Study: Mexican Migrants Aren’t Deterred by Border Fences

Based on Mexican survey data, the report found that Mexican migrants crossing illegally are more likely to consider things like the job market in Mexico and the perceived danger of crossing when deciding to enter the U.S. They’re less concerned with getting caught or punished.

That’s something that experts have been saying for a while: economic factors are more likely to affect illegal immigration than border fences.

Popocatépetl Flyover Is Really Cool!

Ever wonder what an active volcano looks like from above? Mexico’s Navy together with CENAPRED, the National Center for Prevention of Disasters, took care of this question by flying over the great Popocatépetl on July 7, 2013. The images are amazing. See for yourself!

"There are the green-eyed Mexicans. The rich blond Mexicans. The Mexicans with the faces of Arab sheiks. The Jewish Mexicans. The big-footed-as-a-German Mexicans. The leftover-French Mexicans. The chaparrito compact Mexicans. The Tarahumara tall-as-a-desert-saguaro Mexicans. The Mediterranean Mexicans. The Mexicans with Tunisian eyebrows. The negrito Mexicans of the double coasts. The Chinese Mexicans. The curly-haired, freckled-faced, red-headed Mexicans. The Lebanese Mexicans. Look, I don’t know what you’re talking about when you say I don’t look Mexican. I am Mexican. Even though I was born on the U.S. side of the border."

Mexican parents denied entry to the U.S. to say goodbye to their dying daughter

January 9, 2013

This past Sunday, Maria Sanchez, 26, died in her Houston home from the effects of an inoperable spinal tumor. Just four days earlier U.S. Customs and Border Protection denied a humanitarian parole to her parents, so they were unable to see their daughter on her death bed. The agency said humanitarian parole was an extraordinary measure granted only for a “very compelling emergency.”

I guess saying goodbye to your child isn’t a very compelling emergency in the eyes of the U.S. government? Disgusting.

Apparently this wasn’t the first time Sanchez suffered at the hands of “undocumented citizenship”:

Almost two years ago, the University of Texas Medical Branch ejected her from the hospital shortly before a scheduled surgery after discovering she was in the country illegally. Written on her discharge paper was the suggestion that she seek surgery in Mexico. The hospital at the time said federal privacy laws precluded comment on a specific case.

Sanchez’s husband will send his wife’s body to Mexico for burial.

Something very similar happened to me recently when my grandfather passed away in November. One of his sisters wasn’t allowed to cross the border into El Paso to attend the funeral. 

These are the consequences of borders & immigration laws. Families are repeatedly torn apart for no reason at all.
