Hispanic Conservative Group Condemns Rep. Gohmert’s ‘Hispanic’ Terrorist Claim

The conservative Hispanic Leadership Network is not happy with Rep. Louie Gohmert’s (R-TX) claim Wednesday that Islamic terrorists could train their members to “act like Hispanic” in order to infiltrate the United States. 

“Rep. Louie Gohmert’s comments were unacceptable, offensive, and ignorant,” Jennifer S. Korn, executive director of HLN, said in a statement. “Using a national tragedy to further his own anti-immigration reform agenda is not only shameful, but also a blatant attempt to disingenuously twist public sentiment at a vulnerable time. We must take a strong stand and making it clear this kind of intolerance has no place in the conservative movement.”
