Nevada Latinos: Cruz & Rubio are Same as Trump

Rep. Dina Titus, NV Latino Voters & Activists Join National Progressive Leaders for Roundtable to Compare Senators' Voting Records with Trump’s Rhetoric on Economy, Immigration, Climate

LAS VEGAS – Ahead of the CNN Republican Presidential Primary Debate, local voters and activists will join national progressive leaders for a roundtable discussion to highlight how Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz’s voting records reflect the Republican Party’s Trump-rhetoric – and what it means for Nevada’s growing Latino and immigrant community. While Trump continues to grab headlines with his hateful anti-Latino, anti-immigrant language, the positions and records of the two Latino presidential candidates in the race are equally dangerous for Nevada communities. 

Date/Time: Monday, December 14th at 12:00pm PT/ 3:00pm ET

Location: East Las Vegas Community Center, Multi-Purpose Room, (250 N. Eastern Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89101)

Congresswoman Dina Titus (D-NV) will provide opening remarks for the event.

The following leaders will join the roundtable alongside Nevada Latino voters: 

  •        Cristobal Alex [Moderator], President, Latino Victory Project
  •        Yvanna Cancela, Political Director, Culinary Workers Union Local 226
