Not if their ancestry comes directly from Spain (or Portugal) relatively recently rather than via Spaniards and Portuguese who settled in the Americas and, in many cases, mixed with the indigenous peoples starting centuries ago.
In other words, if your grandparents immigrated from Spain and settled in Chicago in the 1950s, you are not really considered Latino.

The US uses those words incorrectly
The Latins are the people who built the city of Rome, the come from Latina
The Latins conquered the people of Hispania (modern Spain and Portugal)
The Latino from Hispania conquered Mesoamerica
The Hispani and Latini are not the same as South or Central Americans
What you should also remember is not that there have been a few different populations living in Iberia Hispania, not all of them claimed Latino in the first place.
