Statement: Ahead of Trump Visit to Phoenix, Diego Rodriguez, candidate for Maricopa County Attorney, Denounces his Dangerous and Divisive Policies Against Latino Community


PHOENIX, AZ – AUGUST 31, 2016 – Today, the Rodriguez 2016 campaign released the following statement by Candidate for Maricopa County Attorney, Diego Rodriguez:

"Donald Trump’s fear based and divisive rhetoric towards the Latino community is nothing new to those of us who have lived with Sheriff Arpaio and our current Maricopa County Attorney, Bill Montgomery. 

Like Montgomery and Arpaio, Trump hopes to use his elected office as a political tool against people of color. As a result of the policies of the Maricopa County Attorney and Sheriff’s Office, the trust between the Latino community, 30% of our county’s population, and law enforcement, has been substantially compromised.

This poor relationship between these politicians, the law enforcement, and our community in Arizona puts us all in danger. For the good of everyone who lives in our county, we must move Maricopa County beyond the fearful and divisive policies of politicians like Donald Trump, Joe Arpaio and Bill Montgomery who have kept our community divided for too long."
