Grijalva to lead counter protest when Trump visits Phoenix on Tuesday – b

U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva, D-Arizona, announced in a six-minute YouTube video that he will be leading a counter protest outside the Phoenix Convention Center on Tuesday, Aug. 22, while President Donald Trump talks to supporters inside. 

The Tucson Democrat called the President “unhinged” following the President’s comments about the violence in Charlottesville.

“This president is indeed unhinged and his comments yesterday emboldened, (and) gave justification to people who fundamentally go against the values of this nation,” said Grijalva in the video. “People driven by hate. People driven by racism. And people driven to make other people victims throughout this whole process.”

In labeling Trump as a supporter of racists, Grijalva repeats a proverb in both Spanish and English: “Tell me who you are with and I’ll tell you who are,” Grijalva said.

Grijalva said he is concerned Trump will pardon former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio during his visit to Phoenix. Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt for ignoring a court order to stop detained suspected illegal immigrants. He faces up to six months in prison.

  1. Grijalva, shut up with your racial emboldening comments. Stop calling the illegals “immigrants.”

    What is your status by the way? Are you one of those anchor babies yourself?

    I did notice you mentioned nationals. Put American in front and you’ve got it correct.

    We are not going to be divided no matter how much you try. See ya!

  2. Grijalva is one of the reasons the Tucson economy is in the toilet. He is more concerned about illegals than citizens.
