Trump’s Hispanic fans withdraws their support after his immigration speech

Donald trump’s most prominent Hispanic supporters are turning their backs on the Republican nominee following his major speech on immigration, Wednesday.

Jacob Monty, an attorney based in Houston, resigned from the Republican candidate’s National Hispanic Advisory Council after hearing the speech in Phoenix, Politico reported early Thursday morning. “I was a strong supporter of Donald Trump when I believed he was going to address the immigration problem realistically and compassionately, what I heard today was not realistic and not compassionate” Monty told the news site.

Monty Added “When I saw that, I had to resign because I’m not going to be a prop for his image like the president of Mexico was yesterday,” Monty

“Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation, “That is what it means to have laws and have a country.” Trump said during his remarks Wednesday in Phoenix.

For many Hispanic conservatives like Monty, who had advocated passionately for Trump, the speech was not merely a disappointment, but a betrayal.
