Hernandez is originally from California and his parents are Native people from Mexico, who worked as farm workers all their lives to give their children a better future. Jose himself worked in the fields along other Indigenous workers.
NASA has reacted cowardly and said that Hernandez was speaking on his own and his words don't reflect the position of that institution, but the astronaut of Native Mexican heritage said to Los Angeles Times:
"Having 12 million undocumented people here means there's something wrong with the system, and the system needs to be fixed."Watch this video where Jose Hernandez presents himself before the mission he took part of:
Thank you Jose Hernandez, we need more leaders like your defending the rights of our Indigenous peoples who are undocumented in the U.S.
