En Español: El Partido Demócrata de Miami-Dade condenó gestos obscenos fuera de La Ermita de la Caridad

MIAMI-DADE, FL: After images of Trump supporters making obscene gestures outside of La Ermita de la Caridad circulated widely on social media, the Miami-Dade Democratic Party condemned their actions.

Several prominent Cuban-American figures were spotted in the crowd, including Eliecer Avila Cicilia, who María Elvira Salazar has called a “friend and supporter.”

Statement of Maria-Elena Lopez, First Vice Chair of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party:

“La Ermita de la Caridad is a sanctuary where thousands of Cuban exiles have come for comfort, to cry, to pray for freedom for Cuba. The actions of these Trump supporters are disgusting. If you have publicly objected to players kneeling during the national anthem but today are quiet while people standing in front of a church are giving the finger, please check your values.”

Miami-Dade Democratic Party condemns Mayor Giménez’s veto of civilian police review panel

MIAMI-DADE: After Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Giménez’s veto of a Miami-Dade County civilian review panel for police, Miami-Dade Democratic Party Chair released the following statement:

“People across this county have been calling for more police oversight for years, and those calls have been amplified in recent months following the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. Our democratically elected leaders did the right thing when they passed legislation to reestablish the Independent Civilian Panel, and Carlos Giménez was wrong to veto this panel — for the second time in two years — for political reasons. We need a civilian oversight panel with subpoena power, and once we replace our mayor with one who is responsive to the democratic will of the people, we will get one.”
