Last year I heard a family's cousin who lives in mexico had been capture & was being held for ransom, the family had to give up a home, a truck & money to keep this cousin alive.
Well the guy I know his father isnt doing so well now, father is in mex. so he went over there with some other family & now HE was caught by the gang & are demanding $1million. "thankfully" its pesos which = about $30k american money!
This guy is legal! Some of his family is here illegally...If you/your family could be caught & held for ransom, would u want to risk crossing the border to us freedom?
These guys if the ransom is met, still come home beat up really bad & the family has to live in fear. The police are crooked there so u dont know who to trust! They dont even want the US police in on it, in fear they will retaliate on other family members.

Many of the people that come to the US from Mexico would die or their family members would die if they stayed in Mexico.
They would come to the US legally if they could. It takes 14-20 years to come to the US if you have family in the US, longer if you don't have family. If takes 5 years or longer to just get a green card to work in the US.
I live in Tucson and was at the home of a beautiful Mexican family going through the process of becoming "legal". The husband has a job in construction but with the economy the company has few projects right now. The wife can't work, no ss card or green card. They have a very nice mobile home, perfectly clean. Much cleaner than my house. Two nice polite children. They have been here over 10 years in legal limbo.
