Eva Longoria has had quite a busy week! Not only did she attend President Obama's inauguration, host the Latino inaugural event at the Kennedy Center over the weekend and attend a handful of parties in Washington D.C. but the former Desperate Housewives hottie has been carving a name for herself as a political activist.
Eva covered the front page of the Wall Street Journal last week and she also chatted with George Stephanopoulos on This Week to discuss the importance of changing immigration laws.
"I'm trying to do my part as a citizen and my part as a Hispanic and as a woman and as an American," she said. "So, you know, I enjoy it. I think everybody should be civically engaged in a level that would affect policy. That's the point; that's how our government is set up ... What I am hopeful about is that this administration--and particularly President Obama--sees that immigration is an economic issue. It's also, for me, a humanitarian issue. But if we approach it economically, we have to understand that we are dependent upon a labor in this country, specifically agriculture, to provide low-cost products, and they're jobs that nobody else -- nobody else is doing."
Good for her!
