WASHINGTON – Republican Party General Chairman Mel Martinez released the following statement recognizing National Hispanic Heritage Month:
“This month, we celebrate the millions of Hispanics who every single day are contributing to our great nation. We honor those who have come here to live the American dream, we recognize those who have been here for generations, and we thank those who are serving our nation in uniform here and overseas.
“The Republican Party is dedicated to making sure opportunity is available for all Americans. In the last six and a half years, we have seen the achievement gap in schools narrow, Hispanic unemployment reach historic lows, and unprecedented numbers of Hispanics opening their own small businesses. We can look back with pride on what we’ve achieved, and we can look forward knowing that the future holds even greater accomplishments.”
