Under her spell

Neumann-Ortiz a national voice for immigration issues, according to Georgia Pabst's profile of the founder and executive director of Voces de la Frontera, in Sunday's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Neumann-Ortiz, 42, stands just 5 feet tall, with brown eyes and long brown hair, and speaks softly in conversation. But she isn't shy about shouting into a megaphone when she's pumping up the crowds at rallies and marches, chanting the now familiar "Si se puede."
That's Spanish for "If we can."

    "Yes, we can"
    Your Latin is getting in the way.

  2. "'Yes, we can'"

    That would be Sí se puede, not Si se puede.

    My mistake. I read what I thought you were saying instead of what you actually wrote.
