My mother of Guadalupe, we thank you for letting us cross the Arizona desert without being caught by the immigration police. We managed to fulfill our American dream and keep on going forward together, in family.

I’m infinitely thankful to Our Lady of Guadalupe for having heard my prayers when I asked her to be appointed as the United States ambassador in Mexico. It’s been an unforgettable experience for our family and we’ll always keep Mexico in our hearts.
