Say No to Hate: Jerry Gonzalez

The biggest problem facing Americans today is the stark difference between where we have made progress in this country under the Obama Administration and where the Trump Administration is going. With regards to the Trump Administration right now on immigration and voting rights, we believe they are moving in a direction against the values of most Americans.

Jerry Gonzalez: The biggest problem facing Americans today is the stark difference between where we have made progress in this country under the Obama Administration and where the Trump Administration is going. With regards to the Trump Administration right now on immigration and voting rights, we believe it is moving in a direction against the values of most Americans. In fact, polling indicates strong support for ending the zero-tolerance policy at the border of separating children from their parents and also indicates strong bipartisan support for DACA students to have a path to citizenship with the passage of a DREAM Act. Our nation is at a serious crossroads, and our 2018 election will either shift direction or continue (the Trump administration's) path forward.
