GREENLATINOS CALLS ON SCOTT PRUITT TO RESIGN

Washington D.C. -- GreenLatinos President and CEO made the following statement on EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt's continuous unethical and reckless actions.

"Scott Pruitt's latest dirty dealing demands an immediate and thorough investigation. Instead of defending the health of vulnerable communities including communities of color, Pruitt is cozying up to polluters and donors – and even staying in their condos. The American people deserve better:  it’s time for Pruitt to go.”

 

GREENLATINOS EXIGE LA RENUNCIA DE SCOTT PRUITT

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- El presidente y CEO de GreenLatinos, Mark Magaña, realizó las siguientes declaraciones sobre las acciones antiéticas e imprudentes del administrador de la Agencia de Protección Ambiental (EPA, por sus siglas en inglés), Scott Pruitt:

“Las corruptas y antiéticas transacciones de Scott Pruitt deben ser investigadas inmediata y exhaustivamente. En lugar de defender la salud de las comunidades vulnerables, incluidas las comunidades de color, Pruitt se ha codeado con los contaminadores y donantes, hospedándose en sus costosos condominios residenciales. Pruitt cree que está por encima del presidente y que es intocable, pero sus acciones están perjudicando a nuestras comunidades y es hora de que renuncie a su puesto”.
