Conventional Politics Takes Center Stage: The Latino Struggle against English-Only Laws.
Santoro, Wayne A.
Social Forces, v77 n3 p887-909 Mar 1999
A study of U.S. English-only legislation found that Latino voting blocs and state legislators, not extrainstitutional resources, helped limit passage of English-only statutes in the 1980s. In four states that ratified such statutes by citizen-initiated referenda, however, Latino institutional and extrainstitutional resources did not prevent adoption of the policy.
