I Am Mexican. I Am Conservative. Trump Has A Point On Immigration

Kimber

Back in June when President Trump pointed out that Judge Gonzalo Curiel may be biased against him given his Mexican heritage, everyone collectively shrieked RACIST. When asked what my opinion was, as a Mexican myself, I asked people to put themselves in the judge’s position.

Imagine him at a family gathering, looking into the eyes of all those who have been convinced by a rather effective leftist media that Trump (aka Orange Hitler) hates them, and wants them dead. Now imagine him telling his family and friends that they’re all wrong, which is why he didn’t “get him” while he had the chance, because his job is to uphold the law. They feel betrayed. His relationships might never be the same again.

It’s easy to say you’re above all of this. It’s easy to say you’d always do the right thing. It’s easy to say that you would never succumb to any sort of bias, that as the Judge you would always rule objectively, and as his family, you would respect that he was simply upholding the law. But you’re only human, and I don’t believe you.

I knew Trump had a point back then, and now, more than ever, I understand he was correct in his concerns.
