San Diego Immigrant Janitor Returns to Home after Attending the State of the Union Address

Rosa Lopez, a San Diego janitor and immigrant success story will return home today after attending President Obama’s State of the Union Address as a guest of Congressman Juan Vargas. Rosa is active in her union, SEIU United Service Workers West.

Rosa was born on a small ranch in Oaxaca, Mexico where her parents farmed crops and raised animals to support their family. As a young girl, Rosa helped her parents planting chilies, beans and corn, but she dreamed of a better life.
