I think that Latinos run a huge risk if a Republican candidate wins the election. None of them is on our side. My main motivation as a citizen is to be able to vote. Everything they have siad, as a Mexican it really hurts me, but it hurts me not because of me but because of my daughter. I will not give my vote to someone who has insulted my daughter and called her an "anchor baby." She is an American citizen. As a Latina, I will not go against my community. ///// Yo considero que los latinos corremos mucho peligro si gana alguno de los candidatos republicanos. Ninguno está de nuestro lado. Mi principal motivo, lo que me inspira ser ciudadana es para poder votar. Todo lo que han dicho, a mí como mexicana, me duele. Pero me duele no por mí, pero por mi hija. Yo no voy a regalar mi voto a alguien que ha insultado a mi hija, y que la ha llamado "niña ancla." Ella es una ciudadana americana. Como latina, yo no voy a ir en contra de mi comunidad. partial / EN only
