Yes, Latino Republicans DO Exist… and They’re Politically Active

Believe it or not, there is such a thing as a Latino Republican. There are even some conservative celebrities blending in with the “Hollywood liberals.” After all, there is a reason that Donald Trump made his way to Los Angeles in July to talk to the Friends of Abe, a conservative group for the entertainment industry. Here are some familiar names that are supporting the GOP.

The comedian and actor made the change from Democrat to Republican and made a speech to explain his decision. Rodriguez even became the voice for Mitt Romney’s 2012 Nuestro Futuro ad. The comedian also made statements against undocumented immigrants in 2014:

“Let us say we allow these 7,000 children to stay here and grow up American and go to our schools,” Rodriguez said. “What do we say to the 60,000 that are going to follow them? And the 150,000 that will follow? Can we house them all? Do we have the whereabouts? We can’t even take care of our own kids here now.”

Erik Estrada, Actor
