This is a bad sign. Even illegal immigrants now think that the US economy is bad enough that “to live here is to suffer.” According to Radar magazine, the number of those seeking to cross the border illegally is dropping precipitously, mostly due to our “sickly housing industry and pisspoor economy.”
Radar is worried…in a Radar kind of way. Who is going to do all those jobs nobody else wants to do? “Now that things are getting a little rough you want to turn tail? Now, when we don’t need you the most? No deal, buddy. You’re gonna sit here and suffer with the rest of us.”
Something tells me Radar magazine’s cheeky tone is not going to go over well in the Mexican community.
