Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders Promise to Have Hispanics in Cabinet
Hillary Clinton and fellow Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders have both promised to nominate Hispanics into key posts in their cabinet with their administration if they are elected, according to the nation’s biggest coalition for Hispanics.

However, it only received responses from the two contenders from the Democrats and none from any Republican, according to the results that have been reviewed by an independent third party.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wrote that from here special assistant to her cabinet members, Hispanics would play an important role in helping to shape her policy priorities and will be effectively represented in the administration’s agencies.
Bernie Sanders the U.S. Senator who is from Vermont promised his administration would reflect the diverse make up that exists in the country. He added that there was no place more important for such diversity than our cabinet.

Leading hopefuls from the Republican Party Ted Cruz the U.S. Senator from Texas and Donald Trump promised to tighten up the U.S. borders as well as deport the undocumented immigrants.
The responses arrive, as the contest of the Democrats for the presidential nominations will roll into a number of diverse states such as New York late in April and the minority heavy state of California during June.
African Americans and Hispanics have emerged as very important voting blocs in this election, helping Clinton move ahead of Sanders in the race for delegates thus far.
