This Week’s Highlights

The economy, jobs and health care will most influence the voting decisions of registered Latino voters in Texas, California and Clark County, Nevada, Telemundo polls released last Friday show. But impeachment and removing President Donald Trump also are figuring into their decisions, according to the polls. Majorities in all three locations supported the impeachment and removal of Trump from office: In California, it was 59 percent, in Clark County, 58 percent and less so in Texas, at 52 percent. Just over 80 percent of Nevada’s Latino voters live in Clark County, which includes Las Vegas. In all three locations, about two-thirds of those polled disapproved of Trump’s performance thus far.

Let’s take a look at Colombia. Around $1.35 billion in funding will be needed to provide healthcare, education, nutrition and other services to Venezuelan migrants and to help their hosts in 2020, non-governmental organizations said on Wednesday. The request for increased donations from countries around the world is the most recent of repeated appeals for help for the 4.6 million Venezuelans who have fled shortages of food and medicine in their homeland in recent years. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said they would start a coordination and fundraising effort for next year for projects aimed at migrants and host communities in 17 countries.

And the Latin Grammy Goes To…

Spanish artist Rosalía took the Latin Grammys by storm Thursday night as the award show celebrated its 20th anniversary. Her second studio album, “El Mal Querer,” took home all the awards it was nominated for, including Best Album Of The Year, one of the top awards of the night, and Contemporary Pop Album Of The Year. “We did this album sitting on the floor, with two computers, a keyboard and a microphone. I swear to God. And then, we worked on it for a year and a half. That was it,” said Rosalía in Spanish at the Latin Grammy stage in Las Vegas. “Winning a Grammy is the best thing that can ever happen.”

The artist also took home Best Urban Song for hit “Con Altura,” alongside Colombian reggaeton artist J Balvin. ¡Fantástica!

Art & Entertainment

FIRST LOOK: ABC has put into development a Latinx family restaurant comedy inspired by the memoir by celebrity chef Aarón Sánchez. The project hails from The Real O’Neals writer-producer Rob Sudduth, Eva Longoria and Ben Spector’s UnbeliEVAble Entertainment and 20th TV. Penned by Sudduth, the untitled Where I Come From project centers on divorced chef Zoila Sanchez, who has always told stories through her food, and her twin sons. As they all struggle to make sense of their odd new world after their recent move to the Big Apple, they must lean on each other like never before and use the family business to forge a new community — one meal at a time.
