    A worker with the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights shouts instructions to a long line of young immigrants standing outside Chicago's Navy Pier on Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2012, waiting for guidance with a new federal program that would help them avoid deportation. Hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants scrambled to get papers in order, as the U.S. started accepting applications to allow them to avoid deportation and get a work permit, but not a path to citizenship. President Barack Obama announced the program in June after pressure from Hispanic voters and others who said he hasn't fulfilled a campaign promise to overhaul tangled U.S. immigration laws.

    Attorney Tom Liddy, who is representing Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the sheriff's office, leaves the Sandra Day O'Connor United States Courthouse after day one of Apraio's civil rights trial in Phoenix, Arizona July 19, 2012. Arpaio, who calls himself America's toughest sheriff, went on trial Thursday in a class-action lawsuit alleging he discriminates against Latinos and legal immigrants in a zeal to crack down on illegal immigration. The case will test whether the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) can target the undocumented in immigration sweeps without racially profiling Hispanic citizens. REUTERS/Joshua Lott

    A supporter of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio walks past the Sandra Day O'Connor United States Courthouse, during day one of Apraio's and his sheriff's department civil rights trial in Phoenix, Arizona July 19, 2012. The suit contends that Arpaio, who styles himself "America's toughest sheriff," and his officers violate the constitutional rights of both Hispanic citizens and legal immigrants alike in their zeal to crack down on people they believe to be illegal immigrants in the Phoenix valley.

    FILE - In this Oct. 27, 2006, file photo, then-Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, speaks after taking a tour with Rep. Jean Schmidt, R-Ohio, at Total Quality Logistics, Inc., a truckload freight brokerage company in Milford, Ohio. President Barack Obama's 2012 re-election team is running upbeat ads on Spanish-language stations in pivotal election states _ a sharp contrast to the hard-hitting commercials in English that the incumbent's campaign is airing against Republican rival Mitt Romney. Romney hasn't given up on Hispanic voters. During the first week of June 2012, Romney's campaign announced Juntos con Romney, a Hispanic leadership team led by Gutierrez. "The Hispanic community has been especially hard-hit by President Obama's policies," Gutierrez said in a statement. "Mitt Romney has a proven record of creating jobs both in the private sector and as governor." (AP Photo/David Kohl)

The soaring Hispanic population in Texas may not help Hispanic congressional hopefuls in the state's primary elections Tuesday, May 29, 2012. Two of the new districts are predominately Hispanic. But the front-runner in one is Doggett, a nine-term representative, who is white, while Hispanic candidates in the other face a strong opponent in state lawmaker Mark Veasey, who is black.
