Despite what the fake news media say, there are Latinos who support a border wall.
Erin Burnett of OutFront and CNN’s Miguel Marquez were compelled to report that 34 percent of Latinos supported Trump’s wall according to a CNN poll.
Both of the reporters looked confused as they highlighted this uncomfortable truth. Marquez highlighted how a majority of Latinos disapprove of Trump’s presidency, however, there are many living along the U.S.-Mexico border who back Trump and believe that there is a “national emergency” at the border. The Latino Trump supporters went as far as to say that they would like the wall to be “doubled” or “tripled”.
A McAllen, Texas resident, Rolando Rodriguez, said he wants a “longer and taller” 2,600-mile border wall. When asked about how much taller the wall should be, Rodriguez responded, “twice as much at least.” In the McAllen resident’s view, the border wall would serve as a barrier against the “bad people.”
Mayra Gutierrez, another Latino for Trump who is in the process of obtaining her citizenship so she can vote for Trump, shared her thoughts with CNN:
We do have a lot of problems here with immigration, and I do support his stance for the wall.
Although Latinos have historically voted for Democrats on a roughly 70-30 percent basis, there is a growing segment of the Latino population that recognizes the need for immigration reform.
Maria Espinoza, the daughter of a Hispanic immigrant who came to the United States legally, leads the Rembrance Project in efforts to combat illegal immigration. Espinoza understand the America’s open borders policies leave it susceptible to criminal activity such as drug smuggling. She made the case for building a wall in an opinion piece for LifeZette:
Finally, the wall must be built. The statistics bear it out. Where fencing and barriers have been constructed, apprehensions of illegal aliens have declines as much as 95 percent.
The recent collapse of Venezuela has had many Hispanic Americans on edge. Some are rightfully concerned that the current open border status quo in America could lead to a fundamental shift in the character of American governance. As a result, a growing number of Latino conservatives recognize the importance of strong borders and an immigration system that attracts people who can contribute to the U.S economy and reinforce our culture of limited government and individual liberties.
Indeed, there are Latino “deplorables” out there and the media would be wise to recognize their existence.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
