no longer jail immigrants who are flagged for deportation unless federal officials issue warrants. The move separates the county from a controversial immigration and customs enforcement program known as “secure communities.”

Part 1 & Part 2 “Daniel Altschuler an organizer from Make the Road New York, speaks about deportation and what happens to immigrants in this country.”
