Happy New Year! Truly, a new day has begun.
Launched in 2017, it feels so good to see all of the efforts that were put into the Global Hispanic Caucus since then paying off with a Happy Blue Year 2021. Let the world know you’re a caucus members with a profile frame www.facebook.com/profilepicframes/?selected_overlay_id=458094495350528
We’re at an inflection point now. Our membership is larger than it’s ever been, we’ve turned Congress and the White House blue, but we came so close to losing our country entirely. What do you think we need to do in the days ahead to ensure we never again come so close? Please tell us in this planning and scheduling survey at http://bit.ly/21ghcsurvey
2021 will see a lot more regional programming. Our first HC-AP meeting will be on Saturday the 23rd at 4AM EST https://www.democratsabroad.org/hc_events, Dates and times for Americas and EMEA caucus meetings are coming soon.
Unity is a central theme of the Biden-Harris administration, and we intend to collaborate with other caucus and entities as often as possible. In conjunction with other caucuses we are presenting a series of events in 2021 to help demystify the structure of Democrats Abroad and identify leadership opportunities for our caucus members.
We love to talk to our members. Please connect with us or contact us at:

Hispanic Caucus of Democrats Abroad Calls for the Immediate Impeachment and Removal of Donald J. Trump
On January 6th, 2021 a group of armed rioters stormed and occupied the US Capitol building in a deliberate attempt to disrupt Joe Biden’s certification as the 46th President. As a result, people have died, including a Capitol Police officer. This attack on the Capitol while our elected Congress was in session is an act of domestic terrorism.
Actions have consequences, regardless of when they occur.
Those who have nothing to say as this unfolds are either too cowardly to speak up when they see something that they know is wrong, or as morally bankrupt as the armed criminals who broke the windows of the Capitol and planted pipe bombs. Confederate and Nazi flags were flown in the nation’s heart. The United States of America was built by immigrants; there is no place for white supremacy or the eugenicist beliefs of those two failed national experiments.
This is beyond the pale. The shamelessness of this event is amplified by its body count. The most recent casualty was Officer Brian Sicknick of the Capitol Police, whose death due to a clash with rioters brings the death toll up to five. If there are no consequences for this kind of reckless endangerment and abuse of power, this becomes the new normal. Members of Congress and the President cannot use elected office to incite violence in order to overthrow a lawful election; such behavior constitutes treason. Removing those who have done so is an action more about the future of our democracy than the immediate problems of the present. Measures must also be taken against the individuals who shamelessly desecrated the Capitol.
The Hispanic Caucus of Democrats Abroad calls on Congress to Impeach the president and for the resignation of the 147 members of the so called sedition caucus who voted to overturn the results of the 2020 Presidential Election.
