Trump’s Hate Spreads to Congress: Democrats Are Immigrants Last Line of Defense

Presente Action Calls for Democrats to End Attacks on Sanctuary Cities

July 23, 2015

Statement from Arturo Carmona, Executive Director of Presente.org:

“Between Donald Trump and these attacks on sanctuary cities, the GOP appears to be waging all out attacks on Latino families. As we have long known—using local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws leads to racial profiling, police harassment, and distrust on all sides. A vote to attack sanctuary cities is a vote against Latino families and communities. And now some Democrats appear to be joining in on these attacks. It’s a shocking betrayal that threatens to legitimize Trump and his Republican allies' anti-immigrant fearmongering. We can’t let it go unanswered. In a national petition, thousands of Presente members and allies call for Democrats to stand on the side of Latinos and immigrants families and resist these attacks on sanctuary cities.”
