Illegal immigrants. Beheadings. Drug trafficking in the desert. Gang violence in Mexico. SB1070. Yada, yada, yada...
Rightly or wrongly, Arizona's SB1070 pushed immigration and border issues to the forefront in this election season.
Misinformation about immigration and the border abounds. For people who want to know more about migrants, gangs, the drug trade, and how it all relates to Americans, I suggest these movies:
- El Norte
- Sin Nombre
- Maria Full of Grace
- Plan Columbia
Watch these and then tell me who the real victims are. I'll give you a hint: It's related to poverty... on both sides of the border.
