Julian Castro claims Bernie Sanders voted with Republicans to protect a hate group


Another Clinton smear:

Castro, a surrogate for the Clinton campaign, said: “Bernie Sanders voted with Republicans to protect the Minutemen, a hate group that used military tactics against our community.”

Sanders, then an Independent in the House, voted with 75 Democrats to restrict the U.S. from alerting Mexico to Minutemen operations on the border. However, we didn’t see any evidence that this since-weakened extremist group was designated a “hate group.”

On balance, we rate this claim as Half True.

One thought on “Julian Castro claims Bernie Sanders voted with Republicans to protect a hate group”

  1. Sad to see Castro siding with the wrong candidate this year. I really had high political hopes for this young Democrat. He has weakened his stance with me considerably by his pro-Hillary and anti-Bernie speak. The only thing I have in common with the GOP mascot (elephant) is that my memory is also long.
