To be brutally honest, the Hispanic population is underrepresented in the judicial ranks of Harris County, Texas – that’s a fact. I don’t believe that any rational open-minded person can dispute this reality. And with the Biden Administration’s loosening of immigration laws, the Hispanic population is going to experience a boom over the next few years – especially in Houston, Texas. So, the question that should be reverberating through Democratic and Republican circles is this, “How do we create more opportunities for “DULY-QUALIFIED” Hispanic attorneys to join the ranks of the judiciary in Harris County, Texas in the 2022 Midterm Election?” And nope, this isn’t identity politics. Something has to be done over the next few months. I’m not going to delve to deeply into this right now, but if you take a look at the current makeup of the judicial ranks highlighted below, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about as it relates to Harris County, Texas.
