....and Guatemala is honored that you want to represent us Luis. As long as you are fulfilling your dream, we stand by you Champ. Haters go hate while sitting on your fat asses! LoL JuanSaaa 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥳🥳🥳🤭🥲🥲break ❤️ I love dreamers Pretty kool Uhm, she is a Guatemalan citizen? Allow me to describe my border crossing into Guatemala- no, the quetzali poop show isn’t worth it

Godspeed. Alot of 'stay in Guatemala' comments. I don't think there was a choice on which country to represent; as a DACA person, not only is he not a citizen (nor is there a path to citizenship,) he is not even considered a permanent resident. Pretty sure the US team wouldn't allow it. there are doctors and engineers and their families living legally in usa for 15 to 20 yrs are stuck outside the country cannot come because they are indians and on greencard backlog for ever... we to have dreams. first fix legal immigration

Go Luis! We need a reform to replace DACA. The reason for DACA is that they came as young kids and cannot go back to where they were born. But he is representing the very county he cannot go back. This will become an argument to hurt DACA. I just put it up before someone else. You just said Guatemala was his home country. He should follow his Olympic dream there.
