Washington, DC – Today, GOP leading presidential candidate Donald Trump released his plan to make Mexico pay for a border wall by threatening to stop remittances from the U.S. to Mexico unless Mexico makes a one time payment of $5-$10 billion dollars.
 
The following is a reaction from Cristóbal Alex, President of Latino Victory Fund:
 
“Trump’s plan to make Mexico pay for the border wall by threatening to stop remittances from the U.S. to Mexico is a very dangerous and unrealistic proposal. This is nothing but another nonsensical attack against immigrants that would have devastating consequences for Latinos and Americans overall, endangering our economy, our democracy, our foreign policy and security. 
 
“Mexico is our third largest trading partner in the world, as well as an ally and friend of the United States. Trump’s proposal shows a lack of understanding of overall policy, and further reinforces the fact that a Donald Trump presidency would be devastating for the United States. It’s time for the Republican Party to put country over party and Dump Trump.”
