The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a proposed trade deal that will make buckets of money for corporate behemoths while wreaking havoc on the Latino community.
A handful of Latino legislators including Reps. Raúl Grijalva and Loretta Sanchez are standing up for us by fighting the TPP. But far too many members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus have failed to take a stand for our community.
Rep. Luis Gutiérrez, one of the most outspoken champions of immigration reform in the House, has remained passive in the face of a proposed trade deal that will surely make our immigrations system, and the plight of those trapped within in it, worse.
With important votes that will determine the fate of the TPP expected in the next few weeks, it is past time for our elected leaders in Washington, DC, to speak out.
Tell members of the CHC: Stand up for Latinos — fight the TPP.
