Getty Images Former long time Univision anchor María Elena Salinas exposed on Tuesday evening that lots of Latinos are purchasing the arguments President Donald Trump is making about prohibited immigration.
Salinas, whom theNew York City Timeswhen explained as the “voice of Hispanic America,” informed CNN host Don Lemon after Trump’s Tuesday night Oval Office address that she is saddened that Latinos “are purchasing some of these arguments against undocumented immigrants” that Trump has been making.
” And it’s really sad to see that our own individuals, who are immigrants themselves, are assaulting these immigrants that are trying to come in, knowing themselves how tough the situation is in a lot of these Latin American countries,” she continued. “And, you understand, they’re purchasing it, and some people, similar to some other Trump fans, are stating, well, you understand, so what if he informs lies, as long as we have lower unemployment among the Latino neighborhood.”
In his Oval Workplace address, Trump particularly mentioned that illegal migration harms African-Americans and Hispanic Americans.
” It strains public resources and drives down jobs and wages,” Trump said of illegal migration. “Among those hardest hit are African-Americans and Hispanic Americans.”
During the 2016 governmental project, Trump, in addition to making the financial case for less prohibited immigrants, also explicitly mentioned that the media typically disregard Latino households who have been taken advantage of by unlawful immigrant criminal offenses.
Trump ended up shocking the political and media establishments by doing better amongst Hispanic voters than Mitt Romney did 4 years before. And though the media have actually attempted to vilify Trump as a “racist” who dislikes brown individuals, Trump’s assistance among Latinos has remained constant.
A December Associated Press report mentioned “the GOP’s position among Hispanics has actually not damaged throughout the Trump administration, in spite of the president’s rhetoric versus immigrants and the celebration’s shift to the right on immigration.”
” Though Latino voters are a crucial part of the Democratic union, there is a bigger bloc of reliable Republican Latinos than lots of think,” the Associated Press explained.
AP’s VoteCast information from the 2018 midterm elections apparently discovered that “32 percent of Latinos elected Republicans” while other midterm election surveys “likewise discovered roughly one-third of Latinos supporting the GOP.”
The Associated Press kept in mind that “the stability of Republicans’ share of the Latino vote annoys Democrats, who say actions like Trump’s family separation policy and his demonization of an immigrant caravan must drive Latinos out of the GOP.”
