Trump: Bad hombre for the whole world
February 13, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
Mexicans young and old took to the streets in 20 cities on Sunday, February 12, to express their anger and disgust with Donald Trump, organized by some 70 organizations, including business and community organizations, universities, Amnesty International, and more. An estimated 20,000 marched in Mexico City. A professor quoted by CNN said, “We are sending a message to Donald Trump: No wall. No immigrant raids. No aggression to Mexico.” People also condemned Trump’s rhetoric against Muslims and women.
Trump’s attack on undocumented immigrants was principal for most. The images of the arrest and deportation of Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos in Phoenix has had a powerful, galvanizing impact on people, seen as concentrating the treatment that undocumented immigrants are facing under Trump. “I feel disgusted. Quite frankly, you have my community members being yanked from their homes, the streets and their jobs” said a 25-year-old DREAMer who self-deported back to Mexico. Many of those in the streets were condemning Mexico’s President Peña Nieto, carrying signs saying “Fuera Peña,” or “Peña Out.” A woman in Mexico City carried a sign saying: “Trump: Bad hombre for the whole world.”
