Analysis of the impact of the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" on Latinos in Florida, California, Arizona, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Illinois. Across the United States, the Hispanic population is significant and growing. The Hispanic community’s size, work ethic, and resilience have contributed to the state’s economic resurgence following the Great Recession. Nevertheless, a considerable portion of Latinos continue to lag behind, struggling to put food on their tables and a roof over their heads. Instead of helping Latinos working hard and struggling to make ends meet, the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” would threaten to push them into or deeper into poverty, through increased taxes and decreased spending on crucial assistance programs.
