Looks like just another sob story for illegal aliens trying to sway Americans to accept this invasion. No thanks, we aren't fooled. I'd like to see a movie made about all the Americans who have lost their jobs, were victims of I.D. theft and other crimes and the added tax burdens that they have had to endure due to this illegal invasion. I won't hold my breath though. Would that kind of movie appeal to you as much as this one apparently does?

I watched "Sin Nombre" on Netflix. It was pretty good.

"A bond between mother and son which can never be broken"....... until she gets the lust for easy American money and abandons him. Then she places him in danger, risks his life because she is addicted to the easy Almighty American Money. What kind of woman would put a small child through this just because her love of money is more than her love of her own child? She didn't care even enough to go home and escort him herself.

If you actually watched the movie you would know that the little kid leaves on his own. His mother does not instruct him to cross over into the U.S.

This is hilarious after I just commented in another thread where a poster said the right was trying to humanize the problems associated with illegal immigration and would be upset if the pro illegals would do that. LMAO...that is all the pro illegals have. No reasonable person would want to bring more poverty into the sinking ship we are all living on right now.

Let's take the scenario of the movie a step further. Rosario (the mother) works as a housekeeper, and didn't need a fake Social Security card, nor able to draw benefits. Carlitos (the son) doesn't have a Social Security number either. Where is the "lust", "addiction", and welfare payments?

Note that she was ready to "self-deport", contrary to the image you set up above...

It's the lust for a so-called better life (more money and material things) while deserting her child and breaking the law to accomplish this.

I have nothing against illegal immigrants, but that movie is painfully average. As someone else mentioned Sin Nombre is much better.
