For Eleven Years a Struggle has shook America and driven many Mexicans into the United States. We see it as an illegal immigrant issue. To me its about being in a country that is at war. To me these are refugees and there is a bigger international issue at hand but one we ignore so that we can go off and fight an unjust war in the Middle East to protect ourself from situations we funded in the 1980’s and even before that.
In Mexico innocent people struggle to provide for themselves even the very basic needs, and yet we make immigration a huge issue, when the real issue is the lasting effects of NAFTA on the people and the continual exploitation of American Companies on the entire nation.
