LULAC: Presidential Debate Was A Debacle That Hurts America

Nation’s Oldest and Largest Latino Civil Rights Organization Says Voters Were Defrauded by Chaotic, Disgraceful Verbal Clash

Washington, DC - The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) issued the following statement about Tuesday night’s debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden:

Domingo Garcia - LULAC National President
“Tonight’s debate failed to address the concerns of average Latino and American families. We need real plans for real problems. President Trump acted like he was in a verbal lucha libre instead of a presidential debate.”

Sindy Benavides - LULAC National Chief Executive Officer
“As we head into the November 3rd elections, it is unsettling that a standing president is falsely alleging voter fraud with mail in ballots. All of this is a calculated attempt to dissuade participation in our electoral process. Our hope is that all who are eligible to register to vote, do so and turn out to vote. EVERY VOTE MATTERS.”
