Obama Casts Eva Longoria As Immigration Advisor

May 1, 2011 § Leave a comment

President Obama is turning to Hollywood for the best possible advice on all things immigration. And he’s contacting all the pros: Eva Longoria, America Ferrera, and Rosario Dawson. Obama’s slipping grip on the key Hispanic voting community may be a reason why. The White House had previously announced that Obama would meet with “influential Hispanics to discuss the importance of fixing the broken immigration system.” The brain trust that met with Obama included the following renowned immigration “experts”: Longoria of ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” fame, “Ugly Betty” show star Ferrera, “Sin City” movie actress Dawson and Emilio Estefan, the producer-musician husband of singer Gloria Estefan. Also invited to advise the president were Los Angeles radio show host Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo, Univision hosts Don Francisco and Maria Elena Salinas and Telemundo anchors Vanessa Hauc and Jose Diaz-Balart, the brother of Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart and former Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart, both Florida Republicans. Diaz-Balart commented that, when compared with other issues such as healthcare, Obama has not accomplished much when it comes to immigration reform in the last 2 years. “The silence is not golden,” Diaz-Balart told reporters, adding, “I think there is a sense of ‘Man, you promised us, you had the majority in the House and the Senate, and you spent so much political capital on other issues when you promised us and we came through for you.’ I think the president is probably aware of that.” (newsmax)
