SAN ANTONIO – First Lady Dr. Jill Biden is under scrutiny after a controversial comment she made at the UnidosUS Annual Conference in San Antonio Monday.

The comment is drawing criticism from at least one Hispanic organization.

“Raul helped build this organization with the understanding that the diversity of this community—as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio— is your strength,” the first lady said.

Biden made the remark at the UnidosUS Annual Conference in San Antonio while she was praising the organization’s president.

This comes at a time when President Biden is trying to reach out to Hispanic voters since recent polls show his approval ratings among Hispanics have dropped.

The National Association of Hispanic Journalists released the following statement:

“Using breakfast tacos to try to demonstrate the uniqueness of Latinos in San Antonio demonstrates a lack of cultural knowledge and sensitivity to the diversity of Latinos in the region.”

The organization continued and said, “NAHJ encourages Dr. Biden and her speech writing team to take the time in the future to better understand the complexities of our people and communities.”
