    While Arizona's anti-immigrant law gets all the attention, countries around the world are pursuing tough immigration polices on a scale rarely seen in history.

    A young Honduran waits to hop a freight train in Tultitlan, Mexico, hoping to get to the US. Central American migrants have passed through this city for years en route to America. Now many Mexicans resent their presence.


    Tultitlan, Mexico ​
    In this town of 800,000, illegal immigrants beg in the middle of streets and linger along the railway tracks that clack incessantly with boxcars ferrying food and textiles. They cook over open fires under highway overpasses. They sleep by day on dirty backpacks that bulge with a life's belongings and wait for taco stands and cantinas to close at night to plead for leftovers.

    While the migrants draw sympathy from those who give them the coins from their pockets, others just want them to go home. "Some people say, 'Oh the poor migrants,' but not when you have been assaulted as I have," says Blanca Estela Perez, a waitress and cook at a restaurant who says one of her employees was robbed of a week's pay last month. "I do not like them here. Not at all."

    It sounds like the sentiments of an exasperated resident of Texas or Arizona on the US-Mexican border. But actually, this is Tultitlan, in central Mexico, and the migrants overrunning this industrial city of smokestacks and sweat come from Central America and beyond.

    This multi page story exposes the race for people from third world countries to gain access to the "dream" that other built. It also shows just how hypocritical Mexicans are when treating immigrants in Mexico.

    Immigrants from other Latin American countries get treated like dirt in Mexico, but they expect to be treated good here.

    There are too many problems with with illegal immigration to try and solve with amnesty. Illegal immigration is not just about hard working illegals who only want a better life and hard working children in school. Like Bush said, terrorism in much bigger than OB., Illegal immigration is much bigger than amnesty.
