Latinos having to face the social, economic, political and cultural life in the United States in search of a better life. It is seen as a way to escape the hardships of their countries.
This controversies have been around for several years. Each group that migrates to America has always faced numerous problems and conflicts. The United States is making it harder for these undocumented people to be able to live the dream of having a better life. It is a cruel reality that the United States is now trying to remove all undocumented people and calling them “aliens,” leaving children that are legal citizens without their parents. Crushing the childrens dream of one day becoming lawyers, teachers and policeman because of the atrocity events happening to their families. Also, having them make a decision of leaving their own country for one that they might have not even been to or one that they don’t want to live in, changing their ways of living. Imagine yourself going from having a fairly decent life to a very poor one. Would you be able to maintain your family and maybe get a good education?

In protecting their children they immigrate to the United States ignoring the consequences.

Las pandillas are formed by a group of men or women that refer to each other as homegirl or homeboys. They wear baggy clothes, white T-shirts, shave their heads and have tattos. Homeboys and homegirls often drink alcohol and do drugs because they lack parent supervision. Therefore, they also tend to consume it on school grounds and outside. They start selling drugs out of school to little kids.
Most women lose themselves through traumatic events throughout their journey. They feel as if they are nobodies in this world anymore, they lose their sense of humor and the world to them is just not the same. Two of the major and cruel events that they have to witness and go through is rape and death. In the documentary, Border Crossing, a lady named Maria left her husband and her children in search for a better life in order to be able to...
