WASHINGTON (CNN) - Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee for president, is looking to shore up support - especially from Latinos.
During the primaries on Super Tuesday, he received only 35 percent of Latinos' vote, while former rival Sen. Hilary Clinton's received 63 percent.
"There really wasn't an opportunity for Barack Obama to introduce himself to Latino voters.
"He needs to get out there and do that and he needs to listen to Latino voters and understand what they care about," said Arturo Vargas, of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials.
WATCH: The debate over immigration
Obama has supported President Bush-backed immigration legislation, which would have increased funding and improved border security technology, improved enforcement of existing laws, and provided a legal path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants.
The Illinois senator also voted to authorize construction of a 700-mile fence along the U.S.-Mexican border.
The Obama campaign said in a statement: "It's not that we will grant citizenship, but we strongly support requiring them to legalize their status and allowing them to earn their right to commit to this country and eventually become citizens."
