One thing to keep in mind about this stop, there are 2012 implications. Significant Salvadoran populations in some key swing states.
More than half of the total foreign-born population from El Salvador reside in just two states, California (40 percent) and Texas (14 percent). Other states with high percentages of Salvadoran foreign-born include New York (7 percent), Maryland (6.4 percent), Florida (4.8 percent) and the District of Columbia (4.4 percent).
I can already call California, New York, Maryland and D.C. for Obama and Texas for ______(R). If we’re talking Florida, what the president does, says, or visits in the Caribbean is far more important than El Salvador for 2012.
