I will never understand how it is that all Americans don’t root for each and everyone of these guys to make it to the USA by any means they can.
You could make the case that the sheer willpower and drive necessary to get you’re self physicaly here, by deffinition show that you have “the right stuff” and are well above the average person from your country in sheer drive and ability to overcome and adapt to any situation.
Imagine the devotion an employer would get if they spent 400 dollars on a plane ticket and a sponsorship for a work visa to get this guy from Getmo to a job in the States.
The fact that it makes no sense (even from a buisness prospective that it makes me think that the Republican party always fighting against anyone imigrating except from white european countries harbors some latent racism or at best ignorance.
Guys like the one in this story love this country more than you or I ever will. He makes me ashamed to take this freedom we possess for granted like we all do. We all need to re think our imigration and ask ourselves…why are we trying to keep out amazing people who often do jobs I would pay not to have to do with little money or thanks. We should be giving an express lane through customs to any poor bastard that is on his way to work in a tomatoe field.
