The founder of the group “Latinos for Trump” made an unconventional argument for Donald Trump’s immigration plan during an appearance on MSNBC Thursday night.
Marco Gutierrez, in an interview with host Joy Reid, described Latino culture as “imposing” and “dominant,” and suggested that without the GOP presidential nominee’s 10-point plan to overhaul the United States’ immigration policies, there might be “taco trucks on every corner.”
“I don’t even know what that means, and I’m almost too afraid to ask,” Reid responded.
Gutierrez continued, “We have a lot of good things that we bring to the United States, but we also have a lot problems.” He did not explain what the “taco trucks” comment had to do with the larger discussion about illegal immigration.

Trump’s rhetoric on immigration has taken a life of its own in the last couple of weeks, as the real-estate mogul’s campaign sought a narrative that would please both his base of supporters and the GOP establishment at large. The reception has been mixed.
The Republican presidential candidate took a trip to Mexico on Wednesday, ostensibly to show that he is willing to create a dialogue on his policies from both sides of the border, but he continues to face scrutiny on the matter.
