Before his untimely death, columnist Carlos Guerra delivers strong argument for immigration reform

LatinaLista -- Today, I received sad news that a colleague, Carlos Guerra, had died. Carlos was a former columnist with the San Antonio Express-News and after he left the newspaper he did what most retired or laid-off journalists do -- kept writing.

While he could have enjoyed his retirement, he instead embarked on a new journalistic quest. He, along with some friends, created a site called NewsTaco. Carlos was devoting a lot of his writings to what most independent Latino journalists are writing about these days -- immigration reform and the DREAM Act.
