Since the moment he launched his campaign, Donald Trump has taken aim at Mexican immigrants, infamously calling them “rapists” and “criminals.” And his anti-immigrant remarks often come with a promise to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. So when Eva Longoria took the stage Monday evening at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, she dedicated her time to explain how, as a Mexican-American from Texas, she’s been personally insulted by the GOP presidential nominee.
“Like many of you, this...Read more
