Hispanic Federation Statement on Decision by Macy’s to Discontinue Sale of Donald Trump Merchandise in Stores PDF Print E-mail

July 1, 2015 (New York, NY) – Hispanic Federation has released the following statement regarding Macy’s decision to pull Donald Trump merchandise from its stores.

“The Hispanic Federation applauds the decision by Macy’s to discontinue their relationship with Donald Trump and pull his brand merchandise from its stores. It has become clear that Mr. Trump’s comments, which reflected gross mischaracterizations of Mexicans – and, by extension, the Latino community – are not in line with the values Macy’s and the overwhelming majority of Americans hold dear.

Rather than apologize, Mr. Trump has chosen to continue to disparage the entire Latino community by defending his comments. We are proud that Macy’s has expressed in no uncertain terms that they will not tolerate Mr. Trump’s brand of bigotry. It affirms the values of diversity, respect and fairness we share as institutional partners and, above all, prize as a nation."

HF Statement on NBCU and Univision Severing Ties with Donald Trump PDF Print E-mail

The Hispanic Federation applauds the decision by NBCUniversal (NBCU) to terminate its relationship with the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, both of which were joint ventures between NBCU and Donald Trump. Mr. Trump’s outrageous characterizations of Mexican immigrants to the United States during his campaign launch were nothing short of contemptible and insulting to the millions of Americans of Mexican descent—and by extension, the entire Latino community—who have contributed their work, initiative, and, in many cases, their lives, to the betterment of the United States. NBCU, which is one of our nation’s most storied broadcasting companies, stood for what's right by distancing itself from Mr. Trump and his shameful and offensive comments.

HF Statement on King v. Burwell Supreme Court Decision PDF Print E-mail

The Hispanic Federation applauds the United States Supreme Court’s decision to uphold a key aspect of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in the case of King v. Burwell.  From the moment it was passed by Congress and signed by President Obama, this law has been the subject of misguided political and legal challenges.  The Court’s decision today reaffirms the legal validity and importance of the tax-credits that help to make the Affordable Care Act a workable health insurance solution for American families across our nation.  It’s now time to work on expanding President Obama's health legislation to the millions of Americans who still lack affordable health care, including far too many Hispanic men, women and children. We look forward to working with state governments and Congress to strengthen this vital law for our community and nation.
