In response to Donald Trump’s first general election TV ad, PFAW Director of Latinos Vote! Lizet Ocampo released the following statement:

“Trump’s new ad is nothing short of despicable. It vilifies immigrants as criminals, staying in line with the entirety of Trump’s anti-immigrant, fear-mongering campaign. The ad is the latest example of why Trump would be a divisive leader who would push policies antithetical to American values, from mass deportation to discriminating against Americans based on where we’re from or what religion we practice.”

People For the American Way is a progressive advocacy organization founded to fight right-wing extremism and defend constitutional values including free expression, religious liberty, equal justice under the law, and the right to meaningfully participate in our democracy.
