Univision Anchor: Trump Wants to Keep America White

"The measures to limit legal immigration proposed by the Trump Administration have the purpose of...limiting the growth of...the Hispanic population."

You know what Donald Trump -- who mentored major black entrepreneur Russell Simmons and wrote the foreword to Simmons's autobiography -- wants? To keep America white. That, according to anchor Enrique Acevedo of Univision, the preferred network of millions of illegal aliens.

As stated by Acevedo, Wednesday night during the Edicion Nocturna newscast:

"The measures to limit legal immigration to the United States proposed by the Trump Administration have the purpose of preserving the nation's current demographic composition and limiting the growth of the so-called minorities, mainly, the Hispanic population. Pablo Gato will tell us (about) those details."

"So-called?" Hispanics are a minority in the United States. Also, note that Acevedo didn't say that limiting immigration has a racial effect; he clearly indicated that it is being done for a racial purpose.

Washington correspondent Gato cited a Washington Post article to support the claim:

"President Trump's proposal to cut legal immigration rates would delay the date that white Americans become a minority of the population by as few as one or as many as five additional years.

"The Census Bureau projects that minority groups will outnumber non-Hispanic whites in the United States in 2044. The Post's analysis projects that, were Trump's plan to be carried out, the date would be between 2045 and 2049, depending on how parts of it are implemented."

But as Newsbusters indicates:

"For all the fearmongering about the Hispanic population, it is no secret that Hispanic population growth in the United States is no longer primarily driven by immigration, but by U.S. births. The real problem is that these kids don't grow up to be Univision viewers."

Unsurprisingly, soundbites for Gato's report, clearly meant to scare Hispanics into thinking Trump is on track to "Make America White Again," were compliments of an immigration lawyer and Democratic strategist, with no opposing rebuttal given. 

Univision's survival depends on Hispanics -- largely those from Mexico -- who rely on Spanish-speaking content. To maintain that status quo, Univision needs to push an us-versus-them narrative. The truth becomes collateral damage.
