Illegal aliens ... not a blasted one is an “illegal immigrant”.
I’m a minority in the small rural town where I live. The majority of the townfolk here are Hispanic. The majority of them are descendants of explorers who remained here when Francisco Vázquez de Coronado y Luján came through this area in his search for the Seven Cities of Gold. They do not like illegal aliens.
The jobs and businesses of LEGAL latinos are indeed jeopardized by ILLEGAL latino immigration.
Trump needs to win over legal latinos to the conservative cause. They belong on OUR side.

Work, family and respect for the law are OUR values and are the three traits that create civilized countries. We can see eye to eye with anyone who shares these values.
