We are in solidarity with all of our brothers and sisters that will be here today against the politics of hate. We refuse to stand idly by while Trump destroys everything America stands for. We need to raise our voices against Trump's racism, assault on civil rights, horrific border wall, and a tax on public plans, our environment, and working families.
Sadly, here in Arizona, we are not strangers to immigrant scapegoating and direct assault on Mexican families and Latino families and immigrants. Let's remember that before Trump, there was Sheriff Joe Arpaio that the law and the courts found guilty of harassing, scapegoating, and actual racism against people of color.
