President Donald Trump signed an executive order Thursday, July 9, which aims to improve the welfare of the more than 60 million Latinos living in the United States.

In general terms, the new executive order presented from the White House, seeks to improve the access for Latinos in the United States to new economic and educational opportunities. Identifying and promoting educational and workforce development practices that have improved professional, economic, and educational outcomes. 

This work will be in the hands of specialized interdisciplinary working groups, with a clear objective; to guarantee free access to education and from there generate connections with the labor market, which will translate into economic and social welfare improvements for citizens. 

This new approach toward Latin American citizens by the government of President Trump, took place a few days after the visit of the President of Mexico López Obrador to whom he emphasized that his administration recognizes the benefits that the Latin American people have generated to the greatness of the United States. 

This Thursday, in a press conference from the White House, President Trump assured that the effort directed toward Latinos, whom he described as a “treasure” for the country, guarantees freedom and a better future for these people.

President Trump also praised Hispanics, saying they are hard-working people who love America and defend our country. That is why we will defend them, he said.

I’m going to fight to ensure that every Hispanic American parent has the freedom and the right to send your child to the public, private, charter, faith-based, magnet, home, or independent school of your choice,” President Trump continued.

In the same speech, President Trump took the opportunity to recall that before the arrival of the CCP Virus, the unemployment and poverty rates of Latinos in the United States were the lowest in history. He was optimistic that these rates would soon recover, but warned that for this to happen, it is important that healthy youth and children resume normal work and education activities. 

He took the opportunity to point again to the Democrats, whom he accused of making political use of this situation, “We have to get our schools open and stop this political nonsense.  And it’s only political nonsense; it’s politics. They don’t want to open because they think it will help them on November 3rd. I think it’s going to hurt them on November 3rd.  Open your schools.”
