he Congressional Hispanic Caucus urged NBCUniversal and "Saturday Night Live" producer Lorne Michaels to "disinvite" Donald Trump from hosting this weekend's broadcast of the program due to the real-estate mogul and Presidential candidate's recent remarks about Mexicans and Latinos.
The Caucus' "Statement of Opposition" was approved by two-thirds of its 26 members., who serve in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. The group cited a range of factors, including NBCU parent Comcast's assurances during hearings on its now-defunct efforts to merge with Time Warner Cable that it was committed to diversity and the idea that Trump's remarks have made Latinos and Hispanics fearful, as reasons for its stance.
