Latino Celebs Pledge to Vote Against GOP Prez Candidates

Twenty-two Latino celebrities signed a letter pledging not to vote for Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush or any other major Republican candidate.

George Lopez, Aubrey Plaza, Zoe Saldana, Carlos Santana, America Ferrera, Benjamin Bratt and Ivonne Coll are among the celebrities asking fellow Latino voters not to vote for any of the Republican presidential candidates based on “anti-immigrant fear mongering.”

“To Donald Trump and the Republican candidates Spirit requires integration and total acceptance of everyone on this blessed planet. I invite you to utilize your power of wealth, to restore, amend and heal your relationship with all your sisters and brothers! It’s never too late to graduate from the university of fear! I believe in you! Your light can make a difference on our great nation-when the power of love replaces the love for power. Divinity is who you really are … LIGHT. Peace to you, your families and all your immigrant employees.” – Carlos Santana
