Latino Congressmen Praise Biden for Winning the Battle for America’s Soul

The president of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC), Joaquín Castro, considered this Saturday that the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, won in the elections last Tuesday the “battle for the soul” of the United States and assured that the community Latina was “essential” to this victory.

Castro, the leader of this group of Latino congressmen and fellow party members of Biden, offered the president-elect their collaboration to make the country once again a beacon of “hope for immigrants and refugees around the world.”

“We hope that in the days to come we will help build the most inclusive transition and the most diverse administration in the history of the United States, and we are confident that Latinos and Latinas will be well represented at all levels,” said the Texas congressman. it’s a statement.

According to data from the 2020 American Election Eve Poll exit poll, Latinos voted en masse for Biden, who received 70% of the Hispanic vote, for 27% for President Trump.

In these elections, Latinos became the second largest population group, after non-Hispanic whites, with 32 million possible voters, and their vote played a vital role in states such as Arizona, Nevada or Florida, among others.

The big television networks projected this Saturday Biden’s triumph in Pennsylvania, which meant that the Democratic candidate would overcome the 270-vote barrier in the Electoral College, the body that ultimately elects the US president.

In Castro’s opinion, millions of people, especially Latinos and immigrants, have “suffered” during the last four years due to the policies of the Administration of President Donald Trump, which so far refuses to acknowledge the victory of its rival.

And for the president of the CHC, now is the time, and they have the “responsibility” to do everything in their power to “invest in underserved communities and keep families together.”

The harsh immigration policy that characterized the Trump government even separated immigrant parents and children as soon as they crossed the border in mid-2018, in a deterrent measure that affected at least 2,500 minors, of whom about 545 have not been able to find each other. still with his parents.

“The election of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris fills our hearts with hope for a better future. This is a new day in the United States, ”Castro concluded.

Biden has repeatedly criticized the president’s policy that led to the separation of immigrant families and promised that if he wins the elections he will promote an initiative to grant citizenship to the 11 million undocumented immigrants estimated to live in the country, mostly Latinos. .

Biden, who is scheduled to give a prime-time speech, also reacted for the first time on Twitter to the proclamation of his victory, and declared himself “honored” that he had been chosen to lead the country.

“The work ahead will be tough, but I promise you this: I will be a president for all Americans, whether they voted for me or not. I will live up to the faith they have placed in me, ”promised the president-elect.

Major television networks projected victory for Biden and Harris shortly before 11:30 a.m., when Biden extended his lead in Pennsylvania to more than 30,000 votes over US President Donald Trump.

Shortly before, Trump had proclaimed on Twitter that he had won re-election “by a long shot”, something false.
