The head of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce resigned Tuesday from President Donald Trump's National Diversity Council after threatening to leave if the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was ended.
"There is no letter: This is it, this is the resignation," Javier Palomarez told HLN's Carol Costello.
"I tried to work as hard as I could with this administration on this issue, and I continue to want to work with them on other issues, like tax reform, like healthcare reform, and so many other important things," he continued. "But I really don't see the logic in doing what we're doing right now."
Palomarez then confirmed, on live television, "I am resigning right now from that council. I don't see the point in continuing to try to work with people that clearly don't see this issue the way I do."
The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce released a statement on Trump's decision later Tuesday.
