Latina Republican blocked from joining Congressional Hispanic Caucus
#mayraflores #republican #breakingnews
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute was founded in 1978 by three Hispanic members of Congress committed to creating a non-profit, nonpartisan leadership institute to ensure a diverse and inclusive work force that included talented Latino Americans. Today, twenty-five Hispanic members of Congress along with distinguished national executives are guiding the institute’s mission.
Democrats who run the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) have blocked a freshman Latina Republican lawmaker from joining the group.
Mayra Flores, who flipped a long-held Democratic House seat along the U.S.-Mexico border earlier this year, said she was refused admission by the CHC because of her party affiliation.
"As the first Mexican-born American Congresswoman, I thought the Hispanic Caucus would be open to working together," said Flores. "This denial once again proves a bias towards conservative Latinas that don’t fit their narrative or ideology."
The CHC is the largest working group within Congress for lawmakers of Hispanic and Latino descent. Its membership is made up of roughly 40 lawmakers from both the House and Senate.

The CHC has defended its decision by saying the organization is for Democrats only and that Flores holds "extreme" views at odds with its mission.
"Per our bylaws, the CHC is now for Democratic Members," said a spokesman for the caucus. "Rep. Flores’ extreme MAGA values and their attacks on Latinos and our nation’s democracy on January 6 do not align with CHC values."
"The party of ‘inclusion’ does it again," Flores said in reaction. - FoxNews
