review (excerpt)of Tato Laveria's book by Rigoberto González, The El Paso Times:
"Language is not the only way politics manifests in 'Mixturao.' So is the call to action to the Puerto Rican community that enriches this country, linguistically and otherwise.
'Carpetas in Your Dossier' issues a warning about the gentrification 'targeting our cultural centers,' and 'Consignas in Brutality' invites everyone to speak up about abuses against the people: 'no justice, no peace, el silencio nos mata aquí.' Particularly touching is Laviera's 'Southwest Border Trucos,' in which he acknowledges the growing Mexican population of New York:
When you see mexicanos ilegales
Selling fruits and flowers in all kinds of weather
Bow your head
To a formidable free nation
To a great Latino people
To a great Hispano nation
La voz de Aztlán speaking in deed!"
