If Marco Gutierrez – founder of Latinos for Trump – knew his phrase “taco trucks on every corner” was going to galvanize Latino outreach groups, he might have thought twice before he said those words. Last week, the Mexican-born Trump supporter said that if immigration goes unchecked, the United States will eventually have taco trucks all over the place, including outside the White House. Aside from being clowned for unwittingly coming up with a genius idea, he’s also inspired the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to use “taco trucks on every corner” to fuel a voter registration campaign.
Named Guac the Vote, the organization is working with more than 200 chambers of commerce and business associations to make taco trucks a one-stop shop. On top of providing the public with delicious tacos, USHCC hopes they’ll double as voter registration centers. With registration deadlines quickly approaching for many states, USHCC wants to get the ball rolling soon. “We are hoping in the next two weeks it will be in full swing,” Javier Palomarez, the chamber’s president, told NBC News.
