“I think maybe his family came from the Basque are of either Spain or France. The name Esquivel is of Basque lineage.”
Actually, Sal’s dad was Mexican, probably Spanish decended.
[snip from an article on my FB page]
Once in a while, a decent politician steps forward to turn into a Statesman. Such is Dist. 6 Representative Sal Esquivel of Oregon. Recently he was on Neil Cavuto, doing what he does best, looking out for US! I have known Sal Esquivel since we were school mates. He’s the real deal. Sal’s ‘Pop’ as he called him, came LEGALLY to the USA under the Bracero program and taught his kids to be Americans first. 100%.
In an interview for an article meant to pull at your heart strings (Driving while Brown) about Latino’s’ thinking they get targeted for tickets, Rep. Esquivel said:
Maybe they drive different in Mexico, said Esquivel, a Republican from Medford, whose father came to Southern Oregon from Mexico as a guest worker in 1945 and later became a U.S. citizen. If they break the law, they break the law. Thats the end of the discussion as far as Im concerned.
