    1992 Luis V. Gutiérrez is elected to U.S. Congress, becoming first Puerto Rican/Latino to serve from the Midwest. As a result of his tireless advocacy for progressive issues such as the end to the bombing in Vieques and legalization for the 11 million undocumented workers in the United States, Gutiérrez emerges as one of the most admired Latino public figures in the Unites States.
