Donald Trump is not the darling of the Mexican American Community

In the lead up to the first Republican presidential debates, tonight on Fox News, many will be listening closely to the messages from the candidates. One particular candidate, Donald Trump, has specifically ruffled the feathers of many Mexican-Americans. His comments during his speech announcing his candidacy were particularly offensive to citizens of Hispanic decent.

During his speech he said:

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best… They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs.They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting. And it only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably from the Middle East. But we don’t know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence, we don’t know what’s happening. And it’s got to stop and it’s got to stop fast.”

Here in Central Texas, his words have resonated with the Mexican-American community. I sat down with Texas State student, Brenda Camacho, a resident of Laredo, Texas to get her thoughts on Mr. Trump.
