Daddy Used to Be an Illegal Alien

By Allison Johnson 6-26-2008

Last week, I blogged about Dr. Alfredo Quiñones Hinojosa, a former migrant worker and now world-class brain surgeon. This man and the topic of immigration have sparked some heated conversations in our blog community. I invite you to find out more about Dr. Quiñones in Hopkins, a new miniseries on ABC that features Dr. Q and his colleagues inside and outside the operating room. Check out the clip below where he talks with his kids and the camera about being "illegal" and his path to citizenship. Hopkins airs tonight at 10 p.m./ 9 p.m. central.
