Mexican rock group Maná defended the dignity of Mexican immigrants in the face of the attacks by Donald Trump during the award ceremony of a platinum disc from Warner Music Latin, for the success in sales of their latest album, "Cama Quemada".

"There is a character named Donald Trump who has made some very violent statements with so much hatred against the Mexicans and Latin-Americans, calling them rapists, criminals, drug traffickers," expressed singer Fher Olvera, at a press conference prior to a concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

"It gives me great sadness because Mexicans have come to help build this country. It is sad as well that someone has as much hate in his heart and a microphone to say these things," expressed Fher about the statements Trump made last Tuesday while announcing his intentions to look for the presidential candidacy of the Republican Party.

Prior to the press conference, the national director of Warner Music Group, José Godur, delivered a platinum disc to each member of the band.

The joy of receiving the platinum disc was mixed with inflammatory statements by the musicians, like drummer Alex González, who expressed his feelings in Spanish and English.

"We're really angry with Trump, because many Latinos are construction workers who helped him to build his buildings and he forgets that the people who work hard are the ones that helped build all of the United States," expressed González.
