Trump Hispanic Advisory Council Members Revoke Support

Three members of Donald Trump’s Hispanic Advisory Council have revoked their support for the Republican presidential nominee in the wake of his Wednesday evening speech on immigration reform, in which he seemingly shifted back to a hardline anti-immigrant stance. “I was a strong supporter of Donald Trump when I believed he was going to address the immigration problem realistically and compassionately,” said Jacob Monty, a Houston-based lawyer. “What I heard today was not realistic and not compassionate.” Ramiro Pena, a Texas pastor, emailed Trump advisers and Republican National Committee staffers saying he believes Trump “lost the election” after the Phoenix speech. Alfonso Aguilar, the president of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, said he feels “misled” by Trump and officially withdrew his support from the GOP candidate Thursday morning in a CNN interview.
