GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump, to his great credit, is running an English-only campaign—which means no ads in Spanish and no website en español.
But Hillary of course is not, and the Spanish section of her website is quite telling what she wants to emphasize to Spanish-speaking voters about her immigration policies.
When you enter the Spanish section, there is a video featuring Mexican-U.S. dual citizen actress Salma Hayek. (Right.)It’s entitled Podemos demostrar que somos una comunidad poderos—“We can demonstrate that we are a powerful community.”
To all Latinos in the United States of America:A “powerful community”, eh? Triumphalist— the language of conquerors.
We cannot allow them to insult and abuse us anymore.
The Latino vote is extremely important.
We can prove that we are a mighty community.
Also, those of us who can vote owe it to the undocumented immigrants who don’t have a voice.
We have to vote. Votemos por Hillary Clinton.
And who is this “we’? In 2004, Salma Hayek took an oath of allegiance to “absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen” in order to become an American citizen.
But of course she didn’t mean it. After all, she openly said wanted citizenship to “have a voice that supports the Latino community in the United States” and intended to “maintain both citizenships to help the Latinos.”
Becoming an American was just a means to her end of helping her ethnic tribe.
Then there’s an article entitled La intolerancia de Donald Trump ha hecho este Mes de Herencia Hispana más importante—“The intolerance of Donald Trump has made this Hispanic Heritage month more important.” [By Paola Luisi, Hillary Clinton.com, September 15, 2016]
Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15 to October 15. September 15 as the starting date because a number of Latin American countries have their Independence Day celebrations then. Why should foreign independence celebrations be the determining factor for an American “month?” It was originally “Hispanic Heritage Week” during the Johnson Administration and was expanded to Hispanic Heritage Month in 1989 in the Bush Administration.
Given current trends—and perhaps Hillary’s election—eventually the whole year will be Hispanic Heritage Year.
Recently, a mother in Florida wrote to Hillary Clinton about her son Francisco, age 11. Francisco likes to say that he is a mixture of Hispanic heritage since he has American, Ecuadorian and Puerto Rican ancestry.Of course, 11-year old Francisco is presumed to be in imminent danger of being bullied by intolerant Trumpsters, although there are plenty of examples of Trump supporters being attacked.
Francisco wears his “Love Trumps Hate” pin every day, and refuses to remove it. Even when his father warns that he could be the object of bullying, Francisco says ‘they always taught me that I should defend myself and my beliefs, and I think that Trump is wrong.’
Next Luisa about Hispanic Heritage Month.
Today is the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month and the stories such as those of Francisco remind us of the importance of defending and celebrating our rich culture and diversity.Luisa claims this has been an “election defined by intolerance, and verbal abuse and Taco Bowls” and accuses Trump of beginning his campaign by suggesting [some!] Mexican immigrants are rapists and drug dealers. Why is this offensive, if you’re not a rapist or drug dealer?
…whether you are a Puerto Rican, a first generation immigrant or if your family has been here since before the United States were considered the United States- The Hispanics and Latinos have doubtless made uncountable contributions to our country.
Luisa also cites Trump’s criticism of Judge Curiel, without mentioning that Curiel is a member of the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association. Not that Hillary’s campaign would object—but the La Raza ideology has no place in American jurisprudence.
Then there’s DREAMer college student Astrid Silva and the “Build the Wall “ chant at Trump rallies, with the latter apparently being a bad thing. Hispanic Heritage Month is proclaimed as “an opportunity to confront the racist attacks of Donald Trump” Conclusion: the exhortation: “And on the 8th of November, let us show that Francisco is right”.
Next to that article is [Trump no está “suavizando” sus políticas migratorias. Aquí está la evidencia. By Samy Nemir, Hillary campaign site, September 3, 2016]. That translates to “Trump is not ‘softening’ his migratory policies. Here is the evidence. “ (It’s also available in English)
At the bottom of the Spanish language version, there’s a link to the ominous-sounding 4 cosas del plan migratorio de Donald Trump que son tan preocupantes como su “gran y bella muralla.” [by Elizabeth Chan, Hillary Clinton website, September 1, 2016]. That translates to “Four Things about Donald Trump’s Migratory Plan that are as worrisome as his “big and beautiful wall.”
Well, the’re actually five things (my translation):
And, as for #4, is the Hillary campaign pledging to bring in all the Muslims of the world? All 1.5 billion of them? Well, recall Angela Merkel is Hillary’s heroine.
At the bottom of that article is link to 9 cosas que todos los votantes deben saber de Donald Trump (“Nine Things all voters should know about Donald Trump”) [by Elizabeth Chan y Paola Luisi, HillaryClinton.com, July 12, 2016 ]
The first one is that Trump said that “Mexican immigrants” (but Trump was referring to illegal aliens) were bringing drugs, crimes and were rapists. And the second was the Muslim thing. Same old, same old.
Getting back to the main page of the Spanish section, scroll to the bottom for the obligatory article on Reforma migratoria integral which means “comprehensive immigration reform”. By “reform,” of course, they mean Amnesty, the path to citizenship, access to healthcare for “families, regardless of migratory status” and naturalization.
That’s what Hillary is presenting to her Spanish-speaking readers. And these are her plans.
And guess which party she expects all these Amnestied illegal aliens to vote for in the decades to come.
She’s abolishing America. How much more treasonous can you get?
As Donald Trump said in West Palm Beach:
This is our moment of reckoning as a society and as a civilization itself.American citizen Allan Wall (email him) moved back to the U.S.A. in 2008 after many years residing in Mexico. Allan's wife is Mexican, and their two sons are bilingual. In 2005, Allan served a tour of duty in Iraq with the Texas Army National Guard.
