Hector is an illegal immigrant in the United States, he is arrested after being pulled over by the police for driving infractions and taken into custody. His wife Carmen is then forced to go on the run, taking Grace with her.
At some point in his life, Hector crossed the border from Mexico into the United States of America and made his way to Fairview. Whilst in America, he met Carmen Sanchez and fell in love with her and eventually married her. Some time after the marriage, Carmen fell pregnant and gave birth to Juanita Solis in Fairview Memorial Hospital.
