The Battle Of 187, Part 3: Thank You, Pete Wilson The third and final episode of our Prop 187 miniseries in collaboration with the Los Angeles Times. Just one day after the 1994 election, federal and state lawsuits are filed claiming 187 is unconstitutional. And though 187 finally dies for good in 1999, Latinos in California never forget it. Prop 187 inspired more Latinos than ever before to register to vote and to run for office in California. Host Gustavo Arellano ends with one question: given President Donald Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric, are we poised to experience another 187 at a national scale?
