In the heart of Rubén Dario Park near Sweetwater, more than a hundred Hispanic voters gathered Saturday morning to show their support for Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.
The park, named after the award-winning Nicaraguan poet, served as the starting point for the caravan
“Nicaraguans with Biden”
Both campaigns are organizing caravans to safely energize their supporters during the pandemic.
This Saturday, several cars were decorated with Nicaraguan flags, and ‘Biden-Harris’ posters. Portraits of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a feminist and progressive icon of the US Supreme Court, who died on September 18, were also in sight in several vehicles.
In addition, several people placed posters on their windshields denouncing communism.
At the head of the caravan was republican analyst and strata ana Navarro, who is frequently critical of Donald Trump on his Twitter account and cnn screen. Navarro moved with her family from Nicaragua to Miami as a child.
“I think there are a lot of people in South Florida who are intimidated by the network disinformation campaign. The narrative that Joe Biden is a communist is a lie,” Navarro said. “What I hope to do today with this group is to show that there is support for Biden among South Florida Hispanics and that we are not afraid to express that support.”
Another Nicaraguan closed the caravan: Porfirio Mercado, a 53-year-old Hialeah resident.
“We emigrated in 1983 because of the revolution that occurred in 1979. My father was in jail for 10 years, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to vote for Trump,” he said. “Trump brings back a lot of memories because it seems to me that he’s practically becoming a dictator. According to him he says it as a joke, but he would like to be there in power like many dictators forever.”
“It’s not a matter of socialism, it’s not a left-wing or right-wing issue,” he added. “It’s more spacious. It’s democracy.”
