A wheelchair-bound Albert Lino of Las Cruces sat in front of state senators Tuesday afternoon.
His wife is an undocumented worker, Lino told lawmakers.
“I don’t drive,” Lino said, then broke down. “Sorry,” he said waving his hand as he sobbed.
Lino worked to compose himself.
“What do I do? I need her,” Lino asked state lawmakers. “These immigrants they are not the same. People say they leave. Not everybody is the same. We can be more human, that’s all I have to say.”
