Does Congressman Walden Stand by Don Young's Racial Slurs?Salem-News.com
Congressman Don Young (R-AK) talked about hiring 50 to 60 “wetbacks” on his family’s ranch.
(WASHINGTON DC DCCC Press) - Congressman Greg Walden’s Congressional leader, Don Young, used the racial slur “wetbacks” in an interview last night. Will Congressman Walden condemn his friend’s horribly offensive remark?
Congressman Don Young is the second most senior Republican Member of Congress. In an interview this week, Congressman Don Young (R-AK) talked about hiring 50 to 60 “wetbacks” on his family’s ranch.
“Congressman Walden can’t remain silent on his colleague Don Young’s use of a racial slur to describe Latino families,” said Emily Bittner of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Hispanic Americans and all of the hardworking people of Oregon deserve to know if Congressman Walden will stand by and let his pal denigrate our neighbors, or if he will do the right thing – and condemn the use of racial slurs by his political party leader. Congressman Don Young is the second-most senior Republican in Congress, and Congressman Walden should stand up for Latino families in Oregon.”
