Cuban-American Sen. Marco Rubio has an “anti-Hispanic stand,” according to the head of the dominant Spanish-language media outlet in the United States.

“The fact that Rubio and some Republican presidential candidates have an anti-Hispanic stand that they don’t want to share with our community is understandable but despicable,” Univision Chairman Haim Saban wrote in an email to The New Yorker for an article about the feud between Rubio and Univision.

The email did not say exactly how the Florida senator, the most prominent Hispanic Republican in America, is “anti-Hispanic,” although The New Yorker pointed out that Rubio’s views on immigration are far to the right of those of most Hispanic Americans.

Rubio, seen as a top contender for the Republican vice-presidential nomination, began feuding with Univision in July and now boycotts the organization. The Miami Herald reported in October that the bad feeling arose because Univision had offered to kill a story about Rubio’s brother-in-law's being busted for drugs 25 years ago, if the senator would cooperate with the media outlet. Rubio refused.

The New Yorker article is in the Jan. 9 issue of the magazine, which hit newsstands Tuesday.
