Republican Latinos Call Out Candidates On Immigration Rhetoric
Donald Trump was the only GOP candidate specifically criticized by a group of Latino Republicans who want an end to anti-immigrant rhetoric in the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump has called for deporting all undocumented immigrants in the U.S. and building “a great wall” on the border with Mexico.
Alfonso Aguilar is director of American Principles Project’s Latino Partnership and leader of the Latino Republican group, which met yesterday ahead of the third GOP debate tonight. He also served as chief of the U.S. Office of Citizenship under George W. Bush.
Aguilar tells Here & Now’s Robin Young that if Trump is the nominee, the Republicans will lose the White House.
