Cindy Rodríguez Biography

Title:
Vice-President of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“When I think of all that undocumented workers do for us, I don’t feel fear. I feel gratitude. Without these workers, crops would rot, trash would pile up in offices, hotel dust bunnies would become dust mongrels, and restaurants would have to be refashioned as places where ‘u-cook, u-serve.'”
