Mr Maldonado said the members, many of whom were Obama-era appointees, were given no reason for their dismissal.
PACHA members have had problems with the way Trump runs the council since he took office.

Impulse Group DC, a social and entertainment-based HIV awareness and advocacy group with particular focus on outreach to queer communities of color, sent out a press release heavily criticizing Trump's previous proposals to cut federal HIV programs, including the president's call to eliminate the Minority AIDS Initiative. Neither statement includes a explicit mention of LGBT people, who are considered to have face the brunt of the disease.
The White House did not immediately respond for comment.
She did not address when the administration might begin to make new appointments to the council, which can number up to 25 members.
