The Communists built a wall (torn down since things have changed) to keep people from escaping from East Germany into democratic and capitalist countries. Why would so many of them want to leave what those responsible assured was a socialist workers paradise?

There are so many people trying to cross over into the United States they're now building a wall on the southern border to keep them out. Why would anyone want to come to a nation many see as the Great Satan that abuses other cultures, a society full of right-wing Christian bigots and a nation its President has been apologizing for all around the world, assuring them we are changing?

Does anyone out there understand what's going on?
