Don't miss the new film THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, which actually makes direct reference to the issue of illegal immigration. In the film, with the climate of the Northern latitudes rapidly going down the toilet, there's a huge flood of American refugees heading southward, attempting to flee a new ice age and re-settle in Mexico.
The filmmakers handle the situation in a way which is both politically incorrect and quite astute. At first the Mexican government seals the border and refuses to let the desperate hoards in. After it's bribed, with the US promising to forgive all Latin American debt, the border opens right up.
I happened to see the film tonight whilst on vacation in Lima, Peru, and there was widespread knowing laughter in the audience at this last part.
No one is more acutely and painfully aware of Latin American governments' corruption than Latin Americans themselves, of course.
