The Jardin Santuario (Sanctuary Garden) on the corner of 11th and F streets in Arcata run by Centro Del Pueblo was again the target of vandalism this week, with some asshat spray painting “USA TRUMP” over the garden’s sign.
Centro Del Pueblo posted a message about the vandalism on its Facebook Page on Tuesday, saying “the family and friends of the Sanctuary Garden for immigrants stand against racist attacks in our communities.”
