Illegal immigration supporter who received an Ohtli award from the Mexican government . That award is given to those Americans who push that foreign country's agenda inside the U.S.

the Ohtli Award was presented to Gonzalez by Mexican Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan on behalf of Mexican President Felipe Calderon.
"Shared history, traditions, values and a common border unite the United States with Mexico in seeking what both countries desire: to be a robust sovereign national that provides economic security as well as safety and well-being for all families," Gonzalez said Friday in a statement after receiving the award.
"The Ohtli Award recognizes this enduring truth, and it is a tremendous honor which I humbly accept," Gonzalez said.
