Obama knows how important is the Latino vote, and he makes it a priority to meets leaders of this powerful voting Group. Obama addressed National Council of La Raza convention, which has attracted more than 20,000 people to the San Diego Convention Center. He promised today he would make immigration reform a top priority of his first year in office if he is elected president.
He also said:
“I think it’s time for a president who won’t walk away from something as important as comprehensive reform just because it becomes politically unpopular,” the Illinois senator said. “I will make it a top priority in my first year as the president of the United States of America.”
