Raul “El Gordo” De Molina – Rauly – recently hinted at the need for immigration reform in his New Year’s Eve interview with HuffPost Live. While the veteran entertainment journalist and paparazzo did not come out and demand comprehensive immigration reform, he did reference the thousands of families in the U.S. who have been separated, this year, because of deportations.
“Their sons are born in this country but they’re here illegally and they’re sent back to their countries. There are some [children] that stay here [but] the parents cannot stay because they do not have the papers and they [are deported], and the kids are U.S. citizens. And sometimes this also happens with people that their parents are U.S. citizens, their sons are not, and their grandsons are U.S. citizens. And I wish there would be someway that they all could be reunited,” he said.
