Chicago Born Illinois National Guard soldier Hector Nunez recently returned from Mexico with his wife and son after Congressman Luis Gutierrez intervened in an effort to secure a humanitarian visa for Nunez’s wife, Rosa. Nunez is a valued member of the SmartSource Rentals Chicago branch operation and is currently preparing to leave for Afghanistan. His return to Chicago with his wife and son is truly a cause for joy this holiday season.
On the advice of an attorney, Nunez’s wife Rosa, who came to the US when she was six years old, returned to Mexico a few months ago in an effort to obtain legal status. The couple has been married since 2005 and has a two year old son, Jason. Nunez states that his wife was deported after receiving poor legal advice. After arriving in Mexico, Rosa was told it would be close to 10 years before she would be able to return to Chicago. Friends and family enlisted the help of Congressman Luis Gutierrez to help in securing a one-year humanitarian visa.
On December 20, 2010, the Nunez family returned from Mexico to a welcomed homecoming at O’Hare’s Terminal 5.
