President Obama will meet with Eva Longoria and other “influential Hispanics” Thursday to discuss immigration reform.

The White House said Obama would meet with “influential Hispanics from across the country to discuss the importance of fixing the broken immigration system.” It said the discussion would focus on fostering “a constructive national conversation on this important issue as we work to build a bipartisan consensus in Congress.”
