Ylianna Guerra, Miss Texas USA 2015, is one of the favorite for Miss USA 2015. The pageant will be held on July 12, 2015 in Baton Rouge. In the weeks since Donald Trump’s controversial remarks about immigration, the Miss USA pageant has lost its network, its co-hosts, multiple judges, and a major sponsor.
The beauty queen is directly concerned by the polemic because she’s mexican. A lot of people think that the Miss Universe Organization will probably crown another Latina as Miss USA 2015 to prove “they” are not against the Latin community. “I’m very proud of my Mexican roots,” Guerra said. “I’m here not only to represent every Texan, but also Hispanics and Mexicans as well.”
Ylianna Guerra about Trump’s racist comments
“We were not going to let our states down,” Guerra told ET. “It’s taken a lot of hard work and determination to get here, and we’re just really focused right now on the pageant and focused on Miss USA and being here. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
“It’s not that we’re standing by Trump or against Trump…Educated women, powerful women, strong women, that’s what it’s about. It’s about being confidently beautiful and it’s about serving your community. It’s not about anything political.” The Miss USA pageant is set to air on July 12 on Reelz Channel, after being dropped by both Univision and NBC.
