How much more racist and discriminatory can a US based group be? They don’t even call themselves, “Latin-American”. The road to balkanization continues. The Miami Herald reports …
Miami’s Latin Builders Association, which bills itself as the nation’s largest Hispanic construction trade group, has dumped Donald Trump over his strident remarks on immigration.
The LBA planned to hold its biennial gala for its new president at the Trump National Doral resort in November. The group gave the hotel notice Thursday that it is rescinding its contract.
“Most regrettably, Mr. Trump’s recent pattern of bigoted, sexist and ignorant verbal assaults on immigrants, women and veterans have made hosting the installation gala at the resort unfeasible,” LBA Executive Director Melissa Tapanes Llahues told members at a luncheon at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables.
“It is unfortunate that such a majestic location is now inextricably associated with someone who is simply antithetical and repugnant to the LBA’s legacy and mission.”
