Los Angeles, CA – Longtime Chicano and immigrant rights leader Carlos Montes condemned President Trump’s January 8 Oval Office speech, stating, “We are opposed to Trump’s attacks on refugees at the border - and his wall. We will continue to oppose his measures, and build the movement to dump Trump.”

Trump’s push to further militarize the U.S. border has resulted in a prolonged partial government shutdown.

The Los Angeles community organization, Centro CSO, has called for a January 9 bannering in the Boyle Heights neighborhood, at the corner of 4th and Soto, from 4 to 6 p.m.
