Danny Trejo Teams With Jon Stewart To Expose The Dangers Of Latinos In Texas

danny-trejo-jon-stewartImmigration is one topic that’s almost guaranteed to spark a fairly intense debate. And while I definitely have my views on how we should handle both legal and illegal immigration, the issue itself is not as simple as some try to make it out to be. Many people on the left believe that we should just have open borders, accepting anyone and everyone who wants to come here. Meanwhile, many on the right think that we should build some giant wall along the U.S./Mexico border while hunting down and deporting over 12 million undocumented immigrants.


But like with most things in life, the real solutions are usually found somewhere in the middle.

Needless to say, from the far-right there’s a plethora of anti-immigration rhetoric that’s constantly being pushed by the Republican party. While they claim it’s all about “abiding by our laws” and “protecting our borders,” it’s clear that a lot of these anti-immigrant talking points are fueled by racism.

Well, if you’ve been watching The Daily Show this past week, you know that Jon Stewart has been broadcasting from Austin, Texas. And during his time in the Lone Star State he’s taken up addressing some of the issues that seem important to Texans. Last night he decided to cover the always popular topic in the state of what to do about those darn Mexican immigrants.

The big issue of this segment was a claim by a local law enforcement official who said that illegal immigrants are coming over here and getting free computers, cars and all sorts of government goodies to which, as he claims, only illegal immigrants are privy.

Following this claim, they showed a clip mocking the “horrors” of what Mexican immigrants want to do to the United States – starring none other than Danny Trejo.

While I suggest everyone take a few moments to watch this hilarious skit, I will say that it brilliantly hammers the over the top fear mongering often pushed by many of these anti-immigrant individuals by showing Trejo doing “terrifying” things such as:

  • Bringing home takeout from Boston Market
  • Hitting ground balls to neighborhood kids
  • Grilling
  • Making salsa
  • Jogging

With a tagline to the video: Latinos: Watch out, because they’re not leaving until they get what they came for – a life as boring as yours.


The fact that it stars Danny Trejo makes it even more hilarious.

And while it’s clearly a “fluff” video meant to make people laugh rather than actually address immigration with any real substance, it does do a great job at mocking the ridiculousness often pushed by some of these anti-immigrant individuals.

        Democrats running for Senate won’t even admit out loud that they voted for him.

        I dont see a single Obama/ Biden 2004 or 2008 anymore..havent for a year or more.. I do see a lot of black glue residue where they used to be though.

      So I guess you are privy to the Presidents future plans? Do you know what color suit he is planning on wearing tomorrow? Curious minds want to know!

      • Marilyn Olsen Scheffler

        Isn’t it just amazing how much people “know” for sure? The fact that they heard it from aunt Suzy who heard it on Fox news has nothing to do with it! Let’s keep in touch with “Macdoodle” so we can be as knowledgable about the future of our country has “he or she” is.

      • Tristan Chris Heiss

        You dont need to be ‘privy to someone’ who is repeating communist history.

    • Hunter Rose

      Well, when Reagan gave amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in 1986, a Republican became president when he left office.
      So you must be right!

    I remember speaking, here in California, with a white, right-wing, Christian, Tea Party woman who was born in Canada. She said that Mexicans who weren’t here legally should all be deported, “because they are breaking our laws.” A little later, she mentioned that she couldn’t go home to visit family in Canada because her student visa had expired decades earlier and she wouldn’t be able to get back into the US. She was just as illegal an immigrant as any Mexican, but because she was white, her condemnation of them didn’t apply to herself. Don’t think for a MOMENT the immigrant debate isn’t racist at its black heart.

      Sounds like Ted Cruz.

      More empirical evidence please.

    Funny, when I go back to Connecticut (where I grew up) from my home in Nevada it’s like visiting apartheid South Africa. Blacks and Latinos live in squalor in Bridgeport, New Haven, and Hartford, while white liberals live in large homes away from the brown people they claim to care about.

    • Tristan Chris Heiss

      and the democrats own every single ghetto in the USA..and you find that funny? I find it sick. at least in Chicago the Black Americans are revolting against their African American leaders… got tired of 50 years of lies and more poverty. HOOAH!

  • el’guapo

    US should just take over Mexico problem solved, actually it should go further to the United States of the Western Hemisphere!

  • T Gentry

    Maybe next time they might want to use someone who hasn’t served multiple prison sentences to make their point.

    • Tristan Chris Heiss

      racist

SEEING AS HOW ITS A MARXIST CREATION ,USED SUCCESSFULLY BY EVERY TYRANNICAL DICTATOR INCLUDING OBAMA FOR THE LAST HUNDRED YEARS .
