LATINOS CALL OUT TOM EMMER ON SB1070 DURING CINCO DE MAYO PARADE

 

(ST PAUL)-Minnesota's grassroots reaction to the state Republican Party's embrace of Arizona-style anti-immigrant legislation reached a new high yesterday as the public joined protesters in chanting opposition to GOP-endorsed gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer during St. Paul's annual Cinco de Mayo parade.

Activists flanked the Emmer unit as it marched through the Latino neighborhood. Emmer, who greeted supporters before they joined the parade, failed to march with them.

The crowd joined protesters who drew attention to Emmer 's statement that SB1070 was "a wonderful start" during a live show on Minnesota Public Radio.
