Eva Longoria Slams Romney on DREAM

Eva Longoria Slams Romney on DREAM


Actress, philanthropist and co-chair of Obama for America 2012 Eva Longoria recently took Mitt Romney to task for “calling the Arizona immigration law a ‘model’ for the rest of the country” and “campaigning with its author.”

Longoria called both moves “polarizing to Latinos,” adding: “He would veto the DREAM Act if he were in office.”

“That is dangerous for our community,” Longoria said of Romney.

Longoria’s appearance comes on the heels of Mitt Romney’s decisive victory in Puerto Rico and his subsequent assertion that he can win Latino voters. “Those people who don’t think that Latinos will vote for Republicans need to take a look at Puerto Rico and see there that conservative principles and Latino voters go together,” Romney told a crowd in Illinois. “I intend to become our nominee, and I intend to get Latino voters to vote for a Republican and take back the White House.”

On Obama, Longoria praised the Affordable Care Act, saying women “are charged more because we go to the doctor more, and the Affordable Care Act will eliminate the gender rating.”

Although research has shown that no one celebrity has major clout within the Latino community, Longoria has proved herself to be an effective messenger, especially on issues of importance to women and children.

  1. I live in Arizona and my father is from Mexico, I am proud to say when my father came into this country he did it legally, but that does not change my opion on immigration. It is not the kids fault if their parent brought them here when they were just babies, they didn't ask to be brought here why should they be punished for their parents actions. People have to remember how our country started the only people on this land was native Americans and Mexicans then the Mayflower showed up and those people pushed their way into others homes. What about the Africans that were brought here as slaves did anyone ask them if they wanted to come? no but they are legal here in the states huh, that should be the same for these young people, no if, ands, or buts were put when the Africans were brought here and made legal. These young people want to better themselves for what ever reason why can't we help them do that and in return we will gain from their advancements in the econmonic sector.

  2. Taking courses In Chicano studies … What do they teach in "Chicano Studies"? According to the book that Longoria mentioned on the Kimmel show, apparently they teach reconquista, race pride, Aztlan and a host of other anti-American BS. Longoria has a history of being pro-illegal alien, so most of this should come as no shock.__Debbie Schlussel passes along some quotes form the Kimmel appearance.__She's taking Chicano Studies “so I can be educated and have a background in my activism in the Latino community,” Longoria told Kimmel. "Yeah, I lost my book. And I had everyone on 'The Desperate Housewives' set looking for my copy of 'Occupied America.'”__The book Longoria is referring to is Occupied America by Rodolfo Acuna. As I just recently covered in my post on Raza Studies, It is a book loaded with references to how the southwest was "stolen" from Mexico. Under the guise of a history book, it attempts to enrage "Chicanos" at the supposed injustices they have faced.__Nowhere in the book is there any personal responsibility of Mexico and its oppression of its people. Everything is blamed on the bad 'ol USA._ _

  3. I'm still waiting to hear from those, especially the Hollywood types, to explain to us how Latino "issues" differ from those that concern the rest of us. Ms. Longoria doesn't have the guts to come right out say what's really upsetting her, i.e., that the sovereign American people have the nerve to demand enforcement of those immigration laws that were created to protect American workers. Do the "issues" on her list include wanting to know why, when 20 million Americans are unable to find full-time employment, our federal government is allowing 7 million illegal aliens to continue working in the construction, manufacturing, transportation and service industries? And before anybody gets the thought to argue that these are jobs "Americans won't do,." he/she should know that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says 70 percent of these jobs are already being done by Americans.

    I'm fresh out for tolerance for illegal aliens and their advocates who are telling the rest of us that the rule of law doesn't concern them and that we owe them respect and dignity.

  4. I believe we should do something to help these children. They did not have a choice to come here. Their parents brought them and most will tell you they do not even remember the journey. If we could pass anything to help them I think we should. These children should have the right to become citizens or even legal residences without having to leave the only country they have ever truly known. People are worried about this being amnesty or that this will make the invasion of illegals worse but it doesn’t have to be that way. If we passed something that stated children brought to our country as minors before the date of (whatever date it would pass) can apply for green cards/legal residence/ or citizenship after completing a college degree or at least 4 years in the military with an honorable discharge, if they have a high school diploma or GED, no criminal record, and if they can speak and write fluent English. It should also include a plan to strengthen the border control and something about how these students cannot dwell on federal funds. Everybody is worried about different things. I don’t see why we cannot work together as a country and help these poor children!

  5. Mr. Gorak, I have so much respect and appreciation of your comments. I, too am tired of the whining by people who came here from breaking the law and stealing the welfare benefits that are intended for destitute American citizens. I am tired of American workers being discriminated against because they don't speak Spanish. And I am sick of the LIE that they are doing the jobs that "Americans are too lazy to do". I, personally, would do ANY job that is legal to feed my family and I know other hard-working Americans would do the same.

  6. Mr. Gorak

    If I’m doing my math right, 70% of 20 million is 14 million. This leaves us with 6 million of which the 7 million illegal immigrants fill up and only leaves a remainder of 1 million; which if I’m reading your text correctly, you feel illegal immigrants are “stealing”. Now let’s all be straight up and honest here, if americans really wanted these jobs they would take them. Everybody knows an illegal worker can’t do anything about it; if anybody thinks otherwise then they haven’t cared enough to do their research.

    People need to stop labeling illegal immigrants that qualify for the DREAM act as theives. We don’t steal your money, we PAY for our education. We don’t use your taxes, we PAY just as much as you. We don’t “steal” your jobs, we’re simply competing to stay relavent. Is it my fault I have more skills than you’re average american? No, it’s not. I learned these skills because I want them bad enough to sacrifice everything in order to acquire them.

    Let’s say the DREAM Act were to be approved, what exactly do you think I’m going to do? Rip the government off? No, I’m going to pursue my educational goal, and since I come from a low income family I’m most likley going to need a loan for that, just like everyone else.

    I’m 20 and I have a job which to most americans would be a career, I’m attending and paying every single cent of my education, and I’m a law abiding citizen with a clean record. What is it your afraid of?

    • I totally support all your arguments, but if you're twenty and are getting an education like you say you are, please get "your" and "you're" straight. People will laugh when they read your rhetorical, "Is it my fault I have more skills than you're average american" because I think the average american can at least write that sentence correctly.

  7. im tired of hearing close minded people saying o they are criminals and dont diserve anything but if feeding there familys and giving their kids a good education is a crime than lock me up to people dont understand how hard it is to enter this country just because we have gotten eveything to live a good life we have to let everyone else fuck themselves if ur kids were starveing and wanted a better future for them any good family person would cross that border money talks so does hunger us as americans dont understand that so we have no room to judge for me let those good kids and people study and work make something of themselfs they arent bothering me or anyone educate yourself first then tell these kids ur a criminal for getting an education and trying to have a good future wow how stupid does that sound by the way undocumented people do pay taxes and we all have people in our race we arent proud of so no ones perfect i would never tell anyone to get out of the country that didnt diserve it and these kids have the right for an education theyve come this far lets let them continue 🙂

  8. I support all of your arguments, but if you are0 & are 640-822 exam getting an schooling like you say you are, get 640-822 practice tests "your" & "you're" straight. People will laugh when they read your rhetorical, "Is it http://www.examsmafia.com/646-206.html my fault I have more skills than you are average american" because I think the average american can at least <a href="http://www.examsmafia.com/646-206.html” target=”_blank”>www.examsmafia.com/646-206.html write that sentence correctly.
