(Tea Party PAC) – The media is trying very hard to convince you that there’s no difference between a legal and an illegal immigrant, and former Univision anchor María Elena Salinas, who was once called the “voice of Hispanic America” is certainly among them.
On Tuesday, Salinas joined CNN host Don Lemon to lament that many Latinos “are buying some of these arguments against undocumented immigrants” that Trump has been making.
“And it’s very sad to see that our own people, who are immigrants themselves, are attacking these immigrants that are trying to come in, knowing themselves how difficult the situation is in a lot of these Latin American countries,” she continued. “And, you know, they’re buying it, and some people, just like some other Trump supporters, are saying, well, you know, so what if he tells lies, as long as we have lower unemployment among the Latino community.”
In Trump’s Oval Office address Tuesday, the President specifically addressed how illegal immigration hurts minorities like African-Americans and Hispanic Americans.
“It strains public resources and drives down jobs and wages,” Trump said of illegal immigration. “Among those hardest hit are African-Americans and Hispanic Americans.”
During his 2016 campaign, Trump also explicitly noted how the media often ignores Latino families who are victimized by illegal immigrant crimes.
Consequently, Trump did very well among Hispanic voters, much to the chagrin of the identity-politic left.
A December Associated Press report noted that “the GOP’s position among Hispanics has not weakened during the Trump administration, despite the president’s rhetoric against immigrants and the party’s shift to the right on immigration.”
“Though Latino voters are a key part of the Democratic coalition, there is a larger bloc of reliable Republican Latinos than many think,” the Associated Press explained.
According to AP’s VoteCast data from the 2018 midterms, “32 percent of Latinos voted for Republicans” while other midterm election surveys “also found roughly one-third of Latinos supporting the GOP.”
The Associated Press adds that “the stability of Republicans’ share of the Latino vote frustrates Democrats, who say actions like Trump’s family separation policy and his demonization of an immigrant caravan should drive Latinos out of the GOP.”
Legal immigrants know the difference between the front door and the back door very well, and they are the ones being pushed aside, ignored, and victimized by the Democrats who give preference to criminals!
