President Trump has incited open racism, xenophobia, and hostility to Latinos and immigrants. From his attacks on Judge Curiel during his campaign to his claims that 3-5 million noncitizens voted to his pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, to his recent vow to end DACA, there has never been any question that this is an era where Latinos face acute threats in many different arenas. The attacks seem to keep coming, and the Trump administration appears undeterred by Latinos’ growing percentage of the country’s population.
To mark the beginning of National Hispanic Heritage month, join our panel of experts who ask why this administration has been able to make and continue attacks on Latinos, and what, if anything can be done to push back effectively at this time of struggle.
Our guests, including Angelo Falcón, President, National Institute for Latino Policy (NILP), Roberto Frugone, Northeast Director for NALEO Educational Fund, Robert T. Maldonado, immediate past President of the Hispanic National Bar Association, Antonio Reynoso, City Council Member representing New York's 34th District, and Myrna Pérez, Director, Voting Rights and Elections Project for the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, will lead this urgent discussion to examine and inspire leaders new and old in the Latino community.
