AIR DATE: October 4, 2011

Senior White House officials are in Las Vegas to reach out to the Hispanic community. The White House will hold a summit on Saturday, Oct. 1 with officials from the administration discussing issues such as the economy, immigration reform and education with Las Vegas Latinos.

We'll talk with one White House officials about the issues going on at Saturday's summit.
