Following presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump’s racist attacks on U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel,
a Hispanic House Democrat representing a Texas district bordering Mexico, had some choice words for the bombastic candidate.
Since Trump is against political correctness, he should have no problem (wink wink) with Rep. Filemon Vela’s open letter to him, in particular the part about the second-term Democrat wanting the GOP front-runner to shove the border wall up his ass.
“Mr. Trump, you’re a racist and you can take your border wall and shove it up your ass,” Vela wrote.
The Hill reports:
Vela began the letter noting that he agrees with Trump that Mexico should do more to deter violence from drug cartels and that felons in the U.S. illegally should be deported. But he then moved to excoriate the real estate mogul over his rhetoric about Hispanics, including Trump’s assertion that an American-born federal judge of Mexican descent wouldn’t be impartial in a lawsuit against Trump University.
“Your ignorant anti-immigrant opinions, your border wall rhetoric, and your recent bigoted attack on an American jurist are just plain despicable,” Vela wrote.
“Your position with respect to the millions of undocumented Mexican workers who now live in this country is hateful, dehumanizing, and frankly shameful,” he continued.
Vela acknowledged his own Mexican roots while noting that his family immigrated to the U.S. before Trump’s grandfather did from Germany.
“Before you dismiss me as just another ‘Mexican,’ let me point out that my great-great grandfather came to this country in 1857, well before your own grandfather. His grandchildren (my grandfather and his brothers) all served our country in World War I and World War II. His great-grandson, my father, served in the U.S. Army and, coincidentally, was one of the first ‘Mexican’ federal judges ever appointed to the federal bench,” Vela wrote.
Curiel was born in Indiana and as a federal protector, he battled Mexican drug cartels. Curiel is the son of a Salvadoran immigrant who arrived in the U.S. in the 1920s, while Trump’s mother arrived in America from Scotland in the 1930s and didn’t become a U.S. citizen until 1942.
GOP leaders are fleeing from the party’s own front-runner following his attacks on the judge. Trump has admitted that he feels that a Muslim judge would be biased against him, too, in presiding over the Trump University lawsuit.
So yes, GOP, your boy is a racist.
