Thanks, interesting perspective.I live in Mexico and have been living in Mexico for almost 14 years.
These people are lazy people to an extreme.
Mexicans think the streets of th US are paved in gold, some have told me that exact thing, and all they have to do is cross the border and money will be thrown at them.
When they get there they find out the reality of the situation.
Many are going back because there isn't the financial success they expected.
Where did the idea come from originally that the Mexicans were crossing the border to better their life and just work an honest days work?
If they put the same effort into working in Mexico that they do to cross the border and hide from the authorities, they could do very well.
There are plenty of opportunites in Mexico for educated people, but since a loser will never get educated, he cross the border where his education means nothing.
Please do not think a border crosser is anything to lok up to.
Most of them abandon their families to go to the US and start another one with a woman from there.
there are kids everywhere who haven't seen their fathers in years and it does affect them.
My girlfriends father is one of those border crossers.
My girlfriend doesn't even know how many half-brothers and sisters she has because this man has children from many different women in 2 countries, and he was never there for her or he sister, and they were the forst two he produced.
