I thought liberals were supposed to be the tolerant ones? This Hispanic House Democrat just proved that isn’t true. Check out where he told Donald Trump to put the border wall:

Vela begins the letter noting that he agrees with Trump that Mexico should do more to deter violence from drug cartels and that felons in the U.S. illegally should be deported. But he then excoriates the real estate mogul over his rhetoric about Hispanics, including Trump’s assertion that an American-born federal judge of Mexican descent won’t be impartial in a lawsuit against Trump University.
