Since Donald Trump began his term as the president of the United States, he dedicate himself to persecuting and attacking thousands of Mexicans—us who honestly work in his country. He deported me and my companions separating us from our families. I beg the Virgin of Guadalupe that Trump wouldn’t win the next election in November.

Thanks to Saint Jude Thaddeus because he made possible the election of Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th President of North-American United States. To celebrate his election and the MLK birthday, I dance and sing with mariachi at the Paseo de la Reforma near the American embassy.

I thank the citizens of San Evelio del Volcan for giving me their civic votes. Although I won by six votes—which are more precious than gold—I will try hard for everyone. Now those who didn’t vote for me, I ask them to give back the gifts received during the campaign. It would be fair. This retablo is made by MLE in exchange of a food basket and two tickets to the movies.

I’m celebrating the election of Barack Obama as president of United States. May the Abraham Lincoln’s spirit give him strength, so he would govern with liberty and democracy, with impartial justice and friendly relationship with every corner of the world that welcomes him.

I dedicate this retablo to the Virgin of Carmen so that the american people would elect John McCain as president because he is a patriot who often goes in the restaurant, where my son works, in Phoenix, Arizona.
