I am in your same situation I've lived in Juarez for 3 months. I moved to Juarez because my wife is waiting for her visa. It is a wonderfull City. Juarez welcomed us with open arms. Life is dagerous if your into the nite life like concerts, Bars, night clubs etc. The people of Juarez are very nice and the life style is great were in the USA can you watch a 3D movie in leather recliners while drinking a cold Corona(beer).

In Houston for starters, it is not unique. Not only can you sit in leather seats with your beer, you also have the option of sitting at a table and eating dinner too. You not need to worry about violence, oh no, none of that... Texas' Concealed Handgun Law allows you to take your Glock into the movie theaters too for that lil' bit of peace of mind.

I think the discussion about Juarez stirs the pot of curiosity - much like the shocking things we hear about Detroit. We aren't looking to see these places to go slumming or feel better about ourselves...to the contrary - I think once you really see places like Juarez or Detroit you mostly see people who aren't criminals, who work hard, and have no means to get out. These two cities are the cheapest places to live - if someones struggling there, how're they going to be able to orchestrate a move to a new city, find a job, first/last months rent plus deposit...it's not that easy to get out.

Something has to be done so the people living there don't have to live like this. This is insane! Unfortunately, I have no idea what the solution is. I don't believe that Detroit is a lost cause (yet). And it does sound like a lot of people in Juarez have US college degrees. There has to be some sense of hope.
