Why do Mexicans cross the border?
Mexicans cross the border because Mexico's economy is bad. Average salary in Mexico per day is $4. The people of mexico can't support their families. It is also good for mexican people to cross the border because they can't support their families. They have to get jobs in america to get money and they will go back when the mexican economy is better. Some drug smugglers and illegal immigrants pay "coyotes" to take them to america. Mexicans and drug smugglers pay $1000 to get across the border safely in a tunnel. America should stop the coyotes because they are getting a safe route where the border patrol can't find them. Because america helped people from El Salvador in 1980, so then the rest of central America started to come into the united states.
