WASHINGTON, DC --(Marketwired - March 23, 2016) - The following is a statement from the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce:
The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce applauds Speaker Paul Ryan for his leadership in addressing the negative rhetoric and gridlock generated throughout the current political discourse. At a time when many have chosen to stand quiet, Speaker Ryan has demonstrated political courage in acknowledging that we must not accept or enable divisive behavior, and that we must rather govern through debate and not disorder.
Ryan's message of hope, optimism and unity delivered to a room of interns -- the future leaders of our country -- reaffirms his concern and eagerness to lead our congress into a brighter future. Such leadership will continue to be necessary in Washington as the Hispanic community becomes a defining feature in the changing face of American small business.
With over 4.1 million Hispanic-owned businesses in the U.S., and growing, the USHCC recognizes that pragmatic leadership from both sides of the aisle will remain necessary for our nation's small business community to thrive and serve as a catalyst for robust economic growth. Our association is proud to have worked with, and hosted, Speaker Ryan in the past, and we look forward to a promising future of continued collaboration with the Speaker.
