    I'm only posting this to ask you keep him and his family in your prayers.
    Before anybody goes there---he is NOT an illegal nor an anchor baby, as the article says he is a San Antonio native.

    What is an anchor baby? I've never heard the term. Will pray.

    Anchor baby means "The mother gave birth to the kid either on a US state's land/a US Territory, or at sea (in United States of America) waters, thus making them a citizen." Thoughts and prayers sent. I hope he pulls through ok.

    ETA: People born in Puerto Rico are considered United States Citizens, even though Puerto Rico isn't yet a state. It is a USA territory.

    Anchor baby is the term used for a child born in the US to illegal immigrants.

    Thank you for the prayer.

    This makes me think of Selena, even though she was murdered. She was also a Tejano singer and was born in the US, in Corpus Christi. Prayers for Emilio and his family.

    The one this really reminds me of is the crash Gloria Estefan had with her tour bus. It was in my state and it was stunning. She worked very hard to come back.

    It was near fatal, in the Pocono Mts. of Pennsylvania in 1990, a truck hit her tour bus on a slick highway, she was stretched out on a sofa sleeping, bad vertebrae break. This song is about her road back and how much her husband helped her:

    I didn't know about the boat accident.

    I know a lot of Mexican people who are really saddened over this. I hope he pulls through. I also don't think it should matter if he is illegal or an anchor baby, we should pray for him and his family no matter what.

    You are absolutely correct. Unfortunately, not so much on this board, but alot of times (as in The Tennessean) one only needs to hear a hispanic sounding surname and they go there. (as in "he shouldn't have been in this country in the first place.") I was only trying to head that off.
    I have not heard of any updated news. The Houston Chronicle had this posted a little while ago.

    But I think it's the same info I posted earlier.
    All we can do now is pray.
