“My culture is a very dominant culture. It’s imposing and it’s causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.” — Marco Gutierrez, Latinos for Trump.
Marco Gutierrez’s parents were among the unauthorized immigrants who received amnesty in 1986 during the Reagan administration.
Phillip Bump of the Washington Post ran the numbers for one taco truck at each intersection in the USA. 3.2 million taco trucks x 3 employees per truck = 9.6 million new taco truck jobs, and a need for more mechanics, gas station workers and mechanics, agricultural, food supplier and warehouse workers, and food truck management services. An estimate puts the total employment figure at 63 million new jobs. “We’d likely need to increase immigration levels just to meet the demand.”
“And the tacos are made in America”, observes Steve Lopez of the LA Times, “unlike some of the clothing sold under Trump’s name.”
In Denver, Democrats have parked a taco truck outside a Trump campaign office. The truck serves tacos, burritos, and voter registration forms.
