GOP Hispanics to Trump: “You’re Ignorant”

Yesterday, a group of leading GOP Hispanics penned an open letter to the new GOP front runner for the 2016 presidential nomination. The letter, published on Fox News Latino, calls the controversial candidate “divisive and ignorant” and goes on to make a strong case.

Make no mistake; there is room for a real and honest conversation about how to fix our broken immigration system. But there is no place for the kind of divisive, demeaning, and misguided rhetoric you’ve been using for the past month. Your comments continue to not only demonstrate your own ignorance on the issue but a failure to recognize the vast contributions immigrants and Hispanics make day in and day out.

The latest poll has Trump ahead of Jeb Bush, though he still trails in the RCP average. The signers of the letter are:

The Hon. Ruben Barrales, CEO GROWTH, California

The Hon. Hector Barreto, Former SBA Administration and President of Hispanic Business Roundtable, DC.

The Hon. Jovita Carranza, CEO JCR Group.  Former Deputy Administrator, SBA, Illinois

Joseph Galvan, Principal Galvan & Associates LLC., former HUD Midwest Regional Director, Illinois

The Hon. Abel Maldonado 47th Lt. Governor California

The Hon. Rosario Marin, Former US Treasurer, CEO Marin & Marin LLC, California

Jerry Natividad, President CEO American Facilities Services Corp. Colorado

Jose Nino, Former President /CEO of the USHCC, Maryland

Mario Rodriguez, Chairman Hispanic 100, California

The Hon. Theresa Speake, Former Assistant Secretary Dept. of Energy, Virginia

Massey Villarreal, Former National Chairman Republican National Hispanic Assembly, Texas
