SO Trump’s Hispanic outreach is suffering a bit of a setback after HALF of his Hispanic Advisory Board says they’re resigning today:

Politico got some reaction from the conservative Hispanics about why they’re leaving the campaign in disgust:
Jacob Monty, a member of Trump’s National Hispanic Advisory Council, has resigned, and Alfonso Aguilar, the president of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, said in an interview that he is “inclined” to pull his support.
“I was a strong supporter of Donald Trump when I believed he was going to address the immigration problem realistically and compassionately,” said Monty, a Houston attorney who has aggressively made the Latino case for Trump. “What I heard today was not realistic and not compassionate.”
He withdrew from the board following Trump’s speech in Phoenix, which was heavy on calls for border security and emphasized that all immigrants in the country illegally were subject to deportation.
Ironically, it was very unclear whether Trump was actually going to advocate deporting ALL illegals, as he had said before, in that speech. And this morning it sounds like he’s flip flopping AGAIN on his “softening” on immigration and deportation.
Here’s Roberto Aguilar talking about the betrayal from Trump, how he’s withdrawing support but definitely NOT supporting Hillary:

Welcome to Never Trump, homie!!
“When we met [earlier in August] he was going to approach this issue with a realistic plan, a compassionate plan, with a plan that was not disruptive to the immigrants that were here that were not lawbreakers,” said Monty, one of the Latino leaders who met with the candidate at Trump Tower recently, a gathering at which Trump reportedly softened his tone toward undocumented immigrants already in the country. “He didn’t deliver any of that.”
How is this guy supposedly a great “negotiator”? All he does is lie to people and tell them what they want to hear, and then screw them over later. How many times does he have to do this to his supporters before they figure it out?
