Victor H. Toledo-Pulido, 22
They judge us and say we just come to take their jobs and positions, but we also make sacrifices. Victor worked since he was little, in the fields and in restaurants. He was a Mexican, but he thought like an American. And he gave his life for this country.
— Yosio Toledo, brother
Toledo-Pulido was smuggled over the mountains from Mexico with his older brother and mother when he was 7 years old. He became a legal resident in 1999 and toiled in the fields of the Central Valley with an uncle, picking crops.
