Hispanic Evangelicals Urge Trump to Go Beyond His Wall

by Kevin Cirilli | Bloomberg.com  |  published on July 10, 2016

After the Dallas ambush led Donald Trump to cancel his Florida events on Friday, several members of his campaign met privately with Hispanic evangelical leaders in Miami.

The talks represented an intensification of efforts by the campaign to repair ties with the group, which have been strained since he referred to undocumented Mexican immigrants as “rapists” on the first day of his candidacy.

“A complete disappointment,” Mark Gonzales, executive director of the Hispanic Action Network, said of the rhetoric against Latinos. He spoke to Bloomberg Politics after attending the meeting on Friday at Trump Doral Miami golf course. “But after several meetings in the past few weeks, we believe he’s going to correct course—and we’re giving him latitude to correct course.”

    Donald Trump is a different kind of candidate. He isn’t trained in the art of nuanced words. He says what comes to mind. Donald needs to make sure his Hispanic relations doesn’t end with a wall. He should point out that he believes in unlimited opportunities for those who come to the country legally and are willing to work hard. For most of us there is a very clear difference between a legal immigrant and an illegal immigrant. Trump needs to make it clear to Hispanic voters that there is a difference in his policy between these two groups.

    I want to know why Obama uses our constitution to legitimise their illegal status. Obama, what a loser!

    Without including rapists among this group of ILLEGAL’s, how many have kiIIed innocent Americans due to them DUI/DWI without registration or insurance of the vehicles they are driving on our roads. This barely even gets mentioned in the press! They sure can get licenses easy enough with the ‘Motor Voter Law’ passed by Slick Willy, with Cloward and Piven, directly behind him as they cheered this legislation that would assist in the ‘overwhelming’ the system (more gov’t assistance programs) and allowing them to illegally vote, mostly if not all in favor of the Dims!
    Socialism is great until you run out of other peoples money…the end game!

    What is so difficult to understand exactly what illegal means … if it is illegal it is against the law … period !

    If they are illegal aliens then they broke the law … send them back to where they came from . They should receive NOTHING but a one way trip home .

    No… No…. Trump was CORRECT in calling the illegal entry immigrants “Rapist”, because many of them ARE! It’s just ONE of the reasons citizens are backing Trump, because he is stating exactly what we KNOW is the truth! I’m hoping Trump doesn’t back down one single bit.

    Now if this group had said, “We will stop the illegal immigration, if …….” and give some ideas, THEN they would be saying something American wanted to hear. THIS BS is something we are NOT interested in.

    Alright Trump, don’t give in to these rapist and thugs that can’t and won’t be locked up for anything! Half are good, the other half are nothing but gutter rats!
