Turning Point USA activist Sergio Eduardo Velasquez appeared on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Today, Wednesday, for the weekly TPUSA campus report segment. Velasquez, a student at Cal State Los Angeles, discussed his turn from the political left to becoming a conservative, despite being an illegal alien.

TPUSA activist Sergio Eduardo Velasquez appeared on Breitbart News Today recently to speak with host and Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow about his personal experiences as both a young conservative activist and an illegal immigrant.

Velasquez discussed how he became a political activist for Turning Point USA, stating: “In 2016 I supported Bernie Sanders, I fell into your typical leftist stereotype. I was self-entitled, I believed that more government was the answer to everything, I chanted racism, I failed to look at myself in the mirror and failed to consider that if there was an issue it might be not that society was the problem, but that I myself was the problem.” Velasquez continued to say: “I think part of being a conservative, part of realizing that essentially conservatism is the way to go, a lot of it was growing up.”

Breitbart News Today host Alex Marlow then asked Velasquez about his personal experiences as an illegal immigrant stating: “So lets talk about you not just becoming right of center but ultimately becoming an activist particularly with your history because you would be someone who’s part of the group who is the dreamers, the DACA recipients,” Marlow continued “I assume you don’t know another home — but at least one of your parents was not here legally — so this is your home as far as you know, though your status as an immigrant is not a legal status aside from this DACA protection, but still Trump resonates with you, why?”
