The founder of a conservative Latino group in Gainesville will be Rep. Doug Collins' guest at Tuesday night's State of the Union address in Washington, D.C.
Art Gallegos, a native of San Diego, moved to Georgia in 1998. He is the co-founder of LCO, the Latinos Conservative Organization.
Gallegos appeared with Republican Collins on Fox & Friends on the Fox News Channel Monday morning to discuss his support of President Trump's border security plan.
"My parents immigrated to the United States, orderly, with the laws," Gallegos said during the interview. "You know, it's [the border wall] never been to deter anybody from coming to this great country, but to enforce our laws, secure our borders and to make sure our families are protected."
Collins said he wanted Democrats to understand that there are conservative Latinos who support border security, and that's why Gallegos was the perfect choice to be his guest.
"Art brings a great perspective. The Latino community is one that is so many times portrayed in the main stream media as being against the president or being against what's going on at the border and that's just not true," Collins said.
Gallegos contends a large portion of the Latino community has conservative views.
Gallegos will fly to Washington, D.C. to witness the State of the Union address in person in the House of Representatives.
