Opinion: Sotomayor’s surprise
BY ESTHER J. CEPEDA
CHICAGO — When Sonia Sotomayor made history in 2009 by becoming the first Latina named to the Supreme Court, Hispanics were overjoyed.
Her story was a deeply satisfying one about the Bronx-bred daughter of Puerto Rican parents who, despite coming from humble means, made it to the big leagues of justice.
I don’t understand what hte problem is. Why should Sotomayor be sympathetic to illegal immigrants? Yes she’s latino but she’s Puerto Rican! Puerto Rican’s are not illegal immigrants!!!
