George Soros Empowers Immigrant Voters

It is no secret that businessman and philanthropist George Soros is not a supporter of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. In fact, George Soros feels so strongly about the potential damage that a Trump presidency could do to the future of the U.S., that he has announced that he will be contributing $5 million to a super PAC with the hope of mobilizing Latino and immigrant voters in opposing trump for the presidential election. The super PAC is called Immigrant Voters Win and is also supported by several wealthy philanthropists. In total, the campaign has raised $15 million in funding from donors to help encourage immigrant voters to get out the vote this November. The goal of the super PAC is to have at least 400,000 new Latino and immigrant voters by this coming general election. While this may seem like a lofty aspiration, the super PAC is already gaining momentum and has hit the ground running with enthusiasm from donors and supporters alike.

The motivation behind Soros’ participation in the super PAC is primarily the hateful rhetoric on nybooks.com that Trump has recently used to describe Mexican immigrants to the U.S. In particular, Trump referred to Mexicans as rapists and thieves, as part of the justification for his plan to build a massive wall between the U.S. and Mexico to purportedly keep out unwanted Mexican immigrants from entering the U.S. illegally. Soros says he is also concerned about the anti-Muslim rhetoric used by Trump in the last few months, which Soros said is extremely dangerous for the future of our country and relations abroad. In light of the insensitive language that frequently comes out of the Trump campaign, Soros sees an opportunity to mobilize Latino and immigrant voters against the real estate mogul and get them out to the polls in record numbers this November.

As an immigrant himself, Soros is highly sensitive to protecting the rights of immigrants around the world. Born in Budapest, Hungary in 1930, Soros knows exactly what it is like to have to escape from one’s country or government. He fled to England in 1947 because he had to escape the Nazi occupation of Hungary during World War II. After his escape, he was able to study economic and finance in London and then moved to the U.S. to begin what would become an extremely successful career. This goes to show why Soros is so committed to defending immigrant rights.
