"Azteca America has been an instrumental voice of representation for the Latino community in Washington and we're delighted to announce the relaunch of this influential segment," said Luis J.

Beginning Friday, March 15 at 5 pm/ 4pm CST, the first segment will highlight the participation of Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and his campaign for immigrant issues to be included in the reforms. Congressman Gutierrez has long been one of the most outspoken voices for Latino rights in Congress and a firm believer in very progressive immigration reform.
Armando Guzmán interviewed numerous US presidents and vice presidents, as well as world figures such as Mikhail Gorbachev, Boris Yeltsin, Lech Walesa, Nelson Mandela, Yasser Arafat, Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair and countless Latin American presidents.
As a war correspondent, he was the first Latino journalist to ever broadcast from the USS Air Carrier Theodore Roosevelt during the 2001 US invasion of Afghanistan.
He has been recognized by numerous organizations for his journalistic contributions, including the Edward R. Murrow award in 1996 and the "Premio Nacional de Periodismo," Mexico's National Journalism Award, for his coverage of the September 11 attacks in 2001.
