Garcia, D-Ill., who was a leading national surrogate for Bernie Sanders in 2016 endorsed the Vermont senator on Thursday and will head to Nevada to campaign for him in a state where Latino voters are a key to victory.
“I stand with Bernie Sanders because we need a president who is consistent, who has the courage to pursue real change, and who will always choose the people over political gain or expediency,” Garcia said in a statement.
“For me and for a majority of communities across our country, defeating Donald Trump and reversing his inhumane immigration policies is not only urgent, it is personal. Bernie Sanders is the only person who can unite a coalition capable of defeating Donald Trump and can ensure that our country never again rips children from the arms of their families,” Garcia said.
