Not one to hold back on serious subjects like immigration reform, Longoria spent much of the interview tackling many of the issues facing our our country today. Of course the conversation wasn’t entirely political, and by the end interview Longoria managed to get several laughs from the audience and the hosts. Check it out.

Longoria took the opportunity to discuss her experiences with immigration and border patrol.

Longoria called the immigration system “broken,” saying there were “a lot of moving pieces” which make it hard for anyone to understand how the process actually works.

Then Longoria told ‘The View’ panel her opinion on refugees that seek asylum in the U.S.

She brought up the point that many people, including those who arrive from Central America, leave their countries due to warlike conditions in their homeland. Longoria added, “This isn’t an issue of Democrats and Republicans […] for these people it’s an issue of life and death.”

She then turned her attention to President Trump’s approach to sanctuary cities.

Longoria told the audience she understands the U.S. is a nation of laws, and that these laws need to be protected. However, Longoria warned that “when you vilify an entire community” and defund a sanctuary city, you run the risk of hurting everyone — not just the few who are breaking rules — just to make a point.

‘The View’ then brought up something a little more light-hearted: the fact that IMDB lists her age online.

Longoria was asked what she thought about her age being listed on IMDB. Her response was classic Longoria: “it sucks.” After a few laughs from the audience, Longoria continued, “It doesn’t suck when you’re like 20, you’re like, ‘I don’t care.’ Now I’m over 40 and I’m like, ‘yeah, let’s take that down.'”

In the video, the boy claims the officer verbally attacked a female friend, which led to a confrontation between the two.



The officer struggled to detain to boy while the boy’s peers pleaded for the officer to let the boy go. The video shows several of the 13-year-old boy’s peers attempting to free him from the officer, who then reaches for his gun and fires it while still holding onto the boy. No one was hit by the gunfire. According to the Orange County Register, the event occurred on February 21 in a suburb of Anaheim, Calif.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the incident was sparked by “ongoing issues” with students walking on the officer’s front lawn.



Throughout the video, the 13-year-old being held against his will asks for the man to let him go. At 1:17 minutes into the above video, the off-duty officer tells the kid “you shouldn’t have made the threat that you were going to shoot me.” To which the teen replies, “I didn’t say that. Why are you lying. I said I’m going to ‘sue you.'”



The Los Angeles Police Department has launched an internal investigation into the event, according to the Los Angeles Times.
