NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump laid out his immigration policy last weekend: build a border wall paid for by Mexico, deport all of the 11 Million undocumented immigrants now in the U.S., and amend the constitution to re-define birthright citizenship.
Today, Trump fired one of his employees, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico whom he employed at the Trump Soho building in New York. Trump knew this employee was undocumented, but he fired him not because he didn’t have work authorization but because this young man caused him some big-time embarrassment.
Ricardo Aca, from Pueblo, Mexico, works in the restaurant at the Trump Soho building. He works very hard while still living with his family in Brooklyn, and fully asserts that he is NOT a murderer, drug dealer, or rapist. And as far as the Republican adage that “Mexicans are lazy,” Aca works three jobs, while his step father works two jobs. They work hard to try to get ahead and have a better life.
Aca has also gone to college and earned his associate’s degree in commercial photography, and is now using his skill to show everyone what immigrants are really like. He is proud to be Mexican, and he is proud of the work he has done.
Trump is very worried that he has just lost his credibility as an anti-immigrant candidate for president with Aca coming out as an undocumented Trump employee.
