Obama’s Exclusive Interview with La Opinión

La Opinión, Posted: Jun 25, 2008

LOS ANGELES—Sen. Barack Obama told Spanish-language La Opinión in an exclusive interview that he will work hard for Latinos. Obama said both he and Sen. Clinton believe in comprehensive immigration reform and, he added, “unlike John McCain, I haven’t backed away from working toward a path to legalization.” Obama wants to address concrete problems like the dropout rate, failing school infrastructures, and inadequate health care that hard working Latinos face. He supports legislation similar to the DREAM Act that gives all students a chance to go to college, Obama said. On immigration, the Democrat put border security, and the security of jobs and decent wages on both sides of the border on his agenda. He also stressed the need to reform the immigration system to end the 10-year wait that legal migrants endure for processing. Those undocumented workers already here will need to learn English, pay fines and taxes, and get in line to become legal, he said.
