“You know, I grew up with a grandmother who came from Mexico when she was 7 years old with her little sister because their parents had died. And they came across the border at Eagle Pass, Texas, ended up in the west side of San Antonio. She worked her whole life as a maid, a cook, and a babysitter, because she never finished elementary school. And just two generations later, one of her grandsons—you know, my twin brother, Joaquin, who is here—is a member of the United States Congress, and the other grandson is running for president of the United States. This country has been blessed by immigrants throughout the years. And, you know, this president wants us to believe that we have to choose between border security and compassion.”
