Hispanic Caucus lawmaker won’t attend meeting with VP Harris’s new aide

Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.) said Monday he won’t attend a meeting between congressional Hispanic Democrats and Vice President Harris’s new communications director, Jamal Simmons.

Thursday’s virtual meeting is intended to defuse tensions between Simmons and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) over decade-old tweets where Harris’s new aide apparently called for the deportation of undocumented activists who revealed their immigration status live on MSNBC.
