Michelle Fields’s mother, Xiomara, is a Honduran-born activist who opposed Donald Trump long before her daughter’s alleged incident.
The elder Fields runs a nonprofit for illegal immigrants in Los Angeles that receives a substantial portion of its funding from the U.S. and California tax payers.
A 2014 posting on a forum for the Honduran consulate in Los Angeles accuses Fields’s mother of cheating illegal immigrants.
We reached out to both Fields and will update this post when we hear something back.
Michelle Fields clearly has a conflict of interest regarding Trump.
Her mother’s federal money will be cut off if Trump
kicks out all the illegals makes America great again.
Here’s just one of the many anti-Trump statements that Fields’s mother has since deleted from her Facebook:
Fields’s mama deleted this from her Facebook.
Fields, for her part, deleted a tweet from her mother warning that Donald Trump may deport her.
(We found the tweet though!)
Michelle Fields’s mother suggests she’ll be deported at a Trump event.
Fields’s mother is also an immigration consultant connected to pro-amnesty Honduran organizations in the U.S. She is a leader and founder of La Casa del Hondureno (The Honduran House). She was also president of the Honduran-American Alliance, according to the Los Angeles Times in 1999.

Fields was quoted in a Spanish language newspaper discussing all she does for illegal immigrants.
We help them fill out applications deferred action and Temporary Protected Status (TPS); we also have immigration lawyers who come to give free legal advice… says Xiomara Fields, president of the organization.
La Casa del Hondureño is dedicated to guide the community in legal, educational and health issues, in order to contribute to progress and knowledge of migrants.
The idea is to guide the community and tell people that do not be fooled; there are many people with asylum cases that are defrauded by notaries who pose as lawyers, promising something that will not ever meet… she adds.
This organization offers free legal seminars once a month, where reporting on immigration protections, labor rights, prevention of domestic violence and victims of crime benefits.
They also provide free counseling programs county health for pregnant women and older adults; and report on the procedures for establishing a business.
People who come to our countries is what makes the most difficult tasks and this is the way to help them, so they have a better quality of life… said Fields.
This organization offers Hondurans the process of birth, marriage and death; likewise, it provides support to families who need to repatriate a corpse and those require a rap sheet.
The only thing we charge shipping is spending and what is paid to tramitador, or $ 30 for a birth certificate. Sometimes it is more expensive to get help from a family member… says Fields.
Ada Martinez-Befort, prosecutor of the organization, ensures that these contributions allow finance the operations of the office. However, higher costs are covered by community events. [From Google translate because you aren’t paying me (ha!) to do any translations for you. Emphasis is ours].
Ay carumba! Like mama, like daughter?
Fields’s boyfriend Jamie Weinstein is similarly anti-Trump. Weinstein’s late father Harris Weinstein was a major Republican donor.
It was Weinstein who first promoted Fields’s story.
Fields claimed on national television that she was a supporter of Trump’s but given her family’s financial incentives to lie and her history of lying.
Why should we believe her?
