.@realdonaldtrump grotesquely exploiting the real pain of families to falsely portray the vast majority of undocumented immigrants as criminals was as ugly, shameful, and bigoted as ever. More on #SOTU here: pic.twitter.com/XQCCvXluPM

This morning we spoke with leaders of some of our UnidosUS Affiliates to get their reaction to the president’s 2018 State of the Union address.
Our Affiliates—nearly 300 strong—are the heart of UnidosUS. They work daily to assist, educate, and empower communities nationwide. So they know the destructive impact of the negative rhetoric and policies pursued by this administration first-hand.
These advocates were watching and listening closely last night to what the president said. But they know the reality of this administration is in their daily actions. And it is those actions which make Trump’s words last night “ring hollow.”
The below UnidosUS Affiliates are located in California, Tennessee, Texas, and the Washington, DC area. Scroll below to see what they have to say.
And make sure to also click on their website link to find out more about their work to provide opportunities for Hispanic Americans.
