Univision anchor Maria Elena Salinas remembers covering the events of September 11, 2001.

“If there is one thing I remember from the week it’s all the people that were being interviewed that would take a moment to show a picture—regardless of what was being asked from them—they showed a picture of a loved one [asking] ‘have you seen my brother, have you seen my mother, have you seen my sister, have you seen my wife?’ It was one after another,” Salinas says in the video above.

Salinas goes on to say that for Latinos and immigration in general, “everything’ has changed since 9/11.
