In the United States, neither Republicans nor Democrats have been able to give migrants their value, so with the proposal to build a wall along the border, they must respond by building bridges of understanding and collaboration, said the prominent neurosurgeon Alfredo Quiñones Hinojosa.
The doctor of Mexican origin based in the U.S., who is known as “Dr. Q “, said that “not only Republicans have a misconception of the immigrant, the Democrats have not understood very well our role either”, Notimex reported.
“I think we are talking about many things that are wrong, millions of Mexicans who have migrated to the United States, which have had an enormous contribution to the economy, science, education, and unfortunately we do not pay attention to this,” he said.
Born in Mexico in 1968, Quiñones migrated to the United States in 1986, where he began working as a laborer. Later, when he studied medicine, he obtained US citizenship. Then he specialized in neurosurgery and is currently head of that area at the Mayo Clinic in Florida.
On the proposal of the Republican Party candidate for president of the United States, Donald Trump, to build a wall along the border with Mexico and unfortunate comments about migrants, the former emigrant said that citizens of both countries are the ones who should change history.
“The way that will make it change is assuming what is my responsibility. If we expect our presidents, if we expect our candidates get us out of this hole, we will continue in it,” he said at a conference in the “Manuel Velasco Suarez” Auditorium at the Juarez Hospital of Mexico.
“It is our responsibility to build these bridges formed by people, by ideas, by collaboration, to come and reach out to those who have little. When you do that, you give them hope and the meaning of these bridges is stronger,” he said.
Alfredo Quiñones, who is known as “Dr. Q “, runs a laboratory in which half the staff is Mexican and half American.
His team has made significant progress in the treatment of brain cancer and care for other neurological diseases with less invasive techniques.
