Trump visits Mexican border despite remarks on latinos

Multi-millionaire and a possible upcoming Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, visited the Mexican border as part of his promise to tackle immigration.
Border security and immigration have been two key topics for Mr Trump since he announced his candidacy.
Trump's blunt comments about Mexican immigrants have enraged Latinos across the country, when he said that Latinos bring drugs and crime into the United States.
A local branch of border patrol agents who were going to host the Laredo event pulled out at the last minute. Trump said they were "scared".
His team decided to go anyway "despite the great danger".
Trump arrived wearing a hat with his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again".
The National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 said in a statement: "After careful consideration of all the factors involved in this event and communicating with members of the National Border Patrol Council at the National level, it has been decided... to pull out of all events involving Donald Trump."
Trump's campaign said the group was "silenced directly from superiors in Washington who do not want people to know how bad it is on the border".
"They're afraid of saying what's happening. They were told 'silencio'. If I win, believe me, we'll get things straightened out," he added.
