Betty on the News: Eva Longoria Shocked by Attitude Towards Immigrants
Eva Longoria dishes about immigration and healthcare
Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria Parker is more than just a pretty face. Last week during the PADRES CONTRA EL CANCER’S 9th Annual Fund Raising Gala in Hollywood – where Jessica Simpson’s best buddy Ken Paves was being honored for his involvement in the cancer community – Longoria spoke to Tarts about why she is “shocked” by America’s issue with immigration.
“The immigration issue is interesting because historically everyone has immigrated, this is a country of immigrants,” Longoria, the foundation’s national spokeswoman, stated. “So it kind of shocks me that people have such a vile reaction to immigrants when they provide a huge amount of services to our country, and particularly in agriculture.”
And while the actress has a lot to say when it comes to immigration reform, she realizes that healthcare should be the main focus right now.
“One topic at a time, [Obama] can tackle the health care issue, and I completely support him on what he is doing currently, with his options that he wants to provide, and … how he wants to fund it,” she declared. (FOXNews.com)
