Salinas: Many Latinos ‘Buying’ Trump’s Arguments Against Illegal Immigration

Former longtime Univision anchor María Elena Salinas revealed on Tuesday evening that many Latinos are buying the arguments President Donald Trump is making about illegal immigration.

Salinas, whom the New York Times once described as the “voice of Hispanic America,” told CNN host Don Lemon after Trump’s Tuesday evening Oval Office address that she is saddened that 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.”

“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.”

Most Mexicans I know which is quite a few are 100% behind the President. They are thrilled with people from South and Central America anyway and only see them as bringing down their wages and keeping them stagnant.

They need to fix their OWN countries! Quit running, quit putting theivs and criminals in charge! A lot of these countries do have vast wealth in natural resources, they just keep putting people in charge whose only goal is to exploit them for as much wealth as they can grab. The failure falls squarely on their own shoulders and need to quit looking to the United States to solve their their self created ills!

There is a reason other countries accept help from America. The reason you ask, is because we do it and have been doing it for so long they expect it.
Think about it, when you were a kid and fortunate enough to have parents that could give you some walking around money you would take it. If they cut you off and a job was offered, you would take it.

Trump is correct when he started that hehis responsible for some of the illegal immigrant problem because he started the good economy. We forgive you Mr President. Don't change a thing. You are doing great. MAGA

We can not be the safety net and dumping ground for all people. We must take care of our citizens first. Sorry there are a lot of corrupt parts of the world. We can not save them all with out sacrificing our selves and that something I am not willing to do.
