Lupe Moreno, Latina Minuteman


In 2005 Lupe Moreno captivated the attention of the media through her actions: she enrolled in the Minuteman movement and camped at the San Ysidro border.

Binoculars in one hand and the American flag in the other, Lupe was determined to stop any undocumented immigrant trying to cross into the United States.

She spoke exclusively with Guadalupe Vicon and revealed an unexpected truth: her father was one of the first “coyotes” (smugglers or human traffickers) on the California-Mexico border.

The story was aired by Telemundo Network.
