Mi Familia Vota Statement on Final Presidential Debate

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The following is a statement from Ben Monterroso, executive director of Mi Familia Vota: 

Tonight, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump had one final opportunity to present their vision for the future of this country. 

“In an election campaign rife with divisive and toxic rhetoric but lacking in substantive solutions for the issues our communities face, Latino voters were anxious to hear real policy discussions and not scandal. 

“What we heard discussed offered a clear portrait of what voters can expect from a Clinton or Trump administration. Trump once again promised to build a wall and rip apart millions of families and Clinton offered a different approach to solve our nation’s unjust immigration system. Trump will nominate Supreme Court justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade and Clinton supports a women’s right to choose. 

It is now in our hands to promote unity and not division through our vote. We have a choice to make and the future of our children and families depends on it. The election is not over until every eligible voter casts his or her vote.”
