A First-Gen Mexican Immigrant Explains Why He Wants Trump To Build A Wall

Although Donald Trump’s immigration policies could one day force him and his family out of the United States, Mexican citizen David Perez supports the president-elect’s plan to crack down on enforcement and build a wall.

“What appeals to me about Trump is the same message that appeals to all Americans that voted for him,” Perez, 32, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Trump’s message is about putting America first and doing what’s best for the American people, even if it’s not the best for me.”

He’s a first generation immigrant from Mexico City now residing in Utah on a student visa.
