PRESENTE.ORG's STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP PARDONING WHITE SUPREMACIST SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO

Aug. 28, 2017

Statement from Matt Nelson, Executive Director, Presente.org:

"White Supremacy has no place in government. By pardoning his bigoted, violent, criminally racist crony, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, President Trump has further earned his label as White Supremacist-in-Chief. Arpaio and Trump’s support of Nazi rule is in sharp contrast with our core values of dignity, justice, and human rights. Millions within the Latinx diaspora have been under assault by the hatred and violence that these two men embody. Trump's pardon of Arpaio should be a wake-up call to anyone who still supports the administration, and we urge leaders in business, media, and government to disavow this act and the hateful, white supremacist patterns and practices of the Trump administration.”
