He says the immigration bill passed by the Senate is a good start and that there needs to be a pathway to citizenship.
"Because if not, then we will create an underclass and that's not what this country is all about," said Gomez.
Gomez believes countries have the right to protect their borders, but doesn't understand the idea of a border fence that will cost hundreds of millions of dollars. He says it would be better to help other countries improve their economies.
"Immigration is a global fact. It's not going to change. People are going to keep moving, especially now with the means of transportation. So it seems to me the United States can help other countries to have better immigration systems," said Gomez.
This Sunday, Gomez will hold a special mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of The Angels to celebrate immigration. It will include hundreds of people from different nations who will tell their stories of America.
