So I was at Havasu over the 4th and my brother was with me. He had his wife and her brother along also. Her brother is a young guy maybe early 20's from Hermosillo Mexico. Speaks broken English but understands pretty well. I talked to him for quite a while, nice kid. He told me he has twin baby girls who were actually born on his birthday, a great present he described. He said he was making about $100 a week working down in Mexico and wanted to provide more for his family so he came to the U.S. for work. I asked how he got here. He said he applied and was granted a work visa to travel back and forth legally and once he arrived he got a job cutting tree's for $17 an hour. He makes about $500 a week now most of which he sends back home to his family. I asked him what else he was doing while he was here in the U.S. He told me he is studying English so he can speak and understand the language fluently and he is also studying U.S. history because he would like to apply for citizenship someday and eventually move his family over here for a better life and have them become citizens also. Not collecting one dime of government cheese. Wearing a red, white and blue bandana all day to celebrate the 4th and he knew exactly what the holiday was all about.
What the fuck is wrong with this guy? Didn't he get the obama memo? Nice kid and I hope he succeeds in his goal to better his life but I didn't have the heart to tell him that in the not so distant future, the U.S. would be the place that you don't want to live anymore,
