ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Hispanic voters in Florida, New Mexico and California have waved Mexican flags and bashed Donald Trump piñatas - clashing with police, at times - to protest the Republican presidential contender's hard line approach to immigration.
Yet far from the protests, an increasingly vocal Hispanic minority is speaking out in favor of the brash billionaire. They are backing Trump even in the face of resentment and suspicion from friends and family, who are among the overwhelming majority of non-white voters opposed to the New York businessman's candidacy...

The same way Black Republican/Conservatives do.

In other words: racists.
lol...those “vocal” hard working Hispanic-Americans are gonna overtake our Afro-American brovers like Grant took Richmond...and I welcome it!!!
Why should it be surprising that legal immigrants oppose illegal immigration?
Don’t step off the hacienda.
As usual, once they’ve lost the argument, the next page in the leftist playbook is bullying and intimidation.
...and so it begins, Trump’s promised inroads to the Hispanic-speaking community (as the GOPe call them). The key here isn’t to get all their votes, but to get enough votes so that they influence the election as a block (i.e., have them come close to splitting their votes).
40% would be outstanding, 35% would be very good, and 30% will be good enough. Romney wound up with 27%, but the difference is that Trump will get a FAR HIGHER percentage of the White vote, as he’s the first candidate in a generation that is actually targeting WHITE VOTERS...so he needed a decent showing (relatively speaking) with minorities, and it will be a 360 EV LANDSLIDE.
Interesting how the only candidate truly independent of the GOPe was able to figure this out...
Americans who happen to be Hispanic will stand with Trump and be proud of being Americans who care about the United States. They want borders to our country just like the rest of us. They ARE the ‘rest of us’... we’re Americans.
Illegals give them a bad name...
Illegals hate Trump because Trump wants to send them home. As he should.
I suspect criminals hate Trump too...
There have always been plenty of Hispanic conservatives and plenty support Trump. It just goes unreported because it doesn’t fit the narrative
