Attacked by Trump, Mexicans Look to Jewish Groups to Help Update Image

Donald Trump and his racially charged rhetoric may be divisive on many levels. But the Republican presidential candidate has been a catalyst for uniting two, seemingly disparate groups: Mexicans and Jews.

U.S. residents of Mexican descent, feeling besieged by Trump’s attacks on their culture and ancestral homeland, are ramping up ties to American Jewish networks and emulating Jewish models of political activism, including the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. And many Jewish activists are eager to help.

Trump on Saturday was widely criticized for tweeting an image of Hillary Clinton next to a pile of cash and a Star of David shape emblazoned with the words "Most corrupt candidate ever."

The growing bond comes as Mexico's government pursues a public relations campaign designed to update the image of Mexicans and convince Americans that Mexico is more than just a country that happens to share a border with the U.S.

“The same way that Israel is a very strategic partner of the United States, Mexico is, too — that is what we are emphasizing,” Mexico’s newly appointed ambassador to the United States, Carlos Sada, told POLITICO. “Of course, there is a kind of wake up call when somebody attacks you.”

The American Jewish Committee, a major advocacy organization, has been a key partner in the Mexican diaspora’s surging interest in political activism. Read the rest at Politico
