We spent a few days in DC last week and had the chance to speak with Mario Lopez of the Hispanic Leadership Fund. Lopez has been an outspoken critic of Trump’s immigration policy, but he also shares why he thinks the Republican Party can help the Latino community.
Xenophobic ? Latinos receive none of this , compared to treatment of the Irish , Italians , Swedes ( yes , the blond haired Swedes )
who eventually proved their critics wrong by becoming model American citizens, conforming to American standards . They did it, by coming here LEGALLY in the
first place , leaving their loyalties to the home Country behind , and with an overall much lower
population in the US , at the time . They did it WITHOUT receiving any welfare other than a free public school
education . Switch to CA, where the Leftist government gives as much as $50,000 in tax money to a typical illegal alien family when you include free hospital and free medical care . The Anglos don’t receive free hospital or medical care , but we have to pay for
out and for THEIRS ? So don’t wonder why there is resentment and people are leaving this State by the droves .
It’s not racism – it’s the pure economic unfairness of it all . We were just in Mexico . The people there seem relatively
HAPPIER and more content than Latinos here. They receive next to nothing from the government .
This aside from the fact that millions of illegals and their families do not even seek this money, because they have morals
and standards and realize the unfairness of it all . It would be as if millions of illegal Americans went down to Mexico and demanded
billions of dollars in welfare from the Mexican people . Free schooling , medical care, hospitalization , food stamps,
Cal Fresh ( lots of money ) scholarships , free books , free breakfasts , lunches , etc. etc. that the Mexican people would
pay for , while they ( the Americans ) would pay NOTHING for it, or pay in in State or Federal tax . Of course, the Mexican
people would rightly resent and never stand for that .
It’s racist , it’s greedy and it’s WRONG . Multiply that by millions of people just in CA and we can see why the State is bankrupt and going down in so many ways . My Latino friends all agree with this
They came here legally and did it the right way or at least , if they didn’t come here legally , they APPRECIATE what they
