Anthony has become proactive in his efforts to rally the Latino community to back the incumbent president, and recently filmed a 30-second video for the Obama campaign outlining his reasons why Obama deserves the Latino vote.

"We've got jobs, the economy, education, immigration," he says. "President Obama is on our side on all of it. We just need to make sure he gets four more years to make more progress." He continues, "Latinos are a force that can and will help decide this election, and it's a good thing that we've got so much to say, right? The president has our back, so it's time to let him know that we've got his. Go to Latinos.barackobama.com and get involved today. ¬°Estamos unidos!"
