Latino Leaders to Highlight Adam Laxalt's Job-Killing, Anti-Immigrant Agenda following Trump Endorsement


Following Donald Trump's endorsement of Adam Laxalt, his main lackey in Nevada, Latina leaders from the Culinary Workers Union Local 226, Mi Familia Vota - Nevada, and Las Vegas elected officials like City Councilwoman Olivia Diaz, Assemblymember Edgar Flores and State Senator Fabian Donate along with other Latino leaders of Nevada will hold a press conference to denounce Laxalt, his embrace of Trump, and their job-killing, anti-worker, anti-immigrant, bad for Nevadans agenda. 

In the first week of his campaign for U.S. Senate, Laxalt has repeatedly attacked the historic jobs and infrastructure bill that would support thousands of jobs in Nevada. Throughout his career he has stood against pro-immigrant policies, splitting with Republican Governor Brian Sandoval as Nevada's Attorney General and backing a move that threatened to deport thousands of Nevadans from their homes.
