Senator Bob Menendez’s Book: Growing American Roots

“Bob Menendez was born in New York City to Cuban immigrants who left their homeland a few months earlier, in 1953, seeking economic and political freedom from the repressive government headed by Fulgencio Batista. His father, Mario, was a mechanic and his mother, Evangelina, a seamstress. The family subsequently moved to neighboring New Jersey, where he now serves as United States Senator (D).



Growing American Roots: Why Our Nation Will Thrive as Our Largest Minority Flourishes by Senator Bob Menendez

The high-profile senator shares his vision of a promising future for America with Hispanics playing an essential and valued role.

Senator Bob Menendez has long been disturbed by the rhetoric of media figures like Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh, who, he believes, are spreading fear and misconceptions about the Latino community. For Menendez, who has held the highest-ranking position for a Hispanic in congressional history, it is about time the truth about Hispanics and their potential in this nation is brought into the spotlight—for all the right reasons.

Instead of viewing Latinos as the growing cause of many of America’s problems, he sees quite the opposite—and in this book he takes a unique approach by imagining a hopeful future for our nation. With the step-by-step plan that Menendez has devised and proposes in this book, the United States’ future will be made brighter and more successful precisely because of, not in spite of, the burgeoning influence of the Hispanic population as it “grows its American roots.”

Senator Bob Menendez is the first person of Hispanic ethnicity to represent New Jersey in the U.S. Senate, and only the sixth Hispanic in history to serve in that body.
