President Obama is reaching out to the Hispanic community today, launching a website specifically for Latinos.
“We’re not done until we fix our broken immigration system to keep families together and make sure people who were brought here as children have a chance to earn their citizenship,” Obama declares in a video that highlights the launch of the website.
The site reminds Latinos that Obama has “kept nearly 2 million Latinos out of poverty, doubled the amount spent on Pell Grants so 150,000 more Latino students can afford their educations” and promises that, “by 2014, Obamacare will provide health coverage to 9 million Latinos who are currently uninsured.”
Tonight, the site encourages Hispanics to host an online party with Hispanic comedian George Lopez, who in 2007, controversially lashed out at ABC for cancelling his network comedy show.
“So a Chicano can’t be on TV, but a caveman can?” Lopez said at the time, referring to the networks short-lived Caveman show, “And a Chicano with an audience already?”
“TV just became really, really white again,” he added.
