    The Message

    US Attorney General Loretta Lynch, State Attorneys General in NY, CA, NV, IL, IA, and other states: Donald Trump and his presidential campaign have morphed into something very violent and dangerous, particularly for Latinos, immigrants, and communities of color. Trump represents a clear and present danger for our communities that must be confronted immediately.

    We urge you to conduct a full criminal investigation of Trump's actions and the actions of his campaign and representatives, and if the investigation shows he committed these crimes noted below, that he be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Earlier this month (Aug. 2015), Trump praised the two men who brutally beat up a homeless Latino man, calling them "passionate". Recently, Trump had a prominent Latino journalist forcefully removed from a press conference for asking questions Trump didn't like. And, During the first televised Republican presidential debate, Trump admitted, before a national television audience, that he has bribed public officials from both major political parties.

    There have been no repercussions or criminal investigations, and this is unacceptable. Trump's hateful and possibly criminal actions are destructive to American democracy and the rule of law, and have led to acts of violence against Latinos and Black Americans. Billionaires and presidential candidates cannot operate above the law. You have the responsibility and authority to hold Trump accountable. #ArrestTrump 

    While much has happened during the presidential campaign over the last few weeks, few have noticed what Trump has put on full display for all Americans to see. And it's not that he's just a bully, a xenophobe, a misogynist, and a racist. It's that he has incited violence in our community and admitted to bribing public officials. 

    Trump's presidential campaign is no longer a joke. It is no longer just a sad sign of the times or an irresistible train wreck. Trump and his campaign have morphed into something very dangerous, particularly for Latinos, immigrants, and communities of color. He represents a clear and present danger for our communities that must be confronted urgently. Join us in calling on US AG Lynch and State Attorneys General to conduct a full criminal investigation of his actions and the actions of his campaign and representatives, and if the investigation shows he committed these crimes, that he be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. If left unchecked, Trump's hate will continue to create a hostile environment for all immigrants, Muslims, Latinos, and Black Americans—an environment which can result in tragedy. #BastaTrump
