First you have to spend thousands of dollars for someone to bring you over "safely" but there is no guarantee of making it over. If you cross through the desert, you go days with no water, food or anything. A lot of times, families and the groups get seperated because people become ill, or weak and fall behind. The ones that become lost in the desert are the ones that go out to look for border patrol. They want to be found, and taken to safety. The ones that cross the Rio Grande, some don't even know how to swim, but they risk it anyway. A lot drown, and when they are found by border patrol they tie a rope to them and drag the body behind the boat until Mexico gets them. Woman are raped, people are held hostage, families are torn apart. There is nothing easy about coming to the "Land of opportunity"
Most of the immigrants come from Central America, NOT Mexico like a lot of you seem to believe. These immigrants risk so much to find a better life, not all, but a lot. I agree that not everyone should be able to be here. I think there should be more control at the border. There are so many hard working families that truly should be given an opportunity to be here. There should be an easier way to gain naturalization for those who deserve it. And for those who do not, well they should be sent back to where ever they came from.
People that think everyone is eligible to be here legal you are WRONG. At least in Mexico, you have to have a bank account, properties, money and so much more to be considered a visa. It's not a guarantee. Unless you have money or connections it's hard to get a visa. It's easier for young students, and business men and woman to come here on a visa.
