American Grit gives you an unfiltered look at current events and the battle for immigration reform.
I have a unique perspective on the issue after spending nearly a decade covering immigration along the U.S. – Mexico border as a news correspondent for CBS, NBC, and iHeartRadio. I’ve also worked on both sides of the issue on Capitol Hill, behind the scenes as a lobbyist and advocate.
My story has been featured in the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times and the Daily Beast.
I have held the hands of families who have lost loved ones, I’ve marched in the streets of Washington, D.C and I’ve gone undercover into Mexico to investigate the drug cartels.
America is a country of immigrants, who have had the ‘grit’ to get here and make it.
