RIGHT NOW at NRN w/Lexit: Hey Democrats, Latinos Care About More Than Just Immigration
Latinos want a thriving economy and great jobs. Too often, the Democrats push immigration as the greatest concern among Hispanics and Latinos. This isn’t the case. Under President, Hispanic unemployment is at an all time low. Jobs are up. Veterans now have better healthcare. The Lexit Movement communicates these truths every day. They wake up Latinos to who they really are. Why stay Democrat under a false pretense. David Basulto told NRN during an interview with the two founders of Lexit, “Naturally, Latinos are Conservative. We’re pro-God, we’re pro-life, we’re pro-family.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row column_type=”block” font_color=”light” background_type=”video” video_bg_url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwXkHjJx-c4″ video_bg_start_time=”139″ video_bg_end_time=”900″ video_bg_parallax=”true” add_overlay=”yes” overlay_opacity=”20″ bt_text=”LEXIT” bt_font_weight=”300″ bt_font_style=”italic” shift_y=”0″ z_index=”0″ add_bigtext=”true” min_height=”100″ bt_max_width=”300″][vc_column][wvc_video_opener caption_position=”bottom” video_url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwXkHjJx-c4″ caption=”Lexit Spotlight | Interview with JESSE HOLGUIN & DAVID BASULTO”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
Lexit’s Grassroots Movement
The Lexit Movement was founded in November of 2018 as a grassroots organization to help Latinos leave the neo-Marxist, liberal Left, and adopt conservative values. In just a few months what started as a humble effort has expanded and reached national attention, with more than 160,000 members nationwide. Lexit has also been invited to speak at Young Latino Leadership Summit for Turning Point USA, BLEXIT rally, the Wall Symposium, Republican National Committee headquarters, and the White House three times. Quickly becoming the most popular and influential Latino Conservative Movement in the United States.
Lexit is a rare people-powered Latino movement. They are staunch, conservative American-Latinos at their core. Founded by two men who have turned their life around, David Basulto and Jesse Holguin came from Los Angeles’ troubled neighborhoods. David Basulto escaped the negative vortex of his neighborhood by enlisting in the US Army, where he later rose to the rank of Sergeant. Basulto did a tour in Iraq and, through his service in the armed forces, became a patriotic conservative veteran.
Jesse Holguin had a dramatically different path. His life was drastically altered after a fellow gang member shot him, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. Holguin was airlifted to the hospital where he narrowly escaped death followed by an encounter with God. His new found faith reshaped his moral construct. Holguin’s new set of values brought him to an impasse where he could no longer justify the Left’s paradigm. Holguin explained to NRN how his Christian faith changed every other area of his life. He said, “No longer as a Christian could I support the Democrat Party.”
Natalia Godoy is another face of Lexit. She is currently the Communications Director. Her experience is similar to many who live in this country as immigrants looking for a better life, escaping from social policies that have ravished many Latin American countries. There are many others that make up Lexit’s team. Together they’ve vowed to fight against Communist/Globalist ideology and save Latinos from their parasitic fallacies that undermine the fabric of America’s way of life.
Lexit Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with President Trump at the White House
Lexit feels very honored, granted their humble beginnings, to be President Trump’s esteemed guest for the Hispanic Heritage Month annual event at the White House. A celebration of Latinos from all over Latin America was on full display. President Trump threw a ballroom-style party, with Spanish music and food to welcomed everyone in attendance, showing once again that he is the “people’s president.” President Trump remarks about and towards the Latino community was encouraging and inspiring. One of the memorable moments for Lexit was when President Trump warded off the crowd as a sign of concern for Holguin who is in a wheelchair as they met for the first time.
David Basulto told NRN: “The thing that really helps with our outreach is because of our background because we do come from the barrios of LA. For people to see that. These are people just like me who rose up to the point where the president is sending them an invitation to come out and hosting them. We actually did get to meet President Trump.”
Lexit turns its focus to 2020 by continuing to develop efforts to awaken the Latino community of the dangers of Socialism and pointing them to the freedoms of Conservatism. Lexit plans to continue their support to the president by having a rally this November in Los Angeles, California.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
