‘English only' fight erupts at a Las Vegas caucus site when Dolores Huerta offers to translate

FOX NEWS - Veteran civil rights leader Dolores Huerta, an avid supporter of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, is accusing Bernie Sanders campaign staffers of preventing her from providing Spanish-language translation to voters who needed it at a Las Vegas caucus location during Saturday’s Democratic primary.

Huerta, who co-founded the National Farmworkers Association with late Cesar Chavez in the 1960s, told Univision reporter Fernando Peinado: “I don’t feel that Sanders’ people respect our community. They stopped the people from having translation [services] in something as important as these caucuses that are taking place. They are showing that they don’t respect us.”

According to several reports, Huerta offered to help serve as an interpreter at the Harrah’s Las Vegas Hotel and Casino caucus site because many caucus-goers were workers who spoke only Spanish.

However, when she got on stage, where the voting was taking place, many in the crowd started yelling “No, no, no!” She told Huffington Post that they were Sanders supporters and were also shouting “English only.”
