Latinos for Trump founder Marco Gutierrez appeared on MSNBC Thursday afternoon to discuss the GOP nominee’s latest immigration speech and while on-air, warned of a future with “taco trucks on every corner” due to the “dominant” and “imposing” Mexican culture, should the U.S. immigration system not change.
“We need to understand that this is different times. We have problems here. We need reform,” Gutierrez said to host Joy Reid.
When Reid asked him to clarify which “problems” he was referring to, the interview took a strange turn: “My culture is a dominant culture, and it’s imposing and it’s causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re gonna have taco trucks [on] every corner.”
Reid appeared stunned and the Twitter account for “All In With Chris Hayes” later tweeted a clip:

Twitter users jumped on the statement and began expressing their feelings about the idea of taco trucks on every corner. Most were pro-taco truck:

If #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

#TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner So taco bowls on every corner would be better?
