Up to 15 members of Donald Trump's National Hispanic Advisory Council have either already quit or announced that they will after they said they were unhappy with the GOP presidential nominee's speech on immigration Wednesday, according to some news outlets.

One member, Jacob Monty, resigned immediately after the Trump's speech in Phoenix, and several others said they are inclined to do so.

Fox News reported Thursday afternoon that at least six members of the council already had resigned or are thinking about doing so. CBS News reported that the number was 15 — half of the council's 30 members.

Fox News' John Roberts reported that members are upset because they think Trump should have handled such as serious subject in a different forum than a campaign rally where they felt the candidate was whipping up the crowd at the expense of Latinos.

They also were unhappy with what they saw as a subtle call for self-deportation, Roberts said.

Monty told MSNBC on Thursday he was saddened to have to quit, "because I am no fan of Hillary Clinton."

He said he believes Trump may have rejected the group's advice because he "listens to whoever talks to him last."

"Maybe this is a media play. And I feel serious about that," he said. "Maybe this is part of a media play where he wants to create a media empire that will focus on the millions of nativists that believe that the country needs to control immigration. And if that's his play, it will be good and he'll have millions of followers. But he won't win the presidency."
