The cash and stories of a better life that many Mexican migrant workers send back home often entice many of their relatives and friends to join the northward migration. But, Centelia Maldonado, an activist from the Mexican state of Oaxaca, wants to explore the other side of that story: the one about the dangerous border crossings, back -breaking work and, recently, the shrinking number of jobs.
Quote:
"We want to let people know the suffering people go through and to look for alternatives" to migration, Maldonado said.

I wish I knew Reality Check. Whoever RC is, they are SPOT ON. It appears there are many Californians who feel the way I do, we just needs to start organizing.

I would be glad to help too. The problem is the people who sneak over the border think they are going to find a land of milk and honey instead of a job in the field picking crops 12 hours a day for little pay. The only way to help is to expose the truth.

Illegals face the same problems the slaves and the Chines 'Coolies" faced in history past.

I would welcome many of the services provided by Mexicans. The problem is I can't tell who the good honest guy or gal is by looking. And I trust the documentaion. It's going to get harder for illegals to find a job because there are too manny American out of work. .
