Hispanic Republican candidates fired back Tuesday after first lady Jill Biden said that the Hispanic community was "unique" as "breakfast tacos." They also attacked her for speaking at a conference entitled "LatinX Incluxion."

Biden made the remarks at the 2022 UnidosUS Annnual Conference while speaking about UnidosUS President Raul Yzaguirre's work. Her press secretary issued an apology for the remark Tuesday.

"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.

After a great deal of backlash, Biden's press secretary, Michael LaRosa, tweeted, "The First Lady apologizes that her words conveyed anything but pure admiration and love for the Latino community."

"Even by going to an event called ‘LatinX Incluxion’, they are erasing our culture, our heritage, and mi gente’s beautiful language," Martinez Johnson added. 

"As a Hispanic woman who has a rich culture filled with ancestors who struggled against all manner of obstacles and poverty, it’s grossly offensive to compare my people to tacos,"
