Art Imitates Life For Undocumented Executive Star and Producer
Tony Guerrero (Jesus “Jaqi” Gutierrez) is currently facing an immigration drama of his own. After crossing the border over ten years ago, Guerrero worked his way up from busboy to television and film star. He is a Spanish language spokesperson for Ole Mexican Foods, Chick Fil-A, Lowe’s, American Airlines, Wal-Mart and many more. He can be seen in Hollywood blockbusters like ANCHORMAN 2 and X-MEN FIRST CLASS and acclaimed independent shorts like MOVED and TROZOS DE LUZ and is a familiar face on national commercials, television programs and sitcoms. But in 2012, Guerrero’s immigration status caught up to him when a Federal judge ordered him to be deported by late January 2013. Guerrero was able to petition the Department of Homeland Security for a temporary halt to the judge’s deportation order, which must be renewed every year. The recent Presidential Executive Order gives Guerrero a reprieve, but that order is being aggressively challenged in Congress and in court.
