Navarro Comments On Immigration Debate

May 24, 2024

Hey everyone, let’s talk about some fiery comments from CNN political commentator Ana Navarro that have stirred up quite a debate. On Friday, Navarro appeared on CNN’s “Newsroom” with host Jim Acosta, where she had some strong words for anti-immigration Latinos who support former President Donald Trump, calling their stance a “very stupid attitude.”

During the segment, Acosta highlighted a perplexing trend in recent poll numbers showing Trump gaining traction among Latino and African-American voters. He asked Navarro what she made of this apparent disconnect, especially given Trump’s controversial rhetoric on immigration.

Navarro didn’t hold back. She pointed out that some Latino immigrants forget their own roots and adopt an anti-immigrant stance in an attempt to assimilate or appear more American. “This is the truth, and you and I know this, as Latinos, there are some Latino immigrants who forget they came here as immigrants and who want to shut the door behind them,” she said. “And who think being anti-immigrant somehow is going to make them pass as more American, pass as whatever. And that’s a very stupid attitude to have.”

Navarro’s comments go beyond just pointing out hypocrisy. She touched on a deeper issue of identity and perception within the Latino community. She warned that anti-immigrant sentiments don’t discriminate based on the specifics of one’s immigrant journey. “What folks don’t realize is that when the guy drives thousands of miles to go hunt down Latinos in a Walmart in Texas, he doesn’t care when you came here, he doesn’t care what your accent is,” Navarro explained. “What he’s looking for is, ‘Does it look like me? Does it sound like me?’ That is what he’s looking for. So when people are anti-something, they’re not asking for your papers. They’re just anti that group.”

Navarro’s passionate remarks underscore a significant and often controversial conversation about the complexities of immigration, assimilation, and identity within minority communities. Her critique sheds light on the internal conflicts and external perceptions that shape political attitudes and behaviors.

As Trump continues to gain support among demographics traditionally seen as leaning Democratic, this discussion about the motivations and perceptions of his supporters becomes even more critical. Navarro’s comments are a stark reminder that the elities are beginning to crack and they have no idea what to do next except whine.
