(AP) Actress-turned-activist Eva Longoria says Republicans have a moral, political and economic duty to compromise on immigration.


Longoria is credited with helping bring Hispanic support to President Barack Obama. She says everyone should be, quote, engaged in a level that would affect policy because that's how our government is set up.


Hispanics voted 7 to 1 for Obama over his challenger, Republican Mitt Romney. Analysts say that while immigration is not the top issue for Hispanic voters, many were turned off by Republicans' hard-line stance on the issue.


During the GOP primary, Romney touted self-deportation as a solution to the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. And he said he would not let immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children to stay.


Longoria spoke on ABC's This Week.
