The founder of the Latinos For Trump group appeared on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes” and stunned the host — as well as the rest of the United States — with a prophecy of a deliciously dystopian future if Hillary Clinton becomes the president.
A day after Donald Trump’s big immigration speech, where he clarified his stance against offering amnesty to undocumented immigrants, Marco Gutierrez warned there would be “taco trucks on every corner” if the Republican presidential nominee’s plans aren’t implemented.
“My culture is a very dominant culture and it’s imposing and it’s causing problems,” he told shocked and horrified host Joy Reid. “If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.”
“I don’t even know what that means, and I’m almost afraid to ask,” Reid exclaimed, before passing the question off to her other guest, New York state Sen. Adriano Espaillat, who simply said, “I’m offended.”
Although he did not explain how the “taco trucks” worked into a discussion about illegal immigration, Gutierrez’s unconventional argument took Twitter by storm.

I think #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner is legitimately reminding people that being a nation of immigrants is rad. Also I can't stop laughing.— Steven Krueger (@stevenakrueger) September 2, 2016
Unsurprisingly, Trump surrogate’s deliciously ominous prophecy backfired spectacularly.

Is quite frankly the most bomb campaign slogan you could ever come up with
If there's going to be #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner can they please begin with our block?— Scott Simon (@nprscottsimon) September 2, 2016
Trump has not commented on Gutierrez’s remarks as of yet.
