Watch: Disillusioned Venezuelan Migrant Wants to Go Home

Outside San Antonio’s non-government welcome center for migrants, Breitbart Texas interviewed Luis Gomez, a Venezuelan migrant who says he just wants to go home. Hundreds of migrants moved along the Alamo City’s  San Pedro Avenue on a brisk Saturday morning, hoping to leave the city for other parts of the United States.
