Why America Ferrera Is Saying 'Thank You!' to Donald Trump

Ferrera thanks Trump for his offensive tactics.

“I heard what you said about the kind of people you think Latino immigrants are -- people with problems, who bring drugs, crime and rape to America. While your comments are incredibly ignorant and racist, I don't want to spend my time chastising you,” she wrote in a piece published on the Huffington Post. “Instead, I'm writing to say thank you!"

In the letter, the former "Ugly Betty" star added: “What you just did with your straight talk was send more Latino voters to the polls than several registration rallies combined!”

Ferrera ends the letter by urging Trump to “Keep it up!”

Trump’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
