so far from god
Every Year around 400.000 mexicans are leaving their homes in Mexico and heading for USA.
Especially in the rural areas most of those who leave are men. They leave hoping that a job in the USA can help the families back home to gain better living condition. And eventhough most of them are returning with money the dream of USA is not without consequences: Women and children are left in periods up to several yaers facing life alone - and dealing with the risk that the man may choose to stay in USA or disappear in the dangerous desert crossing the boarder.
It is said that between 11 and 12 millions mexicans are working in the USA.
The mexicans have a saying; Poor mexico, So far from God, so close to USA.
