LAS VEGAS - Donald Trump welcomed an immigrant supporter on stage with him at a campaign event Thursday in Las Vegas.

Myriam Witcher, who came to America from Colombia, proudly declared her support for the real estate mogul before the crowd.

"I'm Hispanic and I vote for Mr. Trump," she said.

Witcher later elaborated on why Trump is getting her vote. "I'm an American citizen. I'm legal. I waited to come here to the United States more than 14 years," Witcher said. "I respect the Constitution and Mr. Trump respects the Constitution. Mr. Donald Trump is the right man for America and for worldwide. He can lead a country. He's a great leader."

Trump has previously alienated some Hispanic voters with his comments on immigrants.
