28% of Latino voters supported Donald Trump in 2016.
In September 2019, the Trump Administration sent $120 million to aid Venezuelan refugees.
Latino voters say immigration is not the most important issue.
Trump’s support among Hispanics is larger than it was 4 years ago.
(NewsReady.com) – If you’ve watched the mainstream media over the last four years you’d probably walk away thinking President Donald Trump hates Latinos. The Left accuses him of ripping families apart and putting kids in cages. Democrats claim they’re the only party who can save Hispanic voters and their loved ones. It’s a neverending barrage of propaganda — and it’s anything but true.
Not only does the president care about Latinos, but their values are often aligned as well.
The Same Value System
Some pundits seem to believe that immigration is the number one issue on the minds of Latino voters.
The Pew Research Center asked Hispanic voters what they most wanted the government to address and their answers aren’t far off from the president’s priorities.
- 73% want to improve education in America
- 69% believe protecting our country from terrorism is a top priority
- 66% would like to see the economy strengthened
- 54% worry about healthcare costs
- 46% said dealing with immigration is important
Immigration was their last priority. That’s because not every Latino has family members who are illegal aliens. Their families have either been here for many generations or they migrated here through the proper channels — meaning legally.
The Sanctity of Life
Another issue that’s very important to many Latino voters is abortion. The Public Religion Research Institute took a survey of Hispanic Americans and found 48% do not support the procedure. President Trump is working hard to ensure the US respects the sanctity of life. In his 2020 State of the Union Address, the president called for a ban on all late-term abortions.
He stands with Latinos on that issue.
Trump Supports Immigrants Too
On the topic of immigration, there’s no doubt the president is tough. He believes strong borders are important for the country’s well-being. That doesn’t mean he’s a monster. Trump supported refugees from Venezuela, offering more than $100 million in aid.
During the coronavirus outbreak, the Trump Administration took steps to protect immigrants who were seeking green cards and citizenship. US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) notified people that COVID-19 tests and treatment would not impact their status. Also, green card holders who are waiting for a naturalization appointment are able to reschedule without penalty. Finally, deportations for certain offenders are being paused until the virus is under control.
Trump Can Do More With Four More Years
Despite what the Left and the media say, the president supports Latino voters very much. He cares about the issues that are important to them. Trump supports refugees and even made sure his administration helped immigrants during a pandemic. If President Trump is re-elected, it’s safe to assume you’ll see more of the same during his second term. Progress can only happen if people vote in November.
