This study critically investigates how new articles published in WA represent Mexican immigrants. The findings reveal that local news media construct Mexican immigrants as the racial “Other” through dialectical articulation and assimilationist rhetoric. Key implications for future research will be offered at the end for continued exploration of media representation of immigrants.
