Alberto Gonzales on Immigration

Attorney General

 


3 out of 4 of his grandparents were illegal immigrants

Gonzales was born in San Antonio, Texas, and raised in Humble, near Houston. He was the second of eight children born to Pablo and Maria Gonzales. His father, who died in 1982, was a construction worker. In a television interview, Gonzales told Wolf Blitzer on CNN that no immigration documentation exists for three of his grandparents and thus probably entered and resided in the United States illegally.

Grandparents came from Mexico, illegally, for American dream

Yesterday on CNN, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales admitted that he doesn’t know if his grandparents came from Mexico to the United States legally or illegally, but that his family’s story is the “American dream.”

Gonzales’s story contrasts with the right-wing rhetoric protesting illegal--and often legal--immigration.
