Why a Trump win would be a loss for Mexicans in the U.S.

Trump has dominated every headline with his flamboyance and his extreme platform for the country’s future, especially around immigration. Trump says he would deport over 11 million undocumented immigrants and repeal part of the 14th amendment, which allows birthright citizenship to children of undocumented immigrants. How are Latinos responding to the  outrageous Trump platform? “I thought we as a nation had progressed in terms of racism and xenophobia, but it is clear [by Trump’s popularity] we haven’t.” An opinion column by youth reporter Daniela Alvarez, on Voicewaves.
