  • Sep 1 - Hispanic Republicans Abandon Ship

    Comment: Hispanic Republicans Abandon Ship
    After Donald Trump's long anticipated immigration speech which simply reiterated his worst words on immigration, Politico reports that many Republican Hispanic leaders who feel betrayed are abandoning ship.

    Jacob Monty, a member of Trump's National Hispanic Advisory Council, quickly resigned after the speech. Another member, Ramiro Pena, a Texas pastor, said Trump's speech likely cost him the election and said he'd have to reconsider being part of a "scam." And Alfonso Aguilar, the president of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, said in an interview that he is "inclined" to pull his support.

    "I was a strong supporter of Donald Trump when I believed he was going to address the immigration problem realistically and compassionately," said Monty, a Houston attorney who has aggressively made the Latino case for Trump. "What I heard today was not realistic and not compassionate."

    "I am so sorry but I believe Mr. Trump lost the election tonight," said Pena, a pastor at Waco's Christ the King Church. "The 'National Hispanic Advisory Council' seems to be simply for optics and I do not have the time or energy for a scam."

    "It's so disappointing because we feel we took a chance, a very risky chance," Aguilar said. "We decided to make a big U-turn to see if we could make him change. We thought we were moving in the right direction... we're disappointed. We feel misled."

    Just as Donald Trump used the President of Mexico for a photo-op and then stabbed him in the back within hours, looks like he did the same to many Hispanic leaders who had trusted what he said to them in private. This is a recurring pattern with Donald Trump, who is obviously not ready for prime time. Those Republicans who have hitched on to the Trump ship risk going down with it in November, unless Mr. Trump throws them overboard even before November.
