In an incredible report from CNN, Gary Tuchman visits Guatemela to show just how easy it is to cross from that embattled country into Mexico. Contrary to all those memes you might have seen about how difficult it is to illegally immigrate into Mexico, it appears that it only costs $1.30 and the police don’t really care how many cross in.
Tuchman shows how pretty much anyone can catch a ride on a raft, in full view of the police. He interviews a few families making the dangerous trek, saying it can take as long as two weeks to walk from the southern border of Mexico to the U.S. border.
And you thought our border was porous.
