In July, the New York Times published a lengthy story about Mexicans that might have immigrated illegally to the U.S. 30 years ago, but are now opting to stay home because of better economic opportunities and education.
Earlier this week, The Daily Show basically did the same piece – but made it funny, and as they’re prone to do, even more real. For once, U.S. video footage of Mexico wasn’t dominated by dusky shots of the border and scrambling migrants. I enjoyed seeing a clean Mexican plaza, nice families out for the day and college students speaking near perfect English. That part’s not a joke! It’s actually like that in some places!!!!!!!!!
Here’s a teaser: “Hey you look like a berry picker, do you need a ladder to get in the states?”
