Immigration Border Crisis

Latino Singer Lupillo Rivera Confronts Anti-Immigrant Protesters

The brother of the late banda singer Jenni Rivera, Lupillo Rivera, showed his support for migrant families and children by confronting California protesters who blocked buses carrying the migrants. Rivera carried a sign saying “Americans Are Immigrants" and waded into the protesters. According to a Telemundo report, he was spit at by protestors who didn’t want the migrants in Murrieta, California and blocked the buses carrying the migrants. Rivera, also a singer of banda with several recordings, shouted at the protesters that the migrants who come to the U.S. are the cooks, hotel workers and baby sitters. His protest came the day before what would have been his sister’s 45th birthday. Jenni Rivera died in a plane crash in December 2012.
