Actress Eva Longoria tells CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien that her role in the re-election campaign for President Obama will be to focus on women's issues and the Latino community.
When asked if President Obama’s record on immigration will be a problem in the general election, Longoria responds, “The economy is the number one issue that Latinos are concerned about. Immigration will come into play…. And even though that is true, there’ve been a lot of deportations, the president has refocused the resources of Department of Homeland Security to prioritize criminal deportations over Dreamers or families that need to stay united. And he’s proposed a lot of changes to keep families together.”
On Mitt Romney’s speech after winning Puerto Rico, Longoria says that he is “on the wrong side of every issue that is important to Latinos.”
Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs week morning from 7-9am ET on CNN.
