Latino Obama Voter Switched to Trump Over Immigration

CNN, in one of those occasional media travel pieces, decided to interview people outside the New York, Washington D.C., LA, San Fran and Boston echo chambers to see what they think about Trump.

The result is another reminder of how different the reality is on the ground.

Jorge Rojas has managed his wife’s dental practice in McAllen, Texas since 1989, and has lived on the US-Mexico border his whole life. He voted for President Obama his first term, but then switched gears to support Mitt Romney in 2012 and now fully supports President Trump.

His main reason for jumping to the GOP was to “see change here at the border with immigration policies that work,” he says.

“Being here in ‘The Valley’ and seeing the suffering firsthand has been a huge turnoff for me,” he says.

He has taken annual mission trips to Central America since 2001 and has seen how rough life is for children and families in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. Even so, he wants to see a secure border where people come legally, not across the Rio Grande.

Rojas believes that President Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy is finally a path to help secure the border, and he hopes that the border wall that President Trump promised will be next.

There are other voices like Rojas in the piece.
