COLUMN: Rep. PETE AGUILAR works on House Select Committee to hold Jan. 6 attackers accountable

Politics is akin to a sport but what transpired on Jan. 6, 2021 was not a game. It was an assault on our democracy and the ring leaders, including President Donald Trump, should be held accountable. At the third hearing held Thursday morning a California Latino Congressman figured prominently. U.S. Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-Calif., represents the 31st district that includes the Inland Empire and parts of San Bernardino, Rancho Cucamonga and Upland. He is the only Latino on the committee.

COLUMN: Mexican president snubs the U.S. at the Summit of Americas in LA

Latin America has not been at the top of the foreign policy agenda since Biden took office and it should be given priority. Rather than give a cold shoulder to those we disagree with, we should try to negotiate and work with them to strengthen human rights and their economies. The Summit of Americas is an opportunity for the U.S. to improve relations with our neighbors to the south. Hopefully, enough of them will show up to have a meaningful dialogue.

How I answer, how I identify, depends on the day and who is asking.
