Immigration reform activists demonstrating with a widely publicized food fast got some encouragement Tuesday afternoon from the White House via first lady Michelle Obama:

Mrs. Obama's message echoed comments her husband made in San Francisco earlier this week. “I want to say to Eliseo Medina, my friend from SEIU, and the other fasters who are there as we speak," he said, referring to a group of fasters gathered on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., "I want them to know we hear you. We’re with you. The whole country hears you."

Vice President Joe Biden also paid homage to the protestors: "As my father would say, come hell or high water, we’re going to win this."
