At a campaign rally Sunday in Las Vegas, Bernie Sanders criticized Donald Trump’s mischaracterization of undocumented immigrants as rapists and drug dealers.
“That is old-fashioned racism,” Sanders told the crowd. “It is not an American value to talk about rounding up millions of people and simply say that we are going to throw them out of the country. That is xenophobia.”
Sanders went on to promise “the beginning of the dismantling of an excessively wasteful $18 billion deportation regime.”
According to the Las Vegas Sun, Sanders was played on by “a dozen mariachi musicians” before speaking to the crowd of more than 2,800 at the Cheyenne Sports Complex in North Las Vegas, where more than a third of the population is Hispanic.
