President Obama is scheduled to meet today with "influential Hispanics from across the country on immigration," according to the White House press release.

The participants that they highlight as attending? Most of them are journalists or in the entertainment industry. I understand how that fits the "influential" part, but I'm not really sure how this is going to fix our immigration problem, and I can't help but think our president's time could be better spent actually FIXING the problem.

The list via the White House:

Jose Diaz-Balart

Barbara Bermudo

Rosario Dawson

Emilio Estefan

Lily Estefan

America Ferrera

Don Francisco

Vanessa Hauc

Maria Teresa Kumar

Eva Longoria

Maria Elena Salinas

Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo
