8) Latino Trump supporters share why they like the candidate, despite a recent poll that showed only 21 percent of Latinos view him favorably. Marissa Desilets of Beverly Hills, California says, “I was born in Chicago. My grandparents were born in Mexico, and immigrated to the United States. I am a Hispanic conservative republican woman. I decided to support Donald J. Trump because I think America needs a better defense, and more jobs. With Trump as president, I can expect strong leadership, and the preservation of the Constitution of the United States of America.” Photo: Riverboom / INSTITUTE

9) Another Latino Trump supporter, Laura Diaz of  San Antonio says, “I was born in East L.A. I’m first generation of Mexican descent. I am a conservative that thinks for herself and does not vote based on the party-line stance. I decide to support Trump, because he is not a career politician and not funded by special interest groups. I appreciate his brutal candor and honesty – good, bad and the ugly. He may be extremely insensitive, but that does not render him a racist, bigot or misogynist. I like his experience in the private sector – with BOTH successes and failures. With Trump as a president I expect better National Security through a stronger immigration vetting system. I believe building the wall is totally unrealistic and I have always seen it as more of a metaphor for tough immigration reform. I would like to see my tax dollars used to invest in additional border patrol and technology that enables our resources to better secure our borders from not only drugs, but from terrorism as well.
