Another Mexican, Humberto name, worked as a painter in a building where the cafeteria where usually ate was. Their dress was a white shirt and jeans fully stained with white paint. He told that he had gone to United States two years ago and found work quickly thanks to a Mexican friend of theirs. It had that you liked what he did, even though it was very heavy due to the weather hot, 40 degrees centigrade was what marked the thermometers that were out of several buildings for several days in the afternoon. He worked with eager, whenever he passed through the building saw it work. He did not mention anything about Mexico, perhaps because it takes a few years in United States.
In a restaurant, I met Ramiro. A Mexican who boasted that he was a legal migrant. He came to the United States and passed the border by car, by the city of Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas. He handed over his papers at the Customs Office and embarked on a journey for life, without return. His mission was to get U.S.
citizenship for legal way. Told me that in the State of Texas, there is a program that gives citizenship to foreigners who want to perform two activities in specific: master (a) bilingual (Spanish and English) of primary or nurse (a). He and his wife decided to be bilingual teachers of a primary full of Latino children. The strangest thing is that neither of them had been masters of primary. He has a Bachelor’s degree in computer science, while his wife is a teacher of Japanese language, but they cannot exercise their verdaeras professions, until after a period of 5 years, which is when they are given the citizenship. They have to exercise as a primary school teacher for 5 years and the last year cannot leave United States.
