Guerrero has previously requested a U.S. visa three times but it had been rejected each time.

The third time he requested the visa, he even included a letter signed by Alfonso Cuarón, stating Guerrero had been invited to the Oscars.

Jorge Guerrero told EL UNIVERSAL: “I have never felt offended, angry, or victimized, no one is doing anything to me, that is very clear. How many people go through that?, how many people even risk their lives to travel to the U.S., not for being invited to a red carpet, but for work?”

Guerrero recently participated in a Netflix series about Luis Donaldo Colosio and he is currently working on a TV series about Spanish colonizer Hernán Cortés. He is known for having played Cadete Tello in the Netflix series about Luis Miguel.
