The article relates the discrimination faced by Arizona's first Hispanic Governor, Raul Castro, amid the controversy over its immigration policies. Opponents associated him with Cuban communist Fidel Castro when he ran the second time in 1974. He focused his campaign in rural areas and Navajo Indian reservations. He had a hard time finding employment because of his ethnicity but eventually became former U.S. President Lyndon Johnson's Ambassador to El Salvador and Bolivia in the 1960s.
