I’m voting for Phil Weiser for Attorney General because a friend told me that Hispanics are criminals. I’m voting for Phil because another said we’re expendable, illegal. And while others have felt the Trumpward shift in bigger, even life-altering ways, these have stung me personally.

Phil gets that the great danger today is about who this age, this President are telling us we should be: people who hate or distrust entire categories of our neighbors.

Phil was quick to call out the “Muslim ban” and family separation, and he has the brains and thoughtfulness to beat in court the next policy designed to make us a people we are not. After being told that my family and I are criminals, I’m now convinced that most important work is something only Phil will do: reminding us that we are better than this. We are better.
