Does Non-Hispanic or Latino mean Non-Hispanic Latino?

What does non-hispanic or latino mean?  Does it mean Non-Hispanic Latino, meaning a Latino that is not Hispanic?

    A non Hispanic Latino would be someone of Latin American heritage who isn't a native Spanish speaker, like a Lusophonic Brazilian for instance.

    No.  It's poorly written.  It's supposed to mean someone who isn't Hispanic or Latino.  It should say "non-Hispanic and non-Latino".
