A Los Angeles institution, taco trucks roam the City of Angels selling juicy burritos and spicy $1 tacos filled with pork, beef cheeks or tongue, goat and almost any other meat that can be wrapped in a tortilla and dabbed with hot sauce. The problem is, some don't roam enough. County supervisors last month sparked a save-the-taco-truck movement by raising penalties for caterers parking in one place for more than an hour to up to $1,000 and six months in jail.

Donald Trump won’t just deport undocumented immigrants. Apparently, he is also America’s best hope against the Great Taco Truck Menace. 

Latinos for Trump cofounder Marco Gutierrez issued the strange prophecy during a discussion of Trump’s proposal to deport millions. He began by quoting “Star Trek,” saying “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” 

Then, for good measure, he added, “and different times, different problems.”

When asked to clarify, Gutierrez went from “Trek” to trucks, specifically taco trucks. 

“My culture is a very dominant culture,” he warned. “And it’s imposing, and it’s causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re gonna have taco trucks every corner.” 

Naturally, folks on Twitter had some thoughts on the emergence of taco trucks as a campaign issue, causing #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner to trend:

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
