Manuel Munoz

Munozs essay, “Leave Your Name at the Border,” he wrote this essay at a time in the United States when illegal immigration was causing a lot of dispute. Many Americans had an extreme disgust towards all immigrants, especially Mexicans. This could explain one motive Mexican names were being translated to their English equivalents. Even Munoz and other Mexicans would say their own names in English as an “unwittingly complicit gesture of trying to blend in.” he expected Americans would recognize the importance of the Mexican Americans names to their identities. He wanted them to give Mexican Americans the respect they justified as human beings, starting with using their real names.
