And for what?
Because of Donald Trump’s recent controversial statement about immigrants coming to the United States, which was completely accurate?

As I wrote the other day, Trump’s facts are true.
First of all, let’s dissect Mr. Trumps very words.
When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us.
In Trump’s own words he states that Mexico is sending immigrants across the border with “lots of problems.”
I would assume that these problems Trump talks about are economic in nature, as well as health oriented problems. An ABC affiliate in Arizona reported that U.S. Border Patrol agents are seeing real cases of chicken pox, MRSA staph infections, scabies, and other infectious diseases, including “different viruses,” that have been found among the illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.
The Department of Homeland Security has even issued protective guidelines for their medics and border agents to follow.

Trump then made the comment that “killers” and “rapists” were also crossing over.
They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably— probably— from the Middle East. But we don’t know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence, we don’t know what’s happening. And it’s got to stop and it’s got to stop fast.
He did not specifically say that every single person entering the U.S. from Mexico was “bad.” Trump should have probably said that the majority of illegal immigrants crossing the southern U.S. border were “good people.”
I will assume that when Trump said “they’re bringing” he is referring to the Mexican government, corrupt military personnel, drug cartels, and human traffickers, who work alongside these cartels.
The “killers” Trump is referring to are the Mexican drug traffickers, whose deadly drug war has spilled over in the U.S., and the murderous El Salvador-base MS-13, as well as other Latino street gangs that help bring drugs across the border.
The crimes committed against Americans along the southern U.S. border and in American cities by illegal immigrants has been well documented.
The federal government has even admitted to releasing thousands of criminal illegal immigrants, who have committed crimes like rape and murder.
In 2013, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials freed 193 people who had been convicted of homicide, 426 of sexual assault, 303 of kidnapping and more than 16,000 with drunken-driving records.-USA Today
Colombia, the country where my parents originated from, and where the bulk of the cocaine from South America is processed and funneled through, should embrace Trump’s statement as truth, considering that Colombia ground zero for the cocaine trade, and home of the most powerful and deadly cocaine-trafficking entities, FARC.
Do I need remind Colombians of who Pablo Escobar was, and remind Mexicans about their country’s booming sex trade, and raging drug war that has killed thousands of fellow countrymen over the past several years?
As Trump said, Mexico is allowing for drugs and crime, as well as rapists to be brought into the country.
It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably— probably— from the Middle East.-Donald Trump
Miss Colombia, and Miss Mexico should all take a step back, take a deep breath, take their crowns of ignorance off of their pretty little heads, and accept that fact that their respective countries are two of the most violent, and anti-Hispanic nations in the Western Hemisphere.
Yes, the drug trafficking and acts of violence that Colombia and Mexico have allowed to be committed against their own people over the years, are anti-Hispanic acts, and are far worse than a few words mouthed by Donald Trump.
Hispanics immigrants and those living outside of the U.S., who have taken offense to Donald Trump statement, should take a deep look the mirror, and come to terms with the reality that there is a real criminal element resonating from within their respective countries, or countries of origin.
