ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

When I first started, a man told me that the Latino vote

was much like the chupacabra.

And if anybody who's Mexican understands this,

it's like a phantom ghost or like a boogeyman.

It's always talked about in the culture, but never seen.

I think you're gonna get ready to see the chupacabra this year.

Just walk right down Main Street.

-What do we want? -Justice!

-And when do we want it? -Now!

Campaigns know that in 2020, we are going to be

the largest non-white voting bloc in this country,

and we have the ability to sway this election.

There's a misperception of Hispanics being Democrats.

But there's a young generation of young conservatives

trying to change that.

They're pro-life, they're pro-family

and they're experimenting on how to use their growing influence.

Four more years! Four more years!

Heavenly father,

we thank you for our president and his family.

I've been to the White House maybe over ten times.

I said, "If you break bread with the Hispanic community,

"you will find favor that way."

I just believe President Trump's gonna get four more years.

I love Hispanic.

This is the year to kick President Trump out!

The virus is really seriously impacting Latinos

and families are really suffering.

The risk is that people get so frustrated with government

that they choose not to participate.

We're doing everything we can to motivate people to vote

in the most important election of our lifetimes in November.

I don't think that you should talk about the Latino vote

without thinking about Afro-Latinos.

By overlooking that, we miss an accurate understanding

of what the Latino experience is.

Locking up other people of color

from cages to holding somebody's neck down,

we're moving from sympathy to solidarity.

Black lives matter!

Sometimes we feel powerless.

I think it's super-important to highlight, you have a voice.

You have a very powerful voice.

It might be an angry vote

but it's gonna be a vote nonetheless.
