TE NOT TEA:

The 2010 Congressional Reapportionment and Latinos (Mark Hugo Lopez, Associate Director, Pew Hispanic Center, and Paul Taylor, Director, 1/05/11, Pew Hispanic Center)

Hispanic voters are nearly three times more prevalent in states that gained congressional seats and Electoral College votes in the 2010 reapportionment than they are in states that lost seats, according to an analysis of Census data by the Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center. Based on averages reflecting congressional gains and losses, 15.2% of the eligible voter[1] population in states that gained seats is Hispanic, compared with just 5.4% of eligible voters in those states that lost seats.

With these reapportionment changes, Latinos likely will play a larger role in national politics in the coming decade.
