Cortes came on to President Trump's National Hispanic Advisory Council in 2016. 
 
Fox News and Fox Business have been active in hiring contributors as the new administration takes office. 
 
In the past week, in addition to Cortes, Fox announced the signing of Nigel Farage, the former U.K. Independence Party leader and Brexit supporter, and Marie Harf, a Democratic adviser and former deputy spokesperson for the Obama State Department.
