Eva Longoria Emerging as a Serious Immigration Activist

Eva Longoria the activist?

If you’re wondering what Eva Longoria has been up to, listen up. The former Desperate Housewife has taken up the cause of advocating for immigration reform. The pint-sized actress’ stance on immigration is that the Republican Party has a moral, political and economic obligation to compromise on U.S. immigration policy and reform. She believes in that notion so much that she is willing to lend her celebrity to raise awareness around the issue.

This isn’t her first foray into activism. During the 2012 presidential race, Longoria served as President Obama’s campaign co-chairman. She delivered a wildly popular speech at the Democratic National Convention during the same year that she spoke out against Republican Mitt Romney’s proposal for a tax break for the wealthy. One of her most famous lines was that she didn’t need the tax break but, “the Eva Longoria who worked at Wendy’s flipping burgers — she needed a tax break.”

In last year’s election, Hispanics spoke up with their votes, favoring President Obama at a margin of 7 to 1. Some say that immigration was not the primary issue for many Hispanic voters, but a great many were turned off by Republicans’ unwillingness to budge on the subject.  Longoria revealed her stance as an immigration activist as a guest on the news show This Week, where she said she hoped that in his second term Obama will focus more on immigration reform, particularly the Dream Act.

The actress-turned-activist spoke about the immigration process and its complicated nature. “People say, ‘Oh, get in the back of the line,’ [but] people don’t realize there’s a hundred lines to get into…It’s a very broken system.”

    The Imperial court of President Elect Obama will be in session very shortly and many issues are on the Congressional list. Heed the warning that in the coming days that he is adamant on pushing through some form of amnesty for the 10 to 20 million plus illegal aliens already in the United States. The majority of people who remain unconcerned with politics, means that that they are unaware that conventional methods of being voted on in the House of Representatives, is being bypassed under this regime and not following the edicts of the U.S. Constitution? First it was the lone Obama authority to give a free pass to children of illegal aliens, which has been called the Dream Act. With the origin of the Dream Act which is children being smuggled unborn or in infancy across the thin, poorly guarded borders and agents unable to detect pregnant women arriving by plane from foreign countries that have arrived here for decades. Once on our soil they can gain as an inheritance citizenship for their progeny, which really was for the emancipation of slaves after the union and gray war. Americans must take fervent notice that their futures are in peril, with even more encouragement of illegal migrants and immigrants finding away to gain unauthorized entrance into our sovereign nation. In this 113 session of Congress the ardent listeners in other countries are going to try and reach the mainland.

    Birthrights Citizenship is under constant bombardment by activists who believe an amendment to the 14th Amendment will save ultimately TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS. Citizenship given to children upon arrival is skyrocketing in free baby deliveries, free health care for all family members, and free education for all the children born now and later. Only the American citizens can financially reprieve us from this constant threat of females smuggling in their unborn and the U.S. Taxpayer carry the financial burden—without end. Then once the child applies automatic citizenship, it’s hard to return the Mother to the country where she belongs. It’s like a wordless guidebook of how to beat the welfare and immigration system, which eventually leaves to ILLEGAL CHAIN MIGRATION of the extended family. After more pregnancies the mother can collect substantial amounts of money for each child, plus low income housing. Then once settled, more relatives vanquish the border or alight undetected from a plane, this one way visitor, moves in with the family already here, finds a job and vanishes.

    Then we have the unknown numbers of illegal aliens in the workplace, while at least 23 million American and residents are either looking for a job, or have no choice to work in part-time employment. This should not continue and citizens an permanent resident holding green cards, should contact their Senators or Congressmen/women and demand they bring to the floor of Congress, the mandatory E-Verify “LEGAL WORKFORCE BILL”, so Washington must act of ridding illegal aliens who have your jobs. You can stand firm for all Americans by either using the Internet, your telephone book to see who is you servant locally, state or federal and make these laws active. Stop the special interests and Washington from selling you out. LEARN A LOT MORE AT JUDICIAL WATCH AND NUMBERSUSA.


    ATTENTION: Obama lets Chinese own U.S. energy resources.
    Beijing is acquiring major ownership in oil, natural gas across nation. (Dr. Jerome R. Corsi) – The Obama administration is quietly allowing China to acquire major ownership interests in oil and natural gas. The decision to allow China to compete for U.S. oil and natural gas resources appears to stem from a need to keep Beijing economically interested in lending to the U.S. The Obama administration has run $1-trillion-plus annual federal budget deficits since taking office that likely will continue in the second term. As World Net Daily reported Monday, Beijing has been developing a proposal in which real estate on American soil owned by China would be set up as “development zones” to establish Chinese-owned businesses and bring in its citizens to the U.S. to work. All this and more will be revealed at TEA PARTY.ORG.
