While touting the appointments of Salazar and Solis, the chief of staff said it is Obama's policies that will demonstrate the president's commitment to the Hispanic community.

At the same time, Emanuel was unwilling to say when Obama might propose the kind of comprehensive immigration reform that could offer a path to legalization for the estimated 12 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States.

The important thing, he said, is that the inclusion of legal migrants' children in SCHIP "represents a change of course."

Emanuel made it clear that for now, the overriding priority for the Obama administration is winning congressional approval for the economic stimulus plan, which has already passed the House but faces tough sledding in the Senate, where the Democrats have a much narrower majority.
