We, The Los Angeles Metropolitan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce distanced itself from the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) many years ago for their “Country Club” behavior within its Administration and by most of its Board of Directors. Also in the past, USHCC’s mission to help and support their local chamber members was lost in favor of serving corporate America and marginalizing Latinos and we, as a Chamber, were not in accordance with that philosophy.
Donald Trump mentioned some time ago, that he can win the Latino vote, and Javier Palomarez actions are a clear example on how he’ll obtain it. The abuse and mistreatment of Latinos in exchange for a few coins is extremely shameful and will not be tolerated in any capacity.
