In the Name of God, Rural Mexico Prays for Trump Defeat
Alicia Villa, the resident in the small southern market town of Molcaxac, is praying to God for the defeat of Republican candidate Donald Trump. For the past two decades, Molcaxac and hundreds of towns like it are depending on dollars sent by relatives who have been working in the US.
Villa depends on the funds sent by a daughter working illegally as a house cleaner in Sacramento, California for 12 years. She fears that lifeline will be cut by a Trump White House if Trump will come to power.
“Trump says he will kick out everyone who doesn’t have papers and we really need them to be there,” said Villa. Trump has narrowed the gap with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton ahead of next Tuesday’s vote. He has vowed to make it harder for illegal immigrants to live and work in the United States.
On the other hand, many folks can’t see enough good reasons to vote for either Trump or Clinton. And there’s a new bumper sticker that says, “I already hate our next president!”
All these ramblings make the Presidential Election more crucial and fascinating.
