Mexicans Blow Up Donald Trump Effigy for Easter (VIDEO)
Mexicans blew up a Donald Trump effigy for Easter this year.
The Mexicans are very upset that Donald Trump wants to build a border wall.
The residents in several cities torched and blew up effigies of Donald Trump in the Easter tradition knows as “La Quema de Judas” or “The Burning of Judas.” Trump is considered a “Judas” because of his strong border security and pro-American policies.
Residents in various Mexican cities have added U.S. Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump to one of their Easter traditions by setting a paper effigy of him on fire.
Cities like Monterrey, Nuevo Leon and Ciudad Juarez Chihuahua took part in the Easter weekend tradition known as the “La Quema de Judas” or “The Burning of Judas,” Mexico’s El Universal reported. Residents threw rotten eggs, used fireworks and then set fire to the paper effigies.
The event is part of a local Catholic tradition where community presents the struggle between good and evil. The tradition calls for community members to set fire to an effigy of Judas Iscariot who, according to Catholic beliefs, is the apostle that turned Jesus in to the Pharisees.
For several years residents in various Mexican communities have opted to use Mexican politicians or other controversial figures instead of Judas. As Breitbart Texas previously reported, Mexican news outlets and some politicians like former President Vicente Fox have vilified Trump over his public call to have Mexico pay for a wall between the two nations as well as his strong stance on illegal immigration.
