Rep. Gutierrez to Shun Trump Inauguration Over his 'Bigotry'

Friday, 02 December 2016 11:08 AM EST

Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois says he's planning to boycott Donald Trump's inauguration because of the president-elect’s "bigotry and prejudice."

"I can’t go to this inauguration because he continues to spew hatred, bigotry and prejudice even after he said he was going to bring us all together, he was going to unify, but he's not," Gutierrez told CNN on Friday.

Gutierrez said he and his wife, Soraida, will instead participate in protests in D.C. at the same time against the billionaire real-estate tycoon on Jan. 20.

"He started his campaign by saying that Mexicans were murderers, rapists, by criminalizing the community. And when he said Mexicans, I mean in the parlance of American politics, he meant Latinos," Gutierrez said.

"And criminalized us all, he criminalized my 13-year-old grandson and every other young Latino male in this country."
