BREAKING NEWS – Hollywood, California – José Hernández reflected on his journey as the first migrant farm worker to be launched into space ahead of the release of “A Million Miles Away,” the movie inspired by his historic flight.

Hernández grew up in a rural village in Michoacán, Mexico, and for years worked with his family picking fruits and vegetables in the fields of the San Joaquin Valley and Stockton, California. But he always had NASA on the brain. In August 2009, he accomplished his lifelong dream of becoming an STS-128 mission specialist on the space shuttle Discovery.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was also inspired by upcoming movie. “Here is an idea that’s a long time coming,” she began. “We should start sending some migrants to live at the International Space Station. This will help reduce the burden of migrants being bused to sanctuary cities from that ruthless governor in Texas. We should also ship homeless people to live outside of the International Space Station, after securing their tents to the orbiting satellite.”
