    Donald Trump could win over Hispanics who fear job competition from illegals

    [​IMG]



    To hear political pundits tell it, Donald Trump has little chance to attract enough Hispanic voters to win the presidency in 2016 because of his plans to build a border wall and deport all illegal immigrants in America. Some pollsters and activists who have whipped up past Hispanic support for Republicans, however, see it differently.

    They think Mr. Trump’s lasering in on the economy and his perceived competence in creating jobs will appeal to the one segment of Hispanics that matters most in elections: those who work and tend to vote. That’s because those voters fear illegal immigrants will compete for their jobs under the new Obama amnesty.

    “This stuff you read about how Hispanics are going to run away fromTrump in droves is a Northeastern myth,” said longtime presidential campaign adviser Mark Sanders.

    “Most Hispanics here in East Texas are here legally, they vote, and they are hard-line opponents of illegal immigration,” said Mr. Sanders, a top adviser in Democrat Tony Sanchez’s 2002 campaign to unseat then-Gov. Rick Perry. “The only one they want is Trump — not Hillary, not Bernie. That’s the conundrum for Democrats.”

    Mr. Sanders says Hispanics in East Texas “come here from rural backgrounds, from the lower end of the social and economic ladder. Most of their kids go to community colleges because it’s all their families can afford, and then go directly into the military. They have hard-core patriotism — just what Trump plays into,” Mr. Sanders added.

    Whether Mr. Trump is saying he loves Hispanics or vowing to deport all 11 million or so illegal immigrants, it’s equally music to the ears of many Hispanic voters.

    “I don’t care if he likes me or not as a Hispanic or Latino, as long he creates the jobs he promised,” said Carlo Maffatt, a Mexican immigrant who lives in Las Vegas and who did political liaison work in the Hispanic community for Republicans during the 2012 presidential election. “He is never going to take me out for a beer, so it doesn’t matter whether I like him or not either.

    “The job of the president of the United Stats is to create jobs, not to be the friend of every American,” Mr. Maffatt said.

    Mr. Maffatt said recent Hispanic immigrants have plenty of reason to favor Mr. Trump: They don’t want new immigrants, especially illegal immigrants, competing for “a job for whatever anyone will give them.”

    “When we are new here and desperately trying to make a living, we will charge less than white Anglo-Saxons. We eventually improve our lot, but then when we have more new immigrants coming in, [and] we’re the first to lose our jobs because they’re willing to work for less money,” he said.

    They know unchecked illegal and legal immigration will screw them too bad the blacks will never see this issue as one of the major reasons why jobs are hard to find for them

    Many people want a border and rule of law but are afraid to say it because they don't want to be called raaaacist. Tis why Trump is doing well.

    Will see how Carson deals with the scrutiny of being at the top of the polls. Some of his policy explanations aren't exactly coherent.

    GOP Hispanics Warn Party's Candidates: Ditch Trump Rhetoric
    BOULDER, Colo. -- A coalition of Latino conservative activists warned the Republican presidential field on Tuesday to ditch Donald Trump's rhetoric on immigration, or they risk losing the election.

    "Heed our warning: don't expect us to come to your side during the general election," said Rosario Marín, who served as Treasurer under former President George W. Bush. "If you are not with us now, we won't be with you then. If you insult us now, we will be deaf to you then. If you take us for granted now, we will not recognize you then."

    Marín was flanked by nearly two dozen other activists, small business owners and elected officials who met earlier that day in Boulder as part of an event organized by the American Principles Project's Latino Partnership to discuss the upcoming election. The group said they weren't endorsing any candidate, but were unified in their opposition to one: Trump.

    Although others in the group named Trump, Marín refused to say his name and instead decried the "nonstop vitriolic insults" from "a wannabe politician."

    "Foolishly, some candidates think they don't need the Hispanic vote in the primary, so they pander to the voters with extreme views instead of just showing us who they are," Marín added.

    She and others warned that Trump could not win the White House, and any candidate that embraced his rhetoric or policies would inevitably lose as well. Tony Suarez, National Hispanic Christioan Leadership Conference executive vice president, said Trump's candidacy "needs to be canceled like his last reality TV program."

    "Mr. Trump has become a promoter of hate, division and insult and if Mr. Trump were to be the Republican nominee - I don't think he has a chance at winning the general election," Suarez said.

    The group described themselves as "stalwarts in the Latino community," noting they've all been active on past presidential campaigns rallying and turning out Latino voters.

    They threatened to withhold their support from candidates who are not more receptive to the Latino community and who do not reject Trump's rhetoric, but emphasized that they're not unified in support of a particular policy platform.

    Alfonso Aguilar, director of the American Principles Project said, however, the group does believe candidates who oppose birthright citizenship, and those who focus just on border security without offering other "constructive solutions" to the immigration problem are in the wrong.

    "If Republicans cannot be constructive on the issues, Latino voters will not listen to our candidates when they address other issues," he said.

    There was some disagreement in the group on whether to also criticize Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, by name. Ultimately, the group.

    Cristobal Alex, president of the left leaning Latino Victory Project, said he was "happy" the GOP Hispanics "were finally doing the bare minimum and making it clear they won't support Donald Trump for president."

    But he said other candidates had also used inflammatory language and support policies similar to Trump's.

    "Putting your field on notice is great, but if conservatives really want to be taken seriously by the Latino community they have to go beyond doing the bare minimum to condemn inflammatory rhetoric and start holding candidates accountable even when it's not politically expedient," Alex said in a news release.

    Coincidentally, the GOP Hispanics held their meeting the same day Sioux City, Iowa students, activists and residents held a silent protest in opposition to Trump holding a rally on the high school campus in their school district. The protesters wanted the district to enforce its zero-tolerance anti-bullying policy to keep Trump from holding the rally there.

    The coalition of GOP Hispanics plans to meet again in Nevada before the next GOP debate to discuss whether the field has heeded its warning, and at that time, Aguilar warned, the group could "name more names" of candidates who are anathema to their views.

    Depressing. That's like saying "hey, we fixed your intestinal parasitic worm problem, but now your pee is razor blades."
