In an open letter addressed to Latino voters, Latino celebrities, including Aubrey Plaza, America Ferrera, Zoe Saldana, and Carlos Santana, called out the racist policies and comments being bandied about by the GOP presidential candidates this election cycle.
Of course, this downward spiral began with Trump. From accusing Mexicans of being rapists to kicking Jorge Ramos out of his press conference, Trump has spent the entirety of his presidential bid stoking unfounded anti-immigrant fears and deeply offending our communities.
We must not, though, let Trump’s xenophobia overshadow the extreme policies being pushed by every single one of the GOP’s leading presidential candidates. Latinos should understand that Donald Trump embodies the true face of the entire Republican Party. Sadly, he speaks for the GOP’s anti-immigrant, anti-Latino agenda.
