It’s always a pleasure to spend a little time in the Grand Canyon State. It’s even better when I get to spend it in the company of people as talented and dedicated as those working with Latinos for Trump.

Democrats are convinced they can win here next year with a doddering mediocrity like Joe Biden or a radical leftist such as Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders. All these imaginary paths to victory in Arizona depend on a big Hispanic turnout for the Democrats, and that’s just not going to happen.

What is it about Joe Biden or Elizabeth Warren that Democrats think will appeal to the many Hispanic Arizonans who refused to vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016? More importantly, why do they think any of the impossible promises and insane policies on display from the Democratic debate stage will be more appealing than my father-in-law’s record of delivering broad-based prosperity?

The Trump economic boom has improved the lives of tens of millions of American families, but Hispanic Americans have done particularly well. Despite making up only about 18 percent of the U.S. population, Hispanics have filled more than 40 percent of the new jobs created over the past three years. Since President Trump took office, about 2.8 million of the 6.4 million new jobs created nationwide have gone to Hispanic workers.

That incredible job market brought Hispanic unemployment to a record low of 3.9 percent in September. It’s also helped to raise Hispanic median family income to an all-time high and slash the Hispanic poverty rate to an all-time low.

In the face of such historic achievements, Democrats can only resort to fear-mongering and stoking racial resentments, portraying border security and immigration enforcement as hostile to Hispanic interests. That entire strategy, however, is based on a false premise. Hispanic voters are American citizens, not illegal immigrants. Hispanics make up a majority of U.S. Border Patrol agents — a group that overwhelmingly supports the border wall — and benefit as much from safe communities and a well-regulated immigration system as any other American.

In Arizona, Hispanic-American voters are not going to be won over by empty pandering and cynical exploitation of tragedies. Residents of border states are not going to fall for Democrat talking points blaming our law enforcement officers for the inherent dangers of illegally crossing the American border. Arizonans know that brutal drug cartels and human traffickers must be stopped, and that the open-borders policies advocated by many Democratic candidates would increase suffering, not alleviate it.

I’m honored to be working with Latinos for Trump to spread a message of hope that can counter the Democrats’ rhetoric of fear. We’re going to celebrate the brilliant constitutional originalist judges President Trump has appointed to the federal bench, such as Rodolfo Ruiz and David Morales. We’re also going to explain how trade realism, low taxes, and deregulation are propelling Hispanic Americans all over the country into the middle class. Most of all, though, I relish the opportunity to counter the smears and lies Democrats are spreading in an attempt to scare Hispanic Arizonans into voting for them.

It’s going to be a long ride to victory next year, but here in Arizona, Latinos for Trump is going to come through again.

  1. You better be campaigning against Mr Kelly while you’re at it. These dumbasses in Southern AZ would vote him in simply because he’s married to the ‘Princess’. YUCK!!

  2. He also has the Native American/American Indian vote here in AZ. We look foreward to four more years with him. A vote for Pres. Trump is a vote for America first before any other Country.

  3. Thank you, I stand with you wonderful Americans who have respect and love for our country. I too will be supporting President Trump, you all are awesome, get the word out big time, we need everyone to stand up and save our country from these radical lefts that just want to tear down our American Constitutional way of life

  4. This story would have more credibility if it had been written by a Latino and not a rich white woman of Middle European ancestry who said accepting refugees from war-torn nations was Germany’s “downfall.”

    • Al – hahahahahaaaaa – what you want a victim? As a 1st born American of a Hispanic immigrant who became and American when I was 6 years of age – I say Via America! Count me in *(btw – used to be democrat ; I didn’t leave the party it left me ; Not a TRUMPER – but no WAY!!! I would have ever voted Clinton! – after seeing this COUP attempt by the democrats I would NEVER EVER Consider voting or becoming a democrat again.

    • So I guess that pretty well limits your credibility on almost everything.

      And Germany, it was and is.

    • Dear BS — In the late 1800s a major branch of the Republican Party called themselves “Radicals” while the Democrats were the party of slavery and segregation. The Radical Republicans wanted civil rights for former slaves, no compensation to slave owners, as the Dems wanted. and a a true “reconstruction” of the south. So, yes, Si Se Puede!

      • Al – having been an ARMY trooper in the Augusta Ga. Riots of the late 60’s it was not that long after Wallace (D) was closing bridges and schools… TO BLACKS – the D’s still don’t do much for the blacks. Look at the statistical changes with Trump in office, runs circles around the BlACK SECOND COMING of Obama… what a joke that was – and the nation is still suffering from the swamp created by those ‘globalists’ – Obama’s favorite read ; Post America World… he gave up – tossed in the towel to the Islamic’s with billions to the Iranians – where is your mind sir?
