Have you ever wondered why these immigrants are pouring north from Central America?
If you are like me you probably are under the impression that they are running away from MS 13 gangsters.
If you thought that, you would be right.
But why does Central America produce these MS 13 gangsters?
Look no further than your United States government which has been hijacked by Corporate America.
Corporate America is responsible for pushing through CAFTA or the Central America Free Trade Agreement.
You’ve heard of NAFTA; well, meet its brother, CAFTA.
CAFTA Is an unwanted interloper in central America. The citizens there didn’t want it at all. They knew what it would bring.
And what it has brought is what all free trade brings – poverty, pollution, violence and slave wages.
Free trade has been a disaster for Central America, and that is why these people are leaving.
When economic times are bad, when people have shitty jobs, gangs abound.
Who wants to raise their children in the midst of gangs?
That is why these mothers with kids in tow have to come to the United States of America.
You heard about the caravan a few months ago that was slowly moving through Mexico on its way to the border?
Desperate people will give up everything for a better chance in life.
They will give up their homes, their extended families, the possessions they own, even their native language.
They will risk death and robbery on the road.
They will risk discrimination when they get here, for in the United States of America they will get some protection from these gangs.
In addition, if they have a child who was born in the United States, that child will be a citizen of the United States and will enjoy a life their parents could only dream of.
Who will pay for all of this?
You the American people. Who will profit from all this?
Free trade is a welfare program for greedy corporations that you pay for.
