Latino Activists In Florida Fired Up

The reality is that there are thousands upon thousands of eligible voters that are going to register to vote in this election in record numbers, and the irony is that that record registration is actually coming from the direct threat and attack from candidates who continue to speak negatively and deplorably of the immigrants in this country,” said Jose Luis Marantes, an activist with the Florida Immigrant Coalition, speaking at a rally in Ybor City on Wednesday. “They think that by saying those words, by threatening us with walls, by threatening us with deportation, that they will make us hide, and cower, and go home. The reality is they’re emboldening us, angering us, and preparing us to get ready to vote and to show in 2016. here
