Thanks to Donald Trump's racially-charged rhetoric, he and Hillary Clinton are being shunned from next month's gathering of prominent Latino leaders in Orlando.

National Council of La Raza President Janet Murguía announced Wednesday that neither presumptive presidential nominee was extended an invitation to July's NCLR Annual Conference. The country's largest Hispanic civil rights group routinely welcomes candidates from both political parties, but Trump's "indiscriminate vilification of an entire community and numerous other communities" has made it difficult for NCLR leadership to invite him.

"Mr. Trump has - without relent and without apology - engaged in a concerted effort to denigrate and demonize not just immigrants, but the entire 5 million-plus Latinos in this country," Murguía said in a press release. "Simply put, Mr. Trump has not earned the privilege of our platform."

The NCLR did not invite Clinton out of fairness, and because they believe the electoral process "is best served when both parties are competing for the Latino vote."
