Yesterday, Colombian pop star Shakira did what many of us wish we could do: went to a meeting inside the White House and pushed President Obama on immigration reform. According to America’s Voice:
During a meeting at the White House about the developments to combat child poverty in Latin America, Pop singer Shakira and the President discussed immigration reform.
The White House response?
White House officials told Shakira that they hope to reach an agreement this year with the Republican Party to legalize undocumented immigrants, her representative said.
The White House should be ready and willing to reconfirm their commitment to this issue, considering the tens of thousands of people who will be marching on Washington, DC this March 21st.
