Jorge Narvaez made headlines last year with his acoustic cover of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes' "Home," performed with his daughter Alexa. Now, Narvaez has recorded the song again to help his mother find asylum in the United States.
Narvaez's mother, who came to America undocumented in 1987, recently returned to Mexico so that her son and husband, both of whom are US citizens, could help her obtain legal residency in the United States. Unfortunately, her application was turned down, and her family haven't seen her since then.
This video is part of the Bring Them Home campaign, whose goal is to reunite 150 families with relatives who have crossed the US-Mexican boarder. The Narvaez family hopes that this video will help generate public support for those seeking asylum and ultimately reunite families with their loved ones.
If you'd like to help, share their video, and sign the #BringThemHome petition.
