Latino Candidates Get Muslim Endorsement in Virginia

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , — Imam Mahdi Bray @ 7:04 pm

Three Northern Virginia Latino candidates running in the November 6 general election have received an endorsement from the Virginia Muslim Political Action Committee (VMPAC).The candidates are: Walter Tejada (D), running for the Arlington Board of Supervisors; Marty Martinez (D), running for State Delegate in Western Loudon County; and, Carols Del Toro (D), running for State Delegate in Stafford County.

When asked about VMPAC’s announcement, MAS Freedom Executive Director, Mahdi Bray, responded, “The endorsement reflects a convergence of views on immigration reform issues in both the Latino and Muslim communities, however, the most important factor is that the Latino community has put forth viable candidates to represent Virginians.”

“Additionally, I think both communities have been drawn together by the xenophobic campaign rhetoric of smear and fear by unscrupulous Virginia politicians that have targeted both the Latino and Muslim communities,” Bray concluded.

Muslim and Latino activists have agreed to work together toward establishing Virginia as a model of diversity, with a fair and equitable policy for its immigrant population that will benefit all Virginians.

  2. The age-old pesky U.S.-Mexico border problem has taxed the resources of both countries, led to long lists of injustices, and appears to be heading only for worse troubles in the future. Guess what? The border problem can never be solved. Why? Because the border IS the problem! It’s time for a paradigm change.

    Never fear, a satisfying, comprehensive solution is within reach: the Megamerge Dissolution Solution. Simply dissolve the border along with the failed Mexican government, and megamerge the two countries under U.S. law, with mass free 2-way migration eventually equalizing the development and opportunities permanently, with justice and without racism, and without threatening U.S. sovereignty or basic principles.
