DALLAS, TX – The 6th Annual Texas Diversity & Leadership Conference hosted the Hispanic/Latino Summit last Wednesday, April 7 in Rockwall, Texas. The Who’s Who on immigration, health care and other key issues gathered to discuss thei outlook on legislative actions taken by Congress and the White House.

Serving on the panel were Dr Alfredo Jimenez, Claudia Torrescano of Univision Radio and Margaret Pullés, government relations and communications advisor for Mexicans and Americans Thinking Together (MATT).

“The issue of immigration must be seen as an issue that affects all Americans and not as a Latino issue,” stated Pullés in her presentation on the Outlook of Immigration Reform. Immigration reform was presented from an economic, global competitiveness and homeland security perspective. “The time to act is now so we have a system that works for business and labor, ensures safe borders with a functional entry and exit system and incentivizes legal entry into the United States. Our current system fails on all levels.” Pulles spoke on the urgency to act now due to the economic “upswing” that is in the horizon and the need to have a comprehensive system in place before the United States becomes a giant magnet for migrant workers.

NEW YORK CITY, New York – March 3, 2010 This month’s Small Business Sentiment Survey (SBSS), conducted by Angrisani Turnarounds, LLC, with data provided by Toluna, Inc., demonstrated a small—but fragile—improvement in small business owners’ attitude toward the economy.

Fifty-nine percent of small business owners surveyed said they had no plans to open their wallets anytime soon for capital expenditures, while last month 62.7 percent said they were holding off on capital purchases. Additionally, 70 percent of those surveyed said they were not planning to hire full-time employees in the foreseeable future, as compared to 80.1 percent last month. Despite slight improvement over last month, the survey’s newest figures still compare poorly with the baseline from the October 2009 survey, when 52 percent of SBSS respondents said they were disinclined to hire new full-time employees.

Has the deficit replaced health care as the new threat to Small Business?
