Per the recent Harvard/ Harris Poll Hispanic Americans support de facto Third Party President Donald Trump on immigration enforcement (65%) and not allowing illegal immigrants to vote (73%). Despite the tired old cliches pushed by the Democrats’ media outlets (I’m an Independent Voter) President Trump garnered more of the Hispanic vote in 2016 than Mitt Romney got in 2012. That puts the lie to assumptions that Hispanic Americans are offended by immigration enforcement.
Recently praise for President Trump on all this and more came from the New Mexico chapter of Latinos for Trump. The links are below, but first some excerpts:
“Michaela Chavez (not pictured) is a former Democrat who says she’s been a supporter of Donald Trump from Day One. She likes how his administration is handling the economy and feels he’s negotiating better trade deals for the country.” (Note from Balladeer: I’m a former Democrat, too, now Independent.)
“And when it comes to immigration, the Albuquerque resident supports the president’s desire to build a wall on the Mexican border.”
“I’m all for immigration, as long as it is done the right way,” she said.
“Chavez is convinced Trump is building a better future for her family.”
“Ernie Salazar weighed in: ““Hispanic unemployment is at a historical low,” he said. “African American unemployment is at a historic low. He’s (Trump’s) taking care of people of color. If you look in a box of crayons, you’ll see a white crayon, too.”
Valencia County alone, which traditionally votes Democrat, went for Trump in 2016.
Marcella Trujillo Melendez said “I believe that he knows his job. His job is
to put America first. He’s not the president of the world.”
“Like Chavez and Salazar, Melendez believes Trump is doing “a bang-up job” on the economy.”
