According to an article in the Chicago Tribune in August of 2002, at the end of the summer of 2001, one of the Bush administration's major initiatives was amnesty for Mexican illegal immigrants in the United States. This paper examines how the immigration policy has changed since September 11 but the immigration numbers have increased. The paper examines statistics which show how bad Mexican immigrants are faring educationally, socially and financially and that the figures are only getting worse, not improving over time. The paper focuses on Los Angeles as a popular destination for Mexican immigrants and shows how the city has become 'addicted' to this cheap type of labor. The paper also uses as an example, Luis Rodriguez's true account of a poverty stricken life in America as a Mexican immigrant, in his book "Always Running".
