Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump’s Anti-Immigrant Slurs

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s statement that Mexican immigrants are “rapists” who are “bringing drugs [and] crime” is ignorant, hateful and idiotic.

Unfortunately he’s not alone in the Republican Party. Other Republican presidential candidates have been fomenting anti-immigrant fear and standing in the way of fixing our broken immigration system for years.

The Republican presidential candidates should not only condemn these statements, but also stand up for comprehensive immigration reform that delivers on America’s promise of fairness to immigrants.
