Weekly Poll
Do you agree with U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal's (D-Santa Barbara) decision to attend Trump's inauguration?

Yes. He should definitely go and show respect for the new president.
I agree that he should attend to show Trump that Latinos have a strong voice in our government.
No. He should stand in solidarity with U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-Georgia) and other congressional members who aren't attending.
I don't care what he does on inauguration day, as long as he does a good job as a congressman.
