GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump's much-talked about visit to Mexico on Wednesday and his speech on U.S. immigration that followed apparently left out one important consequence should immigration continue: an invasion of taco trucks. Latinos for Trump founder Marco Gutierrez warned about the impending doom of "taco trucks on every corner." But what about Trump-approved taco bowls?
Marco Gutierrez, who it should be noted is Mexican himself, made the remark on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes” Thursday. “My culture is a very dominant culture,” Gutierrez said. “It’s imposing and it’s causing problems. If you don’t do something about it you’re gonna [sic] have taco trucks [on] every corner.”
Twitter didn’t seem to agree with Gutierrez’s apocalyptic premonition and let him know the possibility of having tacos everywhere wouldn't be as bad as he thinks.
Trump, who has a documented history with Mexico, including calling Mexican immigrants to the U.S. “rapists” and “drug dealers,” visited the country yesterday. His trip was made possible after being invited by Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto. Trump’s trip was highlighted by the trending Twitter hashtag #TrumpMexicoTripSayings.
After saying he’d be open to a “softer” immigration policy, despite previously promising a policy as impenetrable as the proposed border wall, Trump said he’d create an immigration task force in a speech yesterday. Trump also reiterated plans for the wall he plans on building, but that Mexico will reportedly pay for. But just hours prior to Trump’s statement, Peña Nieto publicly said that wouldn’t be happening.
