She sounded thirsty
I figured since I love singing with my girls, I thought I’d partner with BAND-AID® Brand #StuckOnMe Video Contest and give you all a shot at sharing your version of the bandaid song and hopefully you can win a $10k giftcard. #ad The link to the cover is on the description. Good luck!
UPDATE: I spoke to my mom from the Arizona detention Center today. She told me to let you all know that you are welcome to send her letters and she would that. She would really love that. I know some of you mentioned it so i opened in up. In fact I encourage you to send her a letter. If she can receive your letters, they could help show that she is loved and needed in our community. It will make those heavy chains on her hands a little bit lighter. Be honest and share on the letter how important she was in your life (if you knew her of course) and how having her back with us can be a good thing. I will write my own as well. Be careful with what you write as all letters are read by the officials. But dont be afraid. It might be a good idea for them to see that my mom is loved here in the US and other parts of the world, that we’re in solidarity. All this is just a suggestion, in case there are some of you that would love to help make my momma smile 😊. Once again thank you.

One of the greatest joys in life is being able to celebrate and be truly happy for others. I’m proud of my friend Agustin for overcoming the greatest of obstacles in life and making a positive example of himself for others. Graduated from lawschool and recently appointed District Attorney, it’s amazing to check in with him and hear how he’s navigating life. It was good to see you for lunch bro. @chicanolawyer #orgullochicano #paraadelante
I just finished watching @mayorjuliancastro and Dan Patrick’s Texas immigration debate. My mother was on my mind the whole time. Here are these two men in suits talking about what is raw and real for my family. I’ve lived what they debate about. My mother is in an Arizona CELL living the century-long immigration debate, fighting for her life. I highly recommend you watch and listen to this debate to get a better understanding of what immigration reform truly entails.
