    Former longtime Univision anchor María Elena Salinas revealed on Tuesday evening that many Latinos are buying the arguments President Donald Trump is making about illegal immigration.
    Salinas, whom the New York Times once described as the “voice of Hispanic America,” told CNN host Don Lemon after Trump’s Tuesday evening Oval Office address that she is saddened that Latinos “are buying some of these arguments against undocumented immigrants” that Trump has been making.

    “And it’s very sad to see that our own people, who are immigrants themselves, are attacking these immigrants that are trying to come in, knowing themselves how difficult the situation is in a lot of these Latin American countries,” she continued. “And, you know, they’re buying it, and some people, just like some other Trump supporters, are saying, well, you know, so what if he tells lies, as long as we have lower unemployment among the Latino community.”

    They're "buying it" because they know it's true.

    A lot of them are "buying it" because they are Americans, not Mexicans or Central Americans any more.

    They are Americans of Hispanic descent and like all good Americans they want to see the borders of their country protected and the rule of law enforced.

    You know, in a place like Texas there is no difference between (for want of a better word) Anglo/Texans and those of Hispanic lineage. These big city liberals need to go down there and they will experience something quite different than what they have in their minds concerning Americans of Hispanic/Mexican descent and what they believe about America.

    At the job I retired from, about 50% of the workers were Americans of Hispanic descent. They had no patience for illegals...at all.
