“We salute the more than 62 million Latinos who help make our Nation stronger every day. Latino history is American history. It is a story of hard work, family, faith, pride, and possibility, and it is proof that there is nothing we cannot do when we do it together,” said President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. Click here to read the full 2023 Presidential Proclamation.
