Default Hispanic caucus weighs whether to let Republican join

Some Hispanic Democrats are angry that a Hispanic would like to join the "Hispanic Caucus"...

Why not just change the name to the "Congressional Caucus Only for Hispanics That Think A Certain Way"?...

Hispanic caucus weighs whether to let Republican join

Quote:
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus could decide by Thursday whether to add Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) to its ranks over the protest of several Democrats.

The CHC is waiting on guidance from the House Administration Committee about whether it has to let Curbelo join the historically Democratic Caucus and hopes to receive the verdict by Thursday’s weekly meeting, CHC Chairwoman Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.) told POLITICO.

“We asked them to be quick, and we’re hoping that we get something by our meeting tomorrow,” Lujan Grisham said Wednesday. “I’d like to be able to have that in front of the members so we can continue to have that discussion.”

The CHC decided to table the issue last week after outcry from some members about Curbelo joining the caucus, calling it a political ploy on his part to improve his reelection chances.

Associations and other groups and clubs that identify by the ethnicity or race or both, of the members, are all full of crap.

Bring it on if you object.
