“Make no mistake about it, LULAC is there, first and foremost to demand that federal workers be allowed to get back to their jobs,” Domingo Garcia, national president of LULAC, said in a statement.
“Also, we are not changing our position which we have consistently conveyed from our members and millions more Latinos. Our children and loved ones are not bargaining chips to be bartered or exchanged when a threat is being made against them,” Garcia added.
LULAC told CNN that other organizations rejected the White House’s invitation to attend the meeting.
