Domingo Garcia, LULAC national president discusses meatpackers dying from COVID-19 around the country because of corporate and governmental negligence.
Domingo Garcia, LULAC president, speak out
The work of LULAC is never done. Domingo made a comment that should stick in the minds of all.
“When an American family goes tonight and have dinner and pray before the meal to thank Jesus for this,” the LULAC president said. “It is really Jesus (Spanish intonation) . There is a “Jesus” somewhere in a meat packing plant.”
He points out they do the hardest work. While we have heard about a few of these workers dying from COVID–19, Domingo said that there are dozens who have already died.
Domingo was previously a DA in Harris County Texas. He revealed a story about dropping charges on a woman and quitting because of his then-boss wan unfeeling and unforgiving, a story you must listen to in the video clip.
Mr. Garcia touched on a subject recently covered where the Republicans are attempting to offer corporation COVID-19 liability protection. In other words, they want to give companies a license to be negligent. Ironically, where is the guaranteed healthcare for the employees? Where is the sick leave?
COVID-19 has made much clear. It is good that there are warriors like Domingo Garcia on the front lines for worker who sometimes believe they have no hope.
Who is Domingo Garcia
Mr. Garcia’s life is that of self-made success and public service spanning decades of hard work and sacrifice, a son born of Mexican immigrants who earned his way from shoeshine boy to the Statehouse of Texas as an elected lawmaker. From newspaper boy, he rose to become one of Texas’ most visible newsmakers, as the youngest Mayor Pro-Tem of Dallas, one of America’s top 10 cities. From a busboy who dreamed of his own future, he went on to protect America’s Dreamers as the author of Texas’ laws, the first in the nation to protect immigrant students, after receiving his B.A. in Political Science from the University of North Texas in 1980 and his Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas in 1983. From a young man who grew up listening to his parents’ stories about life in Mexico, he went on to win a scholarship to study at the El Colegio de Mexico in Mexico City where he earned a Master’s degree in International Relations. Indeed, the depth and breadth of his life have enabled Domingo to also serve as an editorial columnist and broadcast commentator as well as a highly-successful trial lawyer for thirty years.LULAC
