In Citizenship Drives, Latinos Sign Up to Vote Against Trump
Leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump announced his campaign by accusing Mexico of sending over "killers" and "rapists" and promising to build a Great Wall on the nation's southern border.
Months later, the thought of a Presidente Trump is motivating many Latinos to go through the naturalization process to become U.S. citizens — and vote against Trump.
A number of Latino, labor and immigration groups — including SEIU, Mi Familia Vota, NPNA, iAmerica, UFCW, Unite Here! and Latino Victory Foundation — have banded together under the "Stand Up to Hate" campaign, and this weekend many of them were sponsoring naturalization drives in states where organizers have seen a marked interest in the process.
