Martinez: Money is not my main motivation.
Jenn: Then what is?
Martinez: My parents came here from Mérida when I was nine. My brothers were six and seven. The risk we took just to get here. This country gave us stability, gave us safety, gave us a good living. I’m sorry, I still get emotional just thinking about it.
Jenn: That’s why you joined?
