IMMIGRATION NEWS: ONE PERSON´S OPINION

There was no American Dream for Joaquin Luna

Joaquin Luna

"Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain.

It's the time of year of gift giving. And all gifts will be opened except for one - Joaquin Luna's gift.
