Perhaps not “all politics is personal,” but for Mexican-born and raised Sanchez, a naturalized American citizen since 2016, the plight of immigrants and the enforcement of border policies is deeply personal. “I feel so blessed and so thankful for what I've achieved in the United States,” says Sanchez. “But at the same time, I feel completely repulsed by what the United States is doing to immigrants — especially to people coming from the South. So whenever and wherever I'm performing, I'm speaking out, trying to make sense of what is going on.”
