When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They are bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.

When 2016 Republican presidential runner Donald Trump announced his candidacy, he managed to simultaneously alienate more than 11 percent of American voters.

Public response has been swift.

To date, Univision has eradicated the Trump-owned Miss USA Pageant from its airing schedule, NBC has released a statement letting everyone know just how separate their views are from those he's spewed, and the Latino community is condemning the short-sighted businessman at large.

One such Latina is Becky G., an 18-year-old Mexican-American singer whose condemnation was particularly notable. On Friday, Becky released a song called "We Are Mexico," an ode to America's hard working immigrants inspired by her own grandparents, who came to the U.S. from Mexico themselves.

On her self-titled YouTube channel, she wrote:

This is for you Donald Trump.

The channel itself seems to be serving as almost a support system for those who have felt ostracized or offended by Trump's remarks.

And it seems that Becky is pleased with the diverse group "We Are Mexico" has attracted.

Any movement that betters the lives of those around them is a great one. Hats off to Becky G. and all she's accomplished.
