This rhetoric takes form as official policy carried out by the CBP and ICE; is fueled by the dehumanizing, hate-filled speeches and tweets of President Trump. It is given further impetus by the enabling cowardice of GOP leadership; and used by the white nationalists who take the words of the president and the failure to condemn that speech as a green light. And it must STOP.
LatinoJustice sends its condolences to the families of the people killed in the attack on a synagogue in Pittsburgh this weekend and hopes that the Jewish community may recover from this trauma as quickly as possible. Our houses of worship should be sanctuaries for peace and reflection and this racist attack has no place in a civilized country.
