Happy Cinco de Mayo! Here are 5 facts about the day

Bronx residents flocked to the restaurant Cinco

In Chandler, Arizona, there are annual Chihuahua dog races on Cinco de Mayo.

The Battle of Puebla took place on Cinco de Mayo back in 1862 during the French-Mexican war.

This year, some immigrant enclaves have canceled or reduced Cinco de Mayo celebrations over fears that party-goers could be exposed to possible deportation.

"True friendship, they say, must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity to be worthy of its name", said Ambassador Gutierrez during the Cinco De Mayo event, referring to the tensions.

The Cinco de Mayo and Seis Adoption Fiesta is valid only and 6, 2017, so visit the Humane Society of Central Oregon (61170 SE 27 St., Bend)! You can start with $5 margaritas, or go for the low-sodium option of the $3 Corona special - and if you are with your amigos, grab a $15 bucket of the golden Mexican lager. You know, you wouldn't walk into a Mexican restaurant like that.

Last year Mr Trump tweeted out a photo of him eating a taco bowl (which is not a traditional Mexican dish) on Cinco de Mayo with the statement "I love Hispanics".

During a reception at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building adjacent to the White House, Pence highlighted the "many contributions to the life of this nation" from those with Mexican heritage. Think of it as the Mexican Agincourt.

I was going to fire Comey no matter what
Trump has violated so numerous norms of the office of President that some people may see this latest insult as of a piece. Comey had said during a congressional hearing in March that he saw no evidence to support that claim.

But guess what? If you're not a total asshole who doesn't give a shit, you can avoid insulting an entire culture.

This was an extreme instance of cultural appropriation and direct racism.

In Colorado Springs, a nonprofit group that provides scholarships for Hispanic students is holding a Cinco de Mayo "Fiesta & Car Show" featuring mariachi music and dances. Mexico was not having a lot of success at that time.

"If anything we just need to be coming together in unison and celebrate today for what it is", Arreola said. You can research authentic recipes and where they came from.

Some even celebrate with Chihuahua races: One U.S. city celebrates Cinco de Mayo with a Chihuahua race. Knowing the history behind the holiday makes the celebration all the more meaningful. Instead, the country wanted to seize the Mexican land. "We support voting rights, immigration reform and education in the community".
