He went from undocumented farm worker to neurosugeon

Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa crossed the border, worked as a farm worker and went to become a Brain Surgeon. Is that the American Dream of what?

You can read and her his story on NPR . You can hear it from him in this video.

In my previous post I talked about the Dream Act, a piece f legislation that would give talented people the opportunity to do what Dr. Quinones Hinojosa did, and become all that they can be, and improve our country, save lives, advance science, and more. They could even go back to their ancestral home and improve life for others, so they don’t need to come in pursue of that dream. You can read more about it here.
