A group of elected officials in Oregon recently posted a video denouncing the Trump administration’s plan to weaken protections for homeless transgender people and undocumented immigrants who receive federal subsidized housing.
Metro Councilor Juan Carlos González was just one of the politicians in the video, a joint effort by Metro, Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington counties, and Gov. Kate Brown. But he said some people used that as a chance to attack him on social media because he’s Latino.
González, the son of Mexican immigrants, was born and raised in Cornelius in Washington County. Still, he’s had people question his immigration status and tell him to go home. Check out the full story here.
