Hispanic intellectuals condemn Trump's "hateful discourse" (My Life Style NY)

A group of prominent intellectuals from the Spanish-speaking world, including Nobel laureate Mario Vargas Llosa and Mexico's Elena Poniatowska, in a public letter rejected the "discourse of hate" being engaged in by Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump and asked U.S. voters not to tolerate "his absurd stances." 67 Latino intellectuals, artists, scientists, writers and filmmakers from the United States, Latin America and Spain signed a joint statement denouncing the anti-immigrant comments made by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The Hispanic group, many of which are immigrants in the United States, stated that "Trump's hate speech appeals to xenophobia, sexism and political intolerance; it recalls historical campaigns against other ethnic groups that led to millions of deaths."

Among the signers of the statement: Arturo Álvarez-Buylla, Roger Bartra, Jorge Castañeda, Jennifer Clement, Junot Díaz, Jorge Edwards, Julio Frenk, Francisco Goldman, Diego Luna, Antonio Muñoz Molina, Silvia Pedraza, and Mario Vargas Llosa. The full statement was released by Enrique Krauze and Carmelo Mesa-Lago.
