Who here has seen that show?

I love the 30 days shows in general. However this one was my 3rd favorite behind only the Mcdonalds and Minimum Wage ones.

It showed this extremist dude who hated illegals and Mexicans and he would volunteer for the border patrol and they made him live for 30 days with an illegal family. At the end of the show after seeing how they were forced to live before they came to America and there struggle here just to survive and be seen as humans he broke down an cried and apologized to the children for being so ignorant.

I'm not trying to shove my opinions down your throat (or am I?) But I think everyone on here who is interested in the subject of illegal immigration from Mexico should check it out. In fact even if you are not just check out the 30 days documentary's. They are all great and insightful and if you are living thru some of the things that is being reported on them (For me, the minimum wage one) it is something that you really feel.

Yeah it was easier to break down and cry than demand that Mexico take better care of its people.

Can't find any unfortunately.
I did find a press conference from a few months after the show ended and whats interesting is the dude seemed to have changed his mind.
He's now really militant.

YouTube - 30 Days Illegal Immigration episode press conference

It is what it is. His opinion is interesting and I actually agree with some of what he says an I disagree with other parts.
Everyone really should Download the episode though. I think its on itunes for $1.99

What he lived with only one illegal family? Usually if you have them in the neighborhood there are dozens (and that's just in one house).
