Migra

Album: Supernatural (1999)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is in protest to what was formerly the Immigration and Naturalization Service (now part of the Department of Homeland Security) and their raids of undocumented immigrants in the United States. But instead of inciting violence, the song preaches peace between Americans and immigrants.
  • "Migra" is slang in Spanish for the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
  • The jingling at the end of the song is Santana himself with sleigh bells. >>

  • Laura from Ottumwa, IaThis is a tight song. I espieally love the starting words in this song.
  • Kane from Vancouver, WaSantana seemed to be the quiet riot in rock music. He wasn't forceful, but he said what needed to be said.
