Why leaving a country to become an immigrant-refugee for any other reason than fleeing violent conflict is a bad idea.

With the recent deaths which have occured within the boundry of the Mexico-US border, reality needs to be seriously addressed. People leaving South America to find a 'better life' need a healthy dose of actual truth.

When my mother passed away a few years ago, the cost of her cremation was in excess of sixteen hundred dollars. As I was picking up her ashes, I was informed that the cost of it in the future was only going up.

Never mind the ever rising cost of death, making a living here is not easy. A just released report states that 74% of housing on the American market is not affordable by the average wage earner.

There is a growing homeless problem here, and American children meet hunger every day. We are also a 'greying' nation, where aging Americans are having to work longer to afford the basic necessities such a cremation.

So, here's my proposal, send the actual truth though a public service message, have it go viral and try to let these naieve (and I'm assuming mostly younger) people understand, that if they seek a 'pot of gold' here, it doesn't exist.

All the people I've mentioned in this essay were for the most part born here, they are so called 'legal' and they are still struggling. So, what will life be like for those who aren't?

The persons who obtain the pot of gold exist in the one percentile realm of this country, those such as our current president. As for the rest of us, the many live from pay check to pay check with no guarantee of anything that was ever promised by government.

My message here is just this, DON'T RISK YOUR LIFE FOR SOMETHING WHICH DOESN'T EXIST.
