Racists loved Trump immigration speech,

Latino Republicans head for the exits

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

White supremacists loved Donald Trump's August 31 speech on immigration, but Latino GOP supporters have begun deserting his campaign in droves.

Ex-Klan Wizard David Duke was 'ecstatic' over the speech, he said, so much so that he live-tweeted every anti-immigrant remark Trump made.

Jared Taylor, editor of the white nationalist publication American Renaissance, said it was a 'hell of a speech. Almost perfect.'

Richard Spencer, president of the white nationalist think tank National Policy Institute, proclaimed, 'Trump is back!'

On the other hand, many of Trump's highest-profile Latino supporters are fleeing his campaign. Jacob Monty, a member of Trump's National Hispanic Advisory Council, has resigned, and Alfonso Aguilar said in an interview that he is 'inclined' to pull his support.

'I was a strong supporter of Donald Trump when I believed he was going to address the immigration problem realistically and compassionately,' said Monty, a Houston attorney who has aggressively supported Trump in the Latino community.

'What I heard today was not realistic and not compassionate.'

He withdrew from the pro-Trump group following Trump's speech in Phoenix, in which Trump reiterated calls for a border wall and said that all immigrants in the country illegally should be subject to deportation.

Another member of Trump's Latino group, Texas pastor Ramiro Peña said Trump's speech likely cost him the election and said he would have to reconsider being part of what he labeled a 'scam.'

Peña delivered a harsh condemnation in an email to senior Trump and Republican National Committee leaders, obtained by Politico.

'I am so sorry, but I believe Mr. Trump lost the election tonight,' said Peña, a pastor at Waco's Christ the King Church. 'The 'National Hispanic Advisory Council' seems to be simply for optics, and I do not have the time or energy for a scam.'

Aguilar set aside his early qualms about Trump's anti-Latino rhetoric and wrote a letter of support for the GOP candidate signed by himself and other prominent Latino conservatives. Since then, he has repeatedly defended Trump in media appearances.

'It's so disappointing because we feel we took a chance, a very risky chance,' Aguilar said. 'We decided to make a big U-turn to see if we could make him change. We thought we were moving in the right direction...we're disappointed. We feel misled.'
