TwitterEmailPrintSave StoryFacebookTwitterEmailPrintSave StoryLatinos are poised to become the majority in Texas in a matter of years. Will they bring their power to bear in the 2020 election?Photographs by Bill McCullough for The New YorkerThe weekend before Super Tuesday, Manuel Ortiz, a student at the University of Texas at Austin, drove to Montopolis, a majority Latino neighborhood on the city s southeastern edge. He was joined by four other college students, all canvassers for the Texas Youth Power Alliance, an initiative that aims to register three hundred thousand new voters before November. Ivy, the group s field organizer, parked her aqua Honda in front of Nuestra Se ora de los Dolores, a Mission style Catholic church built in the fifties. She wore oversized glasses and spoke to the others in a sweetly commanding tone. Avoid dogs, she said. Don t go through No Trespassing signs, gated areas, or ones with, like, a gun sign. The shadow of the 2016 election, when Texas, reliably red, registered among the lowest voter turnouts of any state, loomed over the canvassers efforts. Ortiz, who was dressed in a light wash denim jacket adorned with pins of Selena, a raised fist, and a prickly pear was feeling restless but keen. As a canvasser, he has developed a sort of poised patience and has learned to listen without pressing. His cacti patterned bag was filled with dozens of voting guides en espa ol.Latinos, who make up nearly forty per cent of the state s twenty nine million people, have long had the lowest turnout of any demographic group in Texas. Within his family, Ortiz told me, he is the most dedicated voter. His older sister had called the day before to say that she had cast her ballot in the Democratic primary, but he had not yet convinced his parents to do so. My mom got really uncomfortable in the last Senate election, he said. She felt overwhelmed with the system, those weird voting machines they can scare people. His parents are from San Luis Potos , a state in central Mexico known for its mining industry. They settled in Southern California in the eighties, and became eligible for amnesty under a sweeping immigration reform bill signed by Ronald Reagan in 1986. Before Ortiz was born, the family moved to Eula, a settlement in northern Texas, where residents have been voting Republican since the late sixties and Latinos remain a minority. The outcome of the 2016 election, Ortiz s first as a voter, hurt a lot to see, he told me. All of those people had heard his Donald Trump s hateful rhetoric and they were O.K. with it. But it also made me want to fight back. Early this year, he had mailed an absentee ballot back home. I want people from my area, which is generally a lot more conservative, to know that there is some Democratic presence there, he said.

More than three quarters (76 percent) of U.S. colleges said that outreach and recruitment of students from China has been affected by the new coronavirus, according to a survey from the Institute of International Education.A total of 234 colleges and universities responded to the survey, which focused on student mobility to and from China, where the new coronavirus originated. The survey found that a substantial number of colleges have not made alternative recruitment plans in response to restrictions on travel to and from China. This is significant, as China is the biggest source of international students for U.S. colleges and many colleges depend on Chinese student enrollments to help balance their budgets.

Nutrition experts with the federal government have unveiled new criteria for ensuring that school aged children across America receive their daily dose of vegetables while limiting the amount of food waste, and it comes in a clever little disguise.Under the new regulations officially rolled out last week, the US Department of Agriculture now includes pasta made from 100 percent vegetable based flour or noodles made from whole vegetables, like spiralized zucchini or sweet potatoes, to count toward a daily vegetable requirement. Officials say it puts control into the hands of school officials and allows for common sense flexibility when it comes to serving food based on the needs of students.
