Immigration Hardliners Tweet Support For 'Mexican Weather Girls' (UPDATED)

Posted: Updated:

One immigration hardliner has found a group of people he’s not opposed to allowing into the country: beautiful Mexican weather reporters.

Robert Stacy McCain, a conservative writer for the American Spectator, tweeted out a message Friday saying: “Under my immigration reform plan, Mexican TV weather girls are eligible for green cards,” with a link to a blog post showing a series of photos of sexy Latinas doing weather reports. The post, published by The Reaganite Republican, is entitled "Mexican TV Weather-Girls: Today's Forecast? HAWT!"

The message was retweeted by Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, one of the leading voices advocating for stricter immigration laws and opposing a pathway to citizenship for the country’s 11.1 million undocumented immigrants.

HuffPost Latino Voices reached out to McCain and Krikorian on Twitter to ask why they would post and retweet a message that many Latinos would find offensive. McCain responded with the following tweet:

Ever heard of Don Rickles? I mean, at some point, offending people is a feature, not a bug.

Krikorian did not immediately respond.

Another person who retweeted the message described himself as a “conservative with a sense of humor” and used the Texan flag as his avatar.

Spanish-language television weather broadcasts often feature beautiful, sometimes scantily clad young women.
