A Look at the Latinos who Support Trump’s Wall

Published

on

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.

Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn Calls on Ilhan Omar to Resign After Minnesota Democrat Calls to “Dismantle” U.S. “System of Oppression”

Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn called upon Minnesota Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to resign from office on Tuesday, hours after Omar had appeared to endorse the “dismantling” of the American “economy and political systems,” calling them a “system of oppression.”

As long as our economy and our political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shutout, we will perpetuate this inequality. We cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work to dismantle the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.

Omar had made the remarks in the context of arguing that Democratic “criminal justice reform” was insufficient to answer the demands of the Black Lives Matter movement, calling for a more dramatic and wide-ranging restructuring of American society.

Blackburn called on the Minnesota freshman Democrat to resign hours after the anti-American speech in a tweet, stating that Omar could no longer credibly follow her oath to preserve the Constitution after referring to the American system broadly as a “system of oppression.”

Omar’s grandfather Abukar Omar had served as a government official in the dictatorship of Siad Barre in Somalia, and the Omar family sought political refuge in the United States when the Barre dictatorship-known for its human rights abuses and a mass killing of minorities thought of by some as a genocide- was overthrown in a civil war.
