Closer Look Why do illegal immigrants make the decision to migrate? Deportation Victims of Poverty 3rd world countries are not a friendly place to live in!
Rather than watch families die, brave family members travel with intentions to be able to provide.
"I went to school for Marketing and worked until I had enough money to travel to the United States. Even with a marketing degree I had no future." Argentina Villar (Aunt) Why Fear?
ICE will look for evidence of the mistreatment of workers, along with evidence of trafficking, smuggling, harboring, visa fraud, identification document fraud, money laundering and other such criminal conduct.
ICE will obtain indictments, criminal arrests or search warrants, or a commitment from a U.S. Attorney's Office to prosecute the targeted employer before arresting employees for civil immigration violations at a work site. When laws like this are in place people fear because no matter what the conditions are found in the work place, not only will employer get prosecuted but also all undocumented people will be sent back!

Largest amount of hope you can carry -Manuel Romero (My dad) The Border Stats. The international Mexican U.S. Border is 1,969 miles long!
The States along the border are California. Arizona, New Mexico,Texas
all this land consist of long miles of dessert, hills, Colorado River and Rio Grande
45 U.S. Border Crossings and 330 Entry Ports http://www.ibwc.state.gov/ The Wall For More Information about the Secure Fence Act passed in 2006 watch the documentary "The Wall" http://www.thewalldocumentary.com/film/ The story of a Coyote Coyotes are legal U.S. citizens who "help" illegal migrants across the border.
The amount coyotes charge varies, usually the safer the crossing is, the more expensive the cross.
Some coyotes know the hills, some know safe ways to cross the Rio Grande, and other coyotes have learned to cross the blazing deserts
Each of these methods of crossing is dangerous. Border Patrol on both sides with weapons, cameras everywhere, helicopters scanning the desserts, a place where there is no where to hide. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=102572753 La Frontera Evidence A, B, C, D Art and Border Security The article Border theater: on the arts of security and resistance by Louise Amoore and Alexandra Hall states

Change the Way News are portrayed
No One is Illegal, we are simply human beings and we all belong! Language is important!
Fair Trials for people that have families in the U.S.
Allow the voices and stories of illegal immigrants to be heard. For political decisions, for education, news portrayals
Defend HUMAN rights! You Tube Trailer The Case of Paula "We move them across the way we've always crossed them. This work never ends. There's always demand.
" I feel like I'm helping them. Things are rough here. They can earn a lot better living there and then send money back to their families in Mexico." For immigrants that bumped into Coyotes like Paula were lucky for coyotes are deceivers who did not care for their clients.
Everyman for himself when facing the brutality of mother nature and those that could not keep up would get left behind, lost, or forced to return. http://www.pewhispanic.org/2009/04/14/a-portrait-of-unauthorized-immigrants-in-the-united-states/
