After reading a bit about this I'm a bit conflicted as to how it's Bernie's fault or why it's an issue. Every other area was met with strong opposition so they literally had nowhere else to dump the waste except in a poor area where the residents spoke Spanish and couldn't resist. If people actually cared they would've stood up for their neighbours, but you have to put the waste somewhere. It's not even that big of a deal, you can dump the waste near my house if you want. It just goes in a vault deep underground. Plus it wasn't even high grade waste like plutonium, it's just low-level items like gloves and scrap metal.
