A major Spanish-language publication makes its pick for President.

"El Diario" says it is endorsing Barack Obama.

The newspaper praised the president's first term in office, saying he "rolled up his sleeves on all fronts," including the economy and health care.

"El Diario" added, "Obama also delivered on key commitments: He brought U.S. troops home from Iraq and oversaw the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks."

The endorsement however does not come without criticism for both candidates for their work on immigration.

"El Diario" says Obama has not fulfilled his 2008 promise of immigration reform, in part due to Republicans in Congress.

However, the paper claims reform is less likely to occur under a Mitt Romney presidency.

The GOP candidate has promised to veto the Dream Act and discontinue Obama's deferred deportation program.
