Conservative Latinos threaten Trump, GOP over immigration

A group of conservative Latinos from “two dozen top Hispanic conservative groups” held a press conference in Boulder, Colo. yesterday ahead of tonight’s GOP debate in order to warn the candidates that if they adopt Donald Trump-esqe immigration policies, then “don’t expect us to come to your side during the general election.”

Rosario Martin — former U.S. Treasurer under GWB — spoke at the news conferenceand issued this threat:

“Heed our warning. Don’t expect us to come to your side during the general election. You are not with us now? We will not be with you then. You do not need our vote now? You won’t have it then. You insult us now? We will be deaf to you then? You take us for granted? We will not recognize you then.”

And the group specifically ruled out a Trump endorsement:

Mario Lopez of the Hispanic Leadership Fundechoed the anti-Trump sentiment and told MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart this morning that although “Donald Trump was the main concern,” it is a warning to all the candidates.
