Their Friends

With friends like these, it’s clear where Republican candidates’ interests lie.

The Republican Party, from leadership on down, has been radicalized and now caters exclusively to an extreme and vocal voting base, led by former president Trump.

Trump has made it clear that his vision for our country is one in which there are mass deportations of migrants who’ve built lives here. Detention camps housing millions of asylum seekers simply seeking safety.

And Republican elites have been increasingly willing to associate with Trump’s racism and xenophobia. While on the campaign trail, they have preferred divisive political stunts and inflammatory language over real solutions.

Several other elected Republicans hang out with white nationalists, echoing domestic terrorists, and promoting racist lies. These Republican members of congress’s actions threaten the safety and prosperity of our communities.

Stefanik ascended to power by cynically embracing Trump’s lies about the …

Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14)

Representing Georgia’s 14th congressional District since 2021, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has spewed racist conspiracy theories in floor speeches, campaign ads, and from her official social media accounts. Greene’s notoriety isn’t from being an effective policymaker or legislator but one of the most vocal nativists of the GOP House caucus. She has stuck with Donald …

Donald Trump

Donald Trump, the 2024 Republican presidential nominee, is at the forefront of the GOP’s xenophobic agenda. In June 2015, Trump launched his first campaign for president by attacking Latinos and immigrants, stating that Mexico was “sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us.
