TESTIMONIALS

"When it comes to immigration, Enrique Morones is our moral authority "

− Assemblyman Gil Cedillo, Author, California Dream Act

"My Father, Cesar Chavez, led heroic grape workers around Delano, California, in the longest continuing farmworker strike in US history in a profound statement of non-cooperation with a farm labour system that exploits and impoverishes mostly immigrant farm workers. Today, courageous members of Border Angels are honouring the legacy of my father by making a powerful statement against inhumanity and oppression endured on our border by innocent immigrants. "

− Paul F. Chavez, President, Cesar Chavez Foundation

"Enrique Morones’ story is remarkable and needs to be told. He is a man of conscience who stands up to injustice by simply being on the side of love and human dignity. Let us all rejoice that an angel walks among us in this fight for immigration reform, truth and justice for all. "

− Josefina Lopez, playwright and activist, author of Real Women Have Curves

"Enrique Morones is the finest example of the Si Se Puede attitude in service to those who risk their lives in search of a better life. "

− Aurturo Rodriguez, President, United Farm Workers of America
