Zoe Saldana may be firing heavy shots at Donald Trump when she says she's very excited to see the Latin culture growing in America. The Presidential hopeful once said Mexican immigrants are those polluting the USA, calling them criminals, rapists and drugs dealers in a campaign speech earlier this year.
"You can't kill us. You can't send us back," she tells Latina Magazine for its December/January cover story. "We are millions and millions here because it is our time to migrate. We are the youngest culture. We are doing what your people did. So shut up and just deal with it."
Saldana, 37, whose mother is Puerto Rican and whose late father hailed from the Dominican Republic, says her people are having a moment, and she hopes everyone will learn to embrace it, and fast.
"Adjust your laws, because it's not going away. If anything, I want to give them a hug, and say, 'It's okay. It's new. Don't be scared. We're great people. We're gonna do great and better things for your country. Trust me,'" she also says. "
Saldana, who explains she and husband Marco Perego speak to their nearly 1-year-old twin sons in a combination of Italian and Spanish, might come off as blunt – but don't mistake it for rage.
"We're not angry either. We're a culture that isn't angry," she added.
