Julian Castro: Trump’s Hateful Rhetoric is Not Welcome in Our Community

TEXAS–(ENEWSPF)–June 16, 2016.  The Honorable Julian Castro released the following statement in response to Donald Trump’s visit to Texas today and tomorrow:

“Donald Trump’s message to the Latino community is clear: You are not American. In Trump’s America, Latinos wouldn’t be welcome, our LGBT brothers and sisters wouldn’t be able to marry who they love, and Americans would be discriminated against because of their religion. In a time where the Latino community is under attack, we need a leader who will be a partner, not someone who treats Latinos like second class citizens. We need a leader who will break down barriers for us, not build a wall. We need a leader who will strive for inclusion, not division. For this and so many other reasons, Donald Trump has proven once again that he’s not qualified and he’s temperamentally unfit to be President. As Trump visits Texas over the next few days, let it be clear that his hateful rhetoric is not welcome in our community.  Let it be clear that we will raise our voices against him in November.”
