History, Trauma And The Trump Protest

Mary 27, 2016 – New Mexico in Focus recently spoke with voters outside rallies for presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. We hear some of the reasons why those individuals are supporting each candidate.

On Tuesday, protesters also gathered near the Trump rally to condemn some of the candidate’s statements on women, minorities, and immigrants.

Host Gene Grant sits down with journalist Jeff Proctor to talk about APD’s response to the protest. He’s joined by Emma Sandoval from the Southwest Organizing Project, which provided peacekeeping volunteers at the protest, and Moises Gonzales, a UNM professor who was at the event and is reflecting on the reactions of young people.
