    Former Border Town Police Chief: ĎIím Proud To Be Hispanic And Iím 100 Percent Behind

    Former Border Town Police Chief: ĎIím Proud To Be Hispanic And Iím 100 Percent Behind Donald Trumpí

    June 2, 2016

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) ó Despite Donald Trumpís controversial comments about immigration, there are some Hispanic-Americans along the Texas-Mexico border who back the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

    ďIím a former chief of police in a border town. Iím Hispanic, Iím proud to be Hispanic and Iím 100 percent behind Donald Trump for his candidacy to the White House,Ē Tony Castaneda, who is the grandson of Mexican immigrants, told CBS News.

    Castaneda stated that he wasnít offended by Trumpís comments that Mexican immigrants coming to the United States illegally were bringing drugs, crime and are rapists.

    ďHeís very blunt. Iím blunt too. Maybe thatís why I like some of his positions, because heís not a side shooter. You know, he talks directly, directly to the point,Ē Castaneda explained to CBS News. ďMaybe that needs to be polished up a bit to be politically correct, but I donít think he wants to be politically correct. Weíre tired of politically correct people occupying the White House and occupying positions of government that represent us. We donít want to hear the politically correct response. We want to hear the truth.Ē

    Castaneda referred to Trump as ďmy amigoĒ because he wants to put a plan in place ďthat will be legally followed by those people who want to become residents.Ē

    ďI live right on the border, so I am familiar with undocumented people coming through the backyard of my house and I am familiar with narcotic traffickers dumping dope next to my house and I participated in the arrest of these people,Ē Castaneda said. ďSo I want a good defense along the border, too, so I can live in comfort and I can live in peace just like everybody else in this country.Ē

    Miriam Cepeda, who lives in the border town of McAllen, Texas, is a 24-year-old Trump supporter. She told CBS News she wants to see her family members who came to the U.S. illegally deported back to Mexico.

    ďPeople need to wake up and realize that the illegal immigrants that are here, that have no other form of self-employment, do turn to drugs, do turn to the cartel business, do turn to illegal immigration,Ē Cepeda said. ďAnd Iím saying this because I have family members that are involved in this stuff, and they are in the state jail at this moment, and I would love nothing better but for them to be deported.Ē

    She added, ďHopefully with Donald Trump being the next president, we can secure our borders. He is the only one who is actively engaging in the conversation about illegal immigration.Ē

    Hector Garza, a U.S. Border Patrol agent whose parents immigrated legally from Mexico, said Trump cares about what happens at the border.

    ďI did meet with Mr. Trump. I did feel that Mr. Trump was really concerned about the border, and him coming down to Laredo and accepting our invitation, I think thatís an indication that he really does care what happens on the border,Ē Garza told CBS News.

    Garza also slammed the cutbacks to the agencyís budget.

    ďIn this yearís budget, President Obama called for 300 less BP agents, along the border, and at this point, we do not need less BP agents, we need more,Ē Garza told CBS News.

    Trump has pledged that Mexico will pay to build a wall along the border.

    A recent Quinnipiac University poll found that Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton holds a slight lead nationally over Trump Ė 45 to 41 percent.

    “People need to wake up and realize that the illegal immigrants that are here, that have no other form of self-employment, do turn to drugs, do turn to the cartel business, do turn to illegal immigration,” Cepeda said. “And I’m saying this because I have family members that are involved in this stuff, and they are in the state jail at this moment, and I would love nothing better but for them to be deported.”
    This says a lot. There is so much Americans (regardless of their heritage) don't realize about illegal immigration. Thank you citizens that live on the border for enlightening the rest of us on the course for some when things don't work out. When the Hispanics can understand the difference between following US immigration law and not marrying it to disliking Hispanics, we can then have a real conversation about illegal immigration. It is not just Hispanics!

    The conversation needs to change to Hispanics are liked and should actually embrace immigration law before unjustly defending an illegal Hispanic (devotion to America). Those immigrants who are not here legally and happen to be Hispanic or whatever nationality, many Americans want them to leave (deportation) regardless of heritage. They don't dislike the heritage or nationality, they dislike the illegal status of the person period.

    EXACTLY.

    Americans must unite together to defend our nation and citizens from illegal immigration. It's not about race, ethnicity, heritage, nationality or anything related thereto. It's only about the illegal status like joe s stated, invading our nation without permission, and then once here stealing our jobs, undercutting our wages, burdening our resources and burning through our depleted coffers to sustain yourselves at the expense of the American Worker, American Citizen and American Taxpayer.

    It must end.
