LULAC National Board Approves Resolution For U.S. Senate To Hold Trump Accountable In Attack On Capitol
Nation’s Leading Latino Civil Rights Organization Demands Convening Senate Trial Immediately to Determine Culpability of the President
Washington, DC - The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) today announced that the LULAC National Board has formally voted to support U.S. House Resolution 24 to Impeach the President Donald J. Trump and for the Senate to move forward with a trial on the most serious charge, Incitement to Insurrection against the federal government.
“The Senate must take decisive action so that the healing process for America can begin by holding Mr. Trump accountable for the heinous acts of the mob that he met with and encouraged on January 6, 2021,” says Domingo Garcia, LULAC National President. “This day will live in history as infamous as the attack on our country on September 11, 2001, known as 9/11,” added Garcia.
The LULAC resolution was initiated by Washington, DC Councils, Council #8057 of Albuquerque, New Mexico, the New Mexico LULAC State Board and brought before the LULAC National Board for formal consideration and approval by LULAC National Treasurer, Pablo Martinez.
“The US Government is teetering over the acts of the President after he invited and addressed a mob of Insurrectionists then encouraged them to ‘fight like hell’ resulting in the storming of the US Capitol,” says Martinez. “The overwhelming video and audio evidence reveals the destructive and deadly intentions of the mob. Also, it confirms the level of pre-planning necessary to carry out an organized assault on American democracy and our Republic The House has lived up to its constitutional duty and now members of the Senate must do theirs” Martinez concluded.
