In a trailer for “Desierto,” a Spanish-language film that debuted Friday in Mexico, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s voice plays over a scene showing a man shoot undocumented immigrants trying to enter the United States.
“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems,” Trump says in English. His words appear in Spanish subtitles.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Trump says as the video shows people going under a barbed fence. “They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And it’s gotta stop. And it’s gotta stop fast.”
The preview graphically shows a bullet hit one of the immigrants in the group, projecting him forward as he falls to the ground. Another man then turns around, sees the vigilante and also gets shot. It then shows the immigrants running away, and the scene closes with a person in the crosshairs of a gun.
The phrase “words are as dangerous as bullets” flashes across the screen in Spanish at the end of the trailer.
The film features Gael Garcia Bernal, who plays one of the immigrants, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays the vigilante.
