Gonzalez, who is pursuing a psychology major with a minor in Chicano studies, said he was born in Mexico; however, his parents brought him to the U.S. when he was 8 years old. Since then, he has struggled with his legal status.
Gonzalez said that more than granting legal status, an immigration reform would represent social equality in the country.
"We definitively need an immigration reform for everybody
because, as I said before, we need a chance to keep
moving forward as a community that doesn't leave
anyone behind," Gonzalez said.
