The Foreign Relations Commission of the Chamber of Deputies is worried about Donald Trump’s constant advances in the past few days.
National Action Party (PAN) deputy, Arlette Muñoz, asked other Mexican representatives to firmly denounce the republican candidate’s statements, because they represent a direct threat to the 34 million Mexicans living the United States.
The fact that such a significant population of the United States identifies with Trump’s radical stance on racial segregation is what is worrisome, the PAN deputy said.
“Donald Trump’s constant advances toward the presidency worries us, because his hateful comments toward Mexican immigrants aren’t just a threat for our compatriots abroad, but also an insult to the diplomatic relations in our country,” Muñoz said.
The PAN member said that the republican candidate is forgetting about the enormous contributions that Mexicans living in the U.S. make. Mexicans contribute more than $485 million to the U.S. economy annually, which represents 3.7 percent of the gross domestic product.
“The work of our compatriots in the United States represents an economic pillar, and unfortunately, the republican candidate is only saying what a certain sector of the U.S. population wants to hear,” concluded Muñoz.
Arlette Muñoz also posted about Trump on her Twitter page:
