Eva Longoria appeared as a guest on ‘The View’ to discuss a variety of topics with the show’s hosts. 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.'”
