After less than a year of clearing tables, Hernandez said he worked up the courage to ask his manager for a promotion to waiting tables. Hernandez said his boss, the owner of La Fiesta (who declined an interview for this story through Nike Air Max 90 Femme Hernandez), saw something in him and encouraged him. But he also issued a stern warning to Hernandez. “I’ll Nike Air Max 90 Dámské give you a chance,” Hernandez recalled his manager telling him, “but if you don’t understand something do not try to figure it out. Ask me … Don’t assume they want beans when they Nike Internationalist Femme probably want rice. Just ask.”Hernandez said his English was still extremely rough. He was nervous but determined. At times, it was even a bit embarrassing the things he had to do to get by, but Hernandez said he found that most people responded well if he kept a sense of humor about it.Hernandez said that when he first started waiting tables, if he wasn’t sure if someone wanted chicken or beef, he would ask them to clarify by holding his fingers up over his head like bull horns or by flapping his arms around like chicken wings — and telling the customers Nike Air Pegasus 89 Womens to pick which one they wanted. They would laugh, and he’d get the order right. Things got a little Nike Air Max 90 Mujer Negras easier every day at work, but those were the lighter moments.About five years after he arrived in the U.S., Hernandez said, his sister died, on Dec. 5, 2002. His mom called him Adidas Superstar Dámské černé two days prior and told him that if he wanted to say goodbye, he would have to make it home fast. She was fading and the doctors didn’t expect her to live through the week. He caught a flight out of St. Louis that same day, he said. “If you don’t have documentation you can get home, but not back,” said Hernandez, who traveled with a Mexican passport.
Hernandez made it home the day she died. “I held her hand as she took her last breath,” he said. He stayed through the funeral the next day, and then started trying to figure out how he would return. Asics Gel Lyte iii Femme Bleu Hernandez said that being there with her, he once again felt reassured that he had done the right thing.But he also knew he wasn't going back to Mexico. Hernandez said that although he came here for his sister, and didn't intend to stay, life happened. By that point, he had bought Nike Air Max 2017 Womens a house, the first he had ever owned. “So now I had to get back for personal reasons,” he said. Hernandez said he didn’t want his home to go into foreclosure and lose it. Plus, he was starting to make a few friends here. He was having success at work, and the money was good.And this time, he had a plan to cross the border to return to Southern Illinois. Hernandez said he had randomly met a gentleman in Marion a few months before his sister died, who he came to learn was a “coyote” who helped people get across the border. He was walking alone on Main Street, by a music store in Marion not far from the railroad tracks.“I can spot a Latino person from a mile away,” Hernandez said. Hernandez said he didn’t know it at the time, but later came to learn the gentleman had recently been arrested. Though he was released, his truck was Nike Air Max 90 Womens White seized. Remembering all the people who helped him along his journey, Hernandez, who had a car by this point, said he felt compelled to pick him up. “He didn’t look like he was from Marion.
That was No. 1. I’d never seen his face before. The look on his face was, ‘I’m lost,’” Hernandez recalled. “I told him to get in the car.”Hernandez said that he put the gentleman up at his house for a few days. He gave him food and extra clothes, and before he left, Hernandez said the man gave him his number and told him to call if he ever needed his assistance. “All I can remember is his name — Jesus — and we called him Choochoo,” he said. Hernandez said he took that man’s number with him to Mexico, and he called when he was ready to return to Marion after his sister’s funeral.This time, he said, he crossed the border through an American Nike Air Max 90 Dámské Indian reservation in Arizona. “The Indians from Arizona, they cross the border and can freely,” Adidas Superstar Dam Rosa he said. “They don’t get searched. It wasn’t like a big port of entry. It was like in the woods, in the middle of nowhere. Only certain people know about it," he said. "It was like going to somebody’s farm.”Hernandez recalled that there was a door in the fence at the border, and one or two officers stood guard. He said that on the reservation, a Native American woman instructed him to get in a van — “a big square one.” “I climbed underneath the seats and they had two kids with them,” he said. “
