The White House on Thursday sent out a press release this morning promoting President Obama's meeting with “influential Hispanics from across the country to discuss the importance of fixing the broken immigration system...”
Among the attendees highlighted by the White House as it works to address this serious national problem: actresses Eva Longoria, America Ferrera and Rosario Dawson; musician Emilio Estefan; model and television personality Lily Estefan; Univision hosts Maria Elena Salinas and Don Francisco; Telemundo anchors Vanessa Hauc and Jose Diaz-Balart; television host Barbara Bermudo and radio host Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo.
All this really tells us is that Obama is in full campaign mode. Having failed to do anything for Hispanics when Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress, Obama is now going to put on a masquerade that he intends to do something about immigration. And should he release a proposal, he'll use any opposition from House Republicans to fire up Hispanics for his reelection bid.
