On the heels of the Vice Presidential debate, where Mike Pence demonized immigrants and referred to Donald Trump calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” and “criminals” as “that Mexican thing,” Hillary for America released a new video in Spanish featuring Salma Hayek urging Latinos to stand up to Trump by registering to vote.
In the video, the Mexican- American actress encourages the Latino community to be a voice for the millions of immigrants that Donald Trump demonizes daily. “We cannot allow them to insult and abuse us anymore. The Latino vote is extremely important,” says Hayek in Spanish. The video serves as another reminder of what’s at stake in this election-from sending a deportation force into American communities to rounding up and deporting 16 million people, to repealing DACA and DAPA and deporting DREAMers, Latinos can’t afford to have Trump in the White House.
