Gwen Moore Celebrates Cinco de Mayo


Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-4) released the following statement celebrating Cinco de Mayo:

"Cinco de Mayo is an opportunity to reflect on the sacrifice and determination of a Mexican militia and their victory over better-equipped foreign invaders. Today, not only do we celebrate this courageous feat during the Battle of Puebla, but we also recognize the many contributions Mexican-Americans have made to American history and culture.

"As we reflect upon the rich heritage of Mexican-Americans, it is incumbent upon us to embrace the diversity that has helped enrich our nation.

"We have an opportunity to effect real change in the lives of our brothers, sisters, parents, neighbors and friends and pass comprehensive immigration reform that will unite families and reaffirm our foundation as a nation of immigrants.

"This Cinco de Mayo, let us celebrate the many contributions of the Mexican culture.

"Viva Cinco de Mayo, viva la comunidad Latina!"
