Maybe he could talk about his upbringing and how he became the -- Well -- I was born in Mexico City I'm the first of four Brothers and and my sister -- this.

So when I decide to become a journalist I want to be a free journalists that he wanted to censor -- -- -- the -- likens it to the states. He makes a lot of sense to be in this country and say the things. There -- -- all the watched it would've stayed in Mexico.

Into us we long process and I started death I -- a student and I thought it was going to be only one year. And after one year I -- -- They Univision television station and -- son Dennis.

And and I can just imagine what happens -- -- who are undocumented to cool calm here. And their -- much more difficult than what he was for me by my -- -- eased that. This country treats doing across the same way and with the same generosity. That -- treated me. It's our next question comes from -- Thomas Nixon and he says what American TV anchors did you admire when you are considering a career in broadcasting.

They can make it without the Hispanic vote actually know what can make it to the White House without the Hispanic vote and unless republic -- supporting immigration reform. It's going to be impossible for them to get a a high percentage of the Latino. So. I I think. Latinos will -- -- they supported immigration reform. But -- many of them continue.
