  1. remember this in 2020

  2. Latinos Democrats for Trump ! We want the wall .
    If we don't build the WALL very soon the whole country will be starving . NO TO GLOBAL MIGRATION. NO TO OPEN BORDERS . NO TO HUMAN TRAFFICKING for removal of organs in Mexico( heart, kidneys, liver. lungs , intestines etc) NO TO SELLING of CHILDREN by their Central American parents to the Mexican cartel. DEMOCRATS in favor of the building the WALL . NOW ! 👍🏻👍🏻🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  3. Wasn't Mexico suppose to pay for the wall? Why is he trying negotiate with the American people/congress?. Asking genuinely.

  4. California was a great state until the Latinos came and destroyed it.

  5. More lies from the liar-in-chief. "I'm gonna make Mexico pay for a wall"!! (a PROVEN lie) "I had bone spurs, so couldn't serve my country!!" (A PROVEN spineless coward's lie) "I'm a stable genius!!" (Another PROVEN, bare-faced lie.) "I [draft-dodging] know more than the generals!!" (the PROVEN llie of a fool and an ignoramus.) That's enough of the BIG ones for now. The man's an OBVIOUS fuckwit. As for depriving decent working people of their salaries and inviting fear and hardship for NOTHING what a callous, uncaring fuckwit. Impeach NOW!!

  6. Traitor flunkeys to a traitor president say what ?

  7. Voting and nominations for public office should be limited to third generation Americans. This is the best way to secure the country and guarantee cultural integration. Such laws do exist in other countries. MAGA

  8. Hispanics benefit from this.
    Meanwhile, I'm homeless.

  9. Dems are idiots. Why would they obstruct Spanky David Denisson from building a wall that is funded by Mexico. Who will pay for the wall? MEXICO!

  10. Aren't Hispanic Americans just Americans? Why is it that the mainstream media and academics are so focused on race and assume that the particular group stick to only one viewpoint?

  11. Everyone reading this should boycott Red Lobster. They've pulled advertising from Tucker's show after pressure from left wing activists, citing that he doesn't conform to their values. What's interesting is that Red Lobster makes many of their dishes using sea-food (mostly shrimp) from Thailand which uses slave labor from human trafficking. That means that Red lobster doesn't "conform to my values" either.

  12. Latinos for trump all day every day. What’s best for USA is best for its people be them white black hispanic Asian Americans. Let’s fix our problems here at home before we can help the rest of the world. Is it wrong for this mix race nation to want to organize itself first and its people

  13. That is the beauty of Gods fresh breeze is cool and loving time to work together and love people and give thanks to our God ,for more blessing

  14. Americans + Latino Citizens = Stronger Together.

  15. Let's not forget the fact that Latinos were not part of the Avengers.

  16. Russian hacking #'s

  17. Wow. This is more shocking than any of our NFL breaking news today… hope you get the cash, Pete!

  18. Trump begins his third year with a 37% job approval rating; 59% disapprove of his job performance.

  19. PEOPLE THIS IS ABOUT A HOSTILE GOVERMENT TAKE OVER AND TREASON ,,TRUMP WILL NOT FOR GET ,,LOL TRUMP STILL WINNING, HIS NUMBERS ARE UP 19 POINTS BUT MSM WONT TELL YOU THIS ,!

  20. I'm a legal Latino the party has lost there minds Cesar Chavez didn't support illegal immigration, too left now they, dont represent me.

  21. Hypocrisy on the right is just unbelievable, they benefited from the presence of illegals and still do but all of the sudden illegals are bad just because Trump open his mouth. Illegal immigration has always been a problem and it's been swept under the rug because it was good for everyone who hired them or use their service as in restaurants, hotels Construction, maintenance.. Etc..  and that's why nobody wants to fix it. Even Trump has illegals working  in his hotels and casinos.

  22. Pretty much latinos born here dont know how hard life can be in another country that is corrupt and the ones who come here when they are older they are just crappy people that r selfish that think (ive made it dont care about anyone else but me ) 🤔

  23. set up camp for caravan people next to peloci's mansion wall in california

  24. Immigration is what made our country great but when you start throwing kids over fences, rocks at our deputies and expect to be let in because you think it's your right, No Way. Do it the legal way as millions have done as well as my grandparents from Mexico and Honduras did. Build our Wall🇺🇸

  25. Yep! We see all sides of this, and a wall is for our safety. You can't go into ANY developed country illegally. I work in retail, in a very left state, and the customers always try to talk crap to me about President Trump. It's pricless seeing their facial expressions when I say, I like Trump and there's always been a wall.

  26. You sure he didn't pay someone to rig that poll? I mean you can't be sure at this point.

  27. I wonder what if Obama proposed a wall, would dems vote for it?

  28. Why is public opinions and they are just that opinions. Questions upon

  29. One of my best friends is Hispanic American and he was born in mexico and grew up in the states sadly when he turned 18 (an adult) his visa expired and he went back. Despite growing up in the states he respects the system and went back to mexico and has applied for a green card to come here LEGALLY. He despises the illegal aliens who spoil the reputation of all the honest, trustworthy, and hardworking Hispanics like himself and his family.

  30. Middle Easterners for Trump!

  31. The latino kiss asses !

  32. 16 Trump Associates, 28 Meetings, 33 Indictments & Guilty Pleas, OVER TWO DOZEN SEALED INDICTMENTS and counting.

  33. Facts show the wall works! Border Patrol has confirmed it!
    All Americans want the wall. Dems are lying, Texas is feeling the invasion. Texas want the Wall!!!!!

  34. Do you ppl know the presidency is more then just your little social issues you have ???? Do you know how the world works ? Or do you believe like all liberals that we just need to stick to our own country be free to do drugs open borders make Love to whomever you want and be happy let’s not forget close all Christian churches tear down every white statue change the constitution. Are you ppl really that stupid? Tell me why you hate America and the President? Your in a safe space now go on please tell me what you want again this is a safe space cry if you want it’s ok. Now I’ll listen please be free to talk. Safe space snowflake ❄️

  35. Why latinos that are legal are against other latinos who could have what they have. it’s a case of jealousy and intercultural racism… and if you as political party can take advantage of the well good for you!!! And trust me the majority of Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos and general hate Little Hands Donny!!!

  36. Secure Fence Act of 2006 — Where's the $50 B allocatedd for this?

  37. I don’t see why this would be a surprise. I’m Latino and I can confirm that every (law-abiding) Latino immigrant is conservative at heart. They are religious, pro-life, hate high taxes, hate regulations hindering economic growth, and hate welfare. These are all traits that make them leave their home countries. Unfortunately their children are the ones who are brainwashed into thinking they want the same socialist government their parents ran away from.

  38. Polls, moles, schmoles. Haven't we learned not to trust them. Go Trump!

  39. I know my ancestors didn't come here to make it exactly like the places they left, but with more feminists.

  40. Spanish networks are all liberturds who miss state facts and twist wording in their translation to latinos..i know cause ive caught it in radio and tv..spanish speaking fams dont know cause they believe what network tells them….and networks know that and take advantage…it would be awesome if there was a conservative spanish network

  41. Just read the comments of the Hispanics on Univision and Telemundo when the report is about the wall and illegal emigration. The majority is pro wall and against the illegals.

  42. Democrats for Trump 2020

  43. every race will have their tio tom'as.

  44. Pelosi and Schumer don’t give a rats ass about us. Term limits

  45. The Mexicans love Trump

  46. I been ashamed of being Mexican since age 4 since Mexico did nothing for my parents yet stole their lands of leaving. Now as a US citizen, I would give my life for a good cause and that is destroying the Democrats who are a fraud and killing the American dream.

  47. How do THE MUSLIMS Mexican dreamers they are not real Latino FINISH YOUR HISTORY MEXICAN ARE NOT. They are invaders. They are lower class people who can't read or write who have smaller brain's WE are NOT going to give away everything WE earned too people who are not real Latino dreamers a FREE PASS OR RIDE take EM to your house and feed medical clothes ALL there problems.

  48. Instead of focusing on the WALL, we have mayor issues, like EDUCATION, Fix Education First.

  49. As a result of Comrade Trump, Hispanics are converting to Islam in never before seen numbers.

  50. look at the anti roman church stuff there got going ,anti christian anti married people and kids

  51. won't kick out the crime ,wall it upl

  52. Here is a question for everyone to think about..please think about it.

    Why do we have ports of entry?
    Because we check for drugs, criminals, everything that isn’t allowed to enter.

    The wall simply forces people into the port of entry, like a fence forces a cow to enter the coral let’s say.
    The wall is not a perfect barrier, it only slows down the criminal which allows the border patrol time to capture the illegal entry…

    The port of entry is not perfect but it is a invisible wall so to speak,,, you can’t cross there either unless checked

  53. I’m from Costa Rica. We need a wall down there also. Liberal people have a total disregard for population security. If we don’t make the wall this country will be re colonized by 3rd world countries communist and Muslim radicals. There are people out there who want the United States gone! Liberals are working hard to help them achieve this! We have to STOP THIS INVASION, It’s not immigration, it’s invasion!

  54. fake news fake president criminall government not justice in America 🇮🇹🇨🇴🇵🇷🇨🇺🇵🇦🇮🇹🇵🇪🇩🇴

  55. Latino families that are citizens don't need Sanctuary Cities and started legal process years ago,so if any future immigrants wish to come to the border they must start legal process for it upsets those that are citizens in USA.

  56. Hispanic in Colorado 100% Republican and not afraid to be proud of it..

  57. I'M A MEXICAN BY DEFAULT. HOWEVER, I'M A PROUD AMERICAN CITIZEN. MY ALLEGIANCE IS TO THIS GREAT COUNTRY. I SUPPORT MR. TRUMP AND WILL VOTE FOR HIM AGAIN NEXT ELECTION. I HOPE HE CAN GET THE WALL BUILD BEFORE THE 2020 ELECTION.

  58. VIVA TRUMP!!!!!!!!

  59. Democrats i still believe

  60. As a latina I'm so proud of our President Donald Trump, he's the only President that I know that is an favor of the people and not the politicians hi is not getting rich like other, Donald Trump 2020!!!

  61. I think the Democrats are believing fake news polls.

  62. Latinos needs to get over the fence. They might have come in before the wall was up but they should go to Mexico with the other Latinos

  63. Democrats are fine with border security… Drones, guards, dogs, towers. Although, a wall is not an answer

  64. How DARE Republicans blame Democrats for the shutdown. Trump shut the US down and now expects the Democrats to give him his wall, like a spoiled brat at the supermarket checkout demanding candy. The wall is immoral and so are Trump and the corrupt Republicans – you should be ashamed of yourselves!!
    ​@

  65. What ever or whoever you are as an American citizen you should be concerned about the moves our government makes for our safety and prosperity! Not building a wall given the influx of millions of illegals is not in the interest of this country or its tax paying citizens! A wall is the right thing to do !

  66. Mexico will pay for the wall !!!! They may be a little late since their running on "HISPANIC TIME" !!!!!!!!!!!

  67. Third world Hispanics are superstitious. Start rumors and put characters on the border of Chupacabras and La Llorona and the old reliable Devil. That will stop many

  68. Y'all worried about immigrants threating American lives when a white American just killed 5 people in Florida in a bank & School/ mass shootings committed by Americans frequently… awesome logic 😂

  69. Not true! I don't know. where this latinos are,is so clear this guy his name is Gus? Is a Trump kiss ass but latinos don't supporter it.

  70. These Hispanics here gave them tacos and burritos 😂

  71. Most of these people are Hispanic they are not that ignorant these are silly white boys!!

  72. Fox news paid a few Hispanics some tacos and burritos, to say this bs! intelligent Hispanics hate 45😱

  73. Yeah. Hispanic here.
    Bronx born. USA. Build that wall.
    You are considered illegal when you cross illegally.
    Idc if you're Hispanic, Dutch, Egyptian, Haitian, or you identify as a Carrot cake with Creamcheese Icing. You're Illegal.
    Good Night.

  74. So glad I voted for him
    Will again 2020

  75. Those Hispanics at Trump's rally, obviously have a larger amygdala than most Hispanics, which makes them more fearful of others even if they share a similar culture. According to the latest behavioral research from European scientists the so-called conservatives tend to have a larger amygdala which turns them into real scary cats, or as the Republicans call Democrats, snowflakes. Showing their tendency to project what they really are.

  76. Mexican born and raised, legal migrant to this great nation. I know we NEED this border wall. Libtards are in denial of the crisis we're living on the south.

  77. Maga maga maga maga

  78. Trumps term in office is not only for White Americans, but also for Black Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, All Americans.

  79. Without a wall the feds could confuse legal Hispanics here with the ones coming illegally over border….

  80. Get ice out of local towns and put them too protect border….

  81. Send ice too protect border were there needed..I'm an american and sick of hearing about it….

  82. Fix immigration… give good poor Hispanics a chance and deport gang related or cartel smuggling people….

  83. Problem solved….

  84. most of the Hispanic that for the Wall are Mexican American giving the fact that few Mexican are coming here due to low birth rate in Mexico and because of job growth there most of the people who coming here now are central American who are joining gangs  ..

  85. Trump will win Hispanic vote in 2020!

  86. I may be of Hispanic decent, but I'm American before anything else.

  87. That's gross what's Fox doing on my boots I stepped right into it gross

  88. Democrat but I’m for border improvements 4 x ‘s fold.

  89. They need to know it's not about keeping Mexicans out, it's about keeping people out.

  90. I noticed that it is true that American Hispanics are very much in favor of the wall. I talk to a lot of people from Mexico and other places in South and Central America.

    For example my cable guy from mexico had less sympathy for the caravans coming here and even for DACCA recipients……than I do. He told me he was frightened….He said he ran away from trouble and America is letting it in…..

  91. Who cares what hispanics think about the wall. Americans care how Americans feel about it

  92. Keep building the wall, god bless America and the American flag .

  93. I've been struggling with my family because I'm conservative and support Trump, they call all kinds of names and that my family. So I'm really happy to see more Hispanic brothers and sister with similar beliefs it gives me hope

  94. Hispanic & Latino are 2 differents with many variencies.
