Marco Gutierrez claims that Mexicans are so invasive, if not stopped we will have ‘taco trucks’ on every street corner. While tacos are delicious, the state of our national security and prosperity is more important.
After Donald Trump’s remarks on immigration in Arizona this week, the question wasn’t whether the Republican would lose Latino support, but rather, how much.
The scope of the backlash is still coming into focus, but some of the developments are already striking. We discussed yesterday that Jacob Monty, a member of Trump’s National Hispanic Advisory Council, quickly resigned from the campaign team in the wake of Trump’s remarks, and soon after, Ramiro Pena, a Texas pastor and Trump adviser, also quit.
According to a tally from TPM, “at least four members” of Trump’s Hispanic panel have withdrawn resigned, withdrawn their support, or both.
Of course, the Republican nominee hasn’t lostall of his Latino supporters, though in Marco Gutierrez’s case, that may or may not be a good thing. The Huffington Post reported on last night’s episode of MSNBC’s “All In.”
Latinos for Trump cofounder Marco Gutierrez issued the strange prophecy during a discussion of Trump’s proposal to deport millions. He began by quoting “Star Trek,” saying “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”
Then, for good measure, he added, “and different times, different problems.”
When asked to clarify, Gutierrez went from “Trek” to trucks, specifically taco trucks. “My culture is a very dominant culture,” he warned. “And it’s imposing, and it’s causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re gonna have taco trucks every corner.”
