In fact, CASA is is an immigrant advocacy group whose mission is to “create a more just society by building power and improving the quality of life in low-income immigrant communities…living free from discrimination and fear, working together with mutual respect to achieve full human rights for all.” Horrible, eh?
In stark contrast, Donald Trump’s Virginia Chair, Prince William County Board Chair Corey Stewart, has been on a mission since 2007 to vilify, demonize and harass the human beings he disgustingly refers to as “illegals” (see 9500 Liberty for full documentation of Stewart’s actions at that time). Just like the guy Stewart’s now trying to elect to the most powerful position on earth…ugh.
UPDATE 8:37 am Friday: Prince William County Democratic Committee Chair Harry Wiggins says: “Stewart is an unprincipled Trump whore. His constituency is those who fill the sewer with hate. He has repeatedly and unsuccessfully tried to drive minorities including the Latino community and Muslim community out of majority minority’s Prince William County. Stewart is the epitome of the Republican Party standing for hate and evil.”
UPDATE 3:34 pm: Luis Aguilar of CASA responds as well.
UNFIT FOR DIVERSE PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY; UNFIT FOR DIVERSE VIRGINIA
Corey Stewart once again demonstrates that he lacks the integrity worthy of a County Board Chair. His Facebook attack against CASA exemplifies his disdain for our immigrant community and mirrors a presidential candidate who tweets. These are not the values of Virginia and not the values of the United States. In this the month of immigrant heritage, we need politicians who will unite not divide.
UPDATE 3:22 pm: See the following statement by DLOV (Democratic Latino Organization of Virginia) founder Leni Gonzalez:
