Legal Immigrants for Trump

Have you ever discussed the process to legally immigrate to the United States with someone who has gone through it?

I have.  It is wonderful story no matter who tells it.  It was a common story in my former home of Los Angeles.  But many who told me their story, pre-Obama, were Democrat voters.  I wouldn't be rude, but I'd ask their feelings about illegal immigrants bypassing the lengthy and expensive process, and ask their thoughts about the Democrat Party's support for the criminal class of immigrants.  Sometimes they'd acknowledge the disconnect, but it wasn't enough to budge them from voting Democrat again.

It appears that 2016 may be different.  It appears that many people who previously voted Democrat are seeing that Party as a corrupt group of frauds who rank criminals over the law-abiding.  Or maybe it is Obama's free health care that is driving the votes to Trump this year.

WZ links to this article about nine people who are voting for Trump.  Most are not what you'd call the typical Republican voter.

I moved to the US in 2006 on a work permit. It took nearly five years and thousands of dollars to become a US citizen. I know the process is not perfect, but it’s the law. Why would I want illegals coming in when I had to go through this? It’s not fair that they’re allowed to jump the line and take advantage of so many benefits, ones that I pay for with my tax dollars.

People assume that because I’m a woman, I should vote for the woman; or that because I’m Latina, I should vote for the Democrat. The Democrats have been pandering to minorities and women for the last 50 years. They treat Latinos as if we’re all one big group. I’m Colombian – I don’t like Mariachi music. Donald Trump is not just saying what he thinks people want to hear, he’s saying what they’re afraid to say. I believe that he’s the only candidate who can make America strong and safe again.
