<whispers>Stopping illegal immigration, and “fully funding the police so our communities are not threatened by people who refuse to follow our laws” are not “dog-whistles,” but good policies supported by large majorities of all races. pic.twitter.com/9XEo1mTHMy— tedfrank 😷 (@tedfrank) September 18, 2020
Why is it surprising that Latinos would find a law and order message to be convincing? They immigrated from a place because it a) lacked economic opportunity, and b) it was dangerous. Also, most of these Latinos followed rules and regulations and waited in line for years to finally arrive in the US. They won't have much sympathy for the criminal assholes who jumped the border in a few minutes, pay zero taxes, and lower everyone's wages.
