WASHINGTON, DC– The Latino Coalition (TLC) Chairman and former U.S. Small Business Administrator Hector Barreto is participating today in a Cinco de Mayo celebration at the White House. Barreto released the following statement:
“Cinco de Mayo’s meaning has shifted considerably over time; it has represented everything from immigrant nostalgia to U.S. patriotism during World War II,” explained Barreto.
“Today, Cinco de Mayo is a uniquely American celebration that reflects the energy and ambition of the Latino-American community. I’m honored to join our president and millions of other Americans in celebrating Hispanic Americans’ entrepreneurial and artistic culture, our considerable accomplishments, and, most importantly, our aspirations as a community and economic leaders.”
