How silly is this, to allow those who by law should not be here, defending others who should not be here???

Hopefully this is declared discriminatory because every other criminal in the state of California denied any kind of professional license or certification should sue the state.

Does a law firm have to hire an ILLEGAL alien even though they are licensed?

From Farm Workers to Wine Makers—Latinos are a Growing Force in the Wine Industry

Napa and Sonoma counties in California are considered Mecca for wine making in the United States. But from the 1960s on, it’s been the Latino labor force behind the wineries fueling the industry.

Today, many of its workers have become wine owners and influencers. With labels like Maldonado, Alex Sotelo, Ceja, Mi Sueno, and Robledo, sommelier/wine director Jesse Rodríguez, and radio host and associate member of the Napa/Sonoma Mexican-American Vintners Association, Sandra González, the faces of the wine world are slowly changing.

The stories are unique but similar. The young immigrant men and women moving to the US to pick grapes; migrant farm workers who see possibilities beyond the fields.

I became a farmer to survive. I worked 60-hour weeks in the vineyards at the Robert Pecota winery. After a while I was put in charge of the field. Then I was given an opportunity to work in the lab.

- Alex Sotelo, winery owner

“I was sent to the US when I was 18. I didn’t speak English. I became a farmer to survive. I worked 60-hour weeks in the vineyards at the Robert Pecota winery. After a while I was put in charge of the field. Then I was given an opportunity to work in the lab,” said winery owner Alex Sotelo.

“We have a great work ethic as a people and we know the industry.”

“I feel like I got my start working at my grandparent’s restaurant, Jimmy’s Casa in Beaumont California, near Riverside. I did everything from picking up cigarette butts and cleaning toilets to waiting on tables. But every Sunday our family would sit down together and eat a five-course meal,” he said.“It was my introduction to the culinary industry I work in today. It’s probably why I have the attitude about wine as a grocery. It shouldn’t be thought of as for the elite only. It’s a vehicle to help bring out the taste in good food.”

“In 2003, we called it a ‘Get To Know You’ Harvest luncheon. I brought together all the growers, vintners, wine makers, and culinary people—all the Latino wine influencers. People were so excited. It was a very positive and inspiring event.”

In 2004, González organized an event called “Sabor de Napa”. It was the first ever-public wine tasting event in US, bringing together US Latino vintners, chefs and artists.

“In 2004 we created the Hispanic Vintners Alliance, which six years later became the Napa/Sonoma Mexican-American Vintners Association, González said.“The mission then is the same today. We’re trying to bring the next generations into the industry. We want to educate consumers as well of the many roles of Latinos in these areas.”

Over 40 percent of the Napa Valley is Latino, but only 3 percent are in powerful positions within the wine business.

“That has to change,” says Hugo Maldonado of Maldonado wineries.

Maldonado is the only Latino owned winery with caves where they’re able to bottle and store wine in Napa.

Maldonado’s wines were served in the White House under President George Bush, and this year Maldonado’s 2009 Chardonnay, Los Olivos, was awarded 94 points out of 100 by Wine Spectator.

“Our wines are well received, but it’s challenging especially with a Latino label. But I’m convinced there’s a great wave of young people coming up. My daughter and her boyfriend are both studying Viticulture in college. We’re not just in the fields anymore,” Maldonado said.“We’re a force to be reckoned with.”

But does the information relate to thread, topic or posts at hand?

How does it counterbalance the topic and views. The tirade/rant isn't even put into context or proper perspective.

Looks like a hardcore case of attention deficit disorder since they cannot focus or stay on topic.

"Never Apologize For Being Correct
Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth. For being correct. For being you.

Never apologize for being correct,
or for being years ahead of your time.
