American dream exist for Americans, if you are ilegal stay home.
WHY WAS IT SO HARD FOR THEM TO LET THEM ALL GO RUN FREE AND LIVE THEIR DREAM.IT HURTS.R.I.P.
Please don't come to America
The American dream for some Americans is fine, but for others it is dead. When you get here you will find misery and the constantly looking over your shoulder for Ice is real. Gangs are real the same ones in your country started here, dv is real but you cannot call the police because of your status and the fear of deportation. And there is always the fear that you will be caught after you have settled Down and had a family you might be deported without your family, unless you take your family with you. Just remember that in America you will have some of the same problems here that you did in your home country. Some do need to escape from their country and I hope that they make it. This whole immigration is so confusing to me and the news and the politicians only make it worse
THEY SHOULDNT TRY AND COME OVER ILLEGALLY.PIECES OF SH-T
Some of the victims seemed like they were doing okay in Mexico. RIP… they had no idea this would happen
Not a Trump supporter, but he made immigrants voluntary return to Mexico and Biden pretty much welcomed them back in.
Que Dios los Bendiga.
This wouldn't have happened if the Biden administration would have shut the boarder down, so that people could not enter illegally. There has not been any punishment so there is no deterrent from smuggling people. This has hurt so many many people, and it should have never happened! There has to be more done to deter people from risking their lives to enter our country illegally. The Biden administration needs to be more strict and uphold our laws so that lives can be saved.
May all of them rest in peace. It is such an awful way to part away from their lives. This is such heart breaking incident
WHEN THESE PEOPLE ENTER THE TRAILER THEY STOP BEING HUMAN..THEY ARE CONSIDERED MERCHANDISE AND NOBODY CAN ENTER THAT TRAILER WITHOUT PAYING A $1,500 TO $2,000 DEPOSIT TO TRANSFER THIS MERCHANDISE. …WHEN THEY GET TO THEIR DESTINATION SOMEONE WILL BE THERE TO PAY DEBT IN FULL. …. IF THERE IS NO ONE THERE TO PAY FOR FULL DELIVERY..THEN THE COYOTES WILL TAKE THE MERCHANDISE TO ONE OF MANY HOUSES PROVIDED BY OTHER MEXICANS WITH GREEN CARDS TO HOUSE (KIDNAP) THE MERCHANDISE UNTIL SOMEONE PAYS FOR THE MERCHANDISE. . QUESTION: SO WHO GAVE THESE YOUNG KIDS MONEY TO PAY THE COYOTES? INSTEAD OF BLAMING THE USA GOVERNMENT … MEXICANS , GUATEMALANS ETC..NEED TO HOLD THEIR RESPECTIVE COUNTRIES GOVERNMENTS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE 34 MILLION USD THAT USA SENT THE LATIN AMERICAN COUNTRIES FOR HUMANITARIAN AID.
PLUS THE BILLIONS SENT IN REMITTANCE TO THESE LATIN AMERICAN COUNTRIES. IN 2021. SIDE NOTE…(AS OF TODAY JOE IS GETTING READY TO ASK FOR MORE HUMANITARIAN AID.) MEXICANS ALONE SENT $40 MILLION USD TO THEIR FAMILIES….OF THAT REMITTANCE MONEY… USD SENT MEXICO 34 MILLION IN 2021. GOING BACK TO THESE COYOTE HOUSES. YES, ALL ACROSS TEXAS WHERE THERE ARE BUSINESSES SUCH AS BEAUTY SHOPS, NAIL SHOPS, ETC ETC PROVIDE THESE HOUSES.. MANY BY OR RENT HOUSES OR CONDOS FOR THIS TYPE OF ILLICIT BUSINESS. I, MYSELF FELL INTO A TRAP RENTING CONDOS TO A NEIGHBORHOOD BEAUTY SHOP OWNER. SHE RENTED THE CONDO IN HER COUSIN' S NAME FOR HER AND HUSBAND. I HAD THE HABIT OF WALKING THE PROPERTY AT 3 AM EVERY MORNING THIS WOULD TELL ME WHO WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO PAY RENT. ..THIS IS THE TIME FOR DRUG DEALINGS, STEALING, GRAFFITI, ILLICIT GAMBLING GAMES, 3AM BOOTY CALLS, ETC. ETC. ANYWAY, I NOTICED AN OLDER MAN THROWING TRASH AROUND THIS TIME EVERY MORNING. I STARTED PAYING MORE ATTENTION TO THIS UNIT AND IT TURNED OUT THAT THIS WAS ONE OF A COYOTE DEN.
PUSH FOR MORE BORDER WALL. BLESSINGS TO ALL MANKIND 💕
En paz descanse todos nuestros hermanos que venían huyen de nuestro país adónde los gobierno prometen mucho al principio y nunca cumplen nada propente trabajos ayuda económica protección contra el crimen ayuda con nuestros hijos en escuelas y no ay nada por eso benemos huyendo para según buscar una vida mejor pero algunos hermanos en cuentra la muerte o ay mucho peligro en el camino lo siento mucho con TODO mi corazón a todos a quién perdieron a un ser querido y justicia que en cuéntren todos los culpables
One of the victims wanted to reunite with her mother who was in the US . Others just left and told their loved ones that they were tired of living in poverty. My heart is hurting with the families . I’m so sorry . 😢
Rip Rip 🙏🙏🙏🙏
My mother's family was displaced from Eureka, CA due to her mother murdering her husband. Here's is how it went down: my maternal grandmother murdered my grandfather in a case of domestic violence. My mother and her four siblings were all born in Eureka, CA. After the murder, and mind you, this took place in 1929, my grandmother was told that if she stayed, her children would go to foster care and she would be incarcerated. To avoid that, she and her five children fled to Mexico. Their stable life in Eureka, Ca, where my grandfather worked in the lumber mills, was gone. This little family had no money and lived in one room apartments in Mexico City, with no indoor plumbing. My grandmother, who was a seamstress, sewed the garments at night and then left her children alone in that room all day. They barely had beans to eat and my mother recounted
having to ask the neighbors for any leftovers and usually got dried up tortillas, which they had to soak in water to make them soft. My uncles, three of them, went to the streets to survive. My mother and her baby sister were left alone. Well, this sounds like a horror story, which it was, but in Mexico, and that is true of today, there is no social security or welfare. My mother came back to the U.S. eventually and so did her younger sister. The poverty, the sense of despair of young families and others who live in Latin American countries is REAL! Things are much worse today, with the gangs and Cartel activity that hampers your movements, and enduring poverty, makes people fantasize about life in the USA, but the reality is that very few migrans get to achieve even a fraction of the dream they risked their lives for in trekking to the US. The US cannot sustain the thousands of desperate people coming up to try to make a living here. The migrants are usually uneducated as they have to work as children to help their parents in the hardscrabble life of many migrants in their towns and cities. I pray for a time when those countries achieve the peace and sanity to get on with their lives. Border patrol in and people living in the border towns report finding dead bodies. This tells us that it is nearly impossible to get to the US and achieve that dream. That elderly lady is correct: the good life in the US is a fantasy! The quality of life for many Americans has declined and you hear about displaced families and seniors who cannot pay the jacked up rent, buy food and afford gas.
I pray to the Lord above to help us all, here and in those besieged Latin American countries to find the peace and stabiity they need to stay in their countries and thrive.
All of the contractors, and wealthy business owners who treat these "employees" worst than prostitutes are crying more than you. These dangerous, awful, jobs (with no health or safety provisions) where they basically treat you as a slave and you risk your life for 14 + hours a day, then pay you $30 for that whole day of work…nobody born here is going to do that. It's s supposed to be illegal. And the really disgusting philosophy that we can pay someone the least amount of money for the most amount of work, based on their personal desperation and need has got to go too.
I'm so so sorry for these families that lost their loved 1's & those victims that passed on & this is the first time I have saw this or even knew anything about this so would somebody please inform me of what happened to the people how they passed on ?
X-rays for huge containers is needed🙏🌹rest peace see u when I get there
All those future professional taco makers…so sad
I'm glad that lady said something about the dream here being delusional. She's absolutely right. RIP 🙏
I don't care how poor I am I would never let my minor child go to a foreign country with a foreign culture all for money PATHETIC
If you do it legally, typically you don't end up like this.
