In a dramatic trailer for a Mexican film, audio of Donald Trump is played while video shows illegal immigrants being shot as they cross the border into the United Sates.

The Spanish-language trailer for the film “Desierto” was released on Tuesday and features an excerpt from Trump’s presidential announcement speech. As the words are translated into Spanish on the screen, Trump’s voice is juxtaposed over movie scenes of Mexican immigrants crossing the border.

“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems,” Trump says in the audio. “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists. And it’s gotta stop. And it’s gotta stop fast.”

The film, due out in Mexico on April 15, tells the story of a group of illegal immigrants and the vigilante they encounter as they attempt to make the journey into America. As the trailer ends, one of the immigrants is shot by the vigilante in a dramatic scene. The video cuts away to “Los Palabras Son Tan Peligrosas Como Las Balas.”  In English: “Words are as dangerous as bullets.”
