With results coming in from Indiana’s Republican primary, it’s increasingly clear that Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee for president. People For the American Way (PFAW) Director of Latinos Vote! and Manager of Political Campaigns Lizet Ocampo released the following statement:

“Donald Trump’s unbridled xenophobia should’ve disqualified him from the presidency long ago, yet now he’s the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party. His horrific comments against Latinos, immigrants, women, and so many others started on Day One of his presidential campaign and they haven’t let up.

“No candidate can go after our community and win our vote. Latino voters have the power to decide who wins elections this year from a local level to the next president, and we will vote against the hate of Donald Trump and the Republican Party.”
