Tell Ed Gillespie to take his racist comments back

Ed Gillespie, who is running for governor of Virginia, has a deeply offensive campaign ad that claims sanctuary cities promote gang violence, and implies that immigrants are dangerous criminals.

Such racist statements have no place in the Virginia governor’s race, and anyone with that viewpoint shouldn’t be governor of a state where one in nine residents are immigrants. Tell Gillespie to take his offensive comments back!

I stand with Virginia immigrants and urge Ed Gillespie to take back his offensive comments comparing immigrants to dangerous criminals. Immigrants are part of our communities, and such language has no place in the Virginia governor’s race.
