Congressional Hispanic Caucus Asks SNL, NBC to "Disinvite' Trump
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus issued a statement Monday asking "Saturday Night Live" and parent company NBC Universal to "disinvite" Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump from hosting SNL on November 7.
The CHC said in its statement that Trump's rhetoric "demonizing Latinos and immigrants has created fear within these communities around the country, many of which are represented in Congress by members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus."
CHC Chairman Xavier Becerra, D-CA, also issued a statement. "Racism isn't funny and Trump's degrading comments about the Latino community have no place on national television. It's alarming to see NBC ignore Trump's record of hateful speech, from calling Mexican Americans rapists and murderers to vowing to build a wall on our southern border."
