Hispanics object to Alito

Several news reports have cited objections of Hispanic leaders to the Samuel Alito. Here is one of them:

Several leaders of Hispanic organizations expressed opposition Thursday to the likely Senate confirmation of Samuel Alito as a Supreme Court justice, predicting his accession to the bench would erode civil rights and advances made by Hispanics in the United States.

During a press conference, the leaders said their opposition to Alito was due to analysis of his 15-year record as a federal judge, and to the fact that, in their opinion, he has been hostile to the interests of minorities.Alito "is not the best person" for the Hispanic community and his judicial record shows that, said Gabriela Lemus, director of policy and legislation for the League of United Latin American Citizens.
