‘You get mixed emotions, that they would travel so far to look for work. Hundreds of miles through perils. The fence doesn’t really stop them. As long as they think there’s employment in the United States, they will continue to do that, just like anyone trying to better themselves for a better job.’
The United States’ border with Mexico is nearly 2000 miles long and is blocked by numerous natural and man-made barriers. Reportage Featured Contributor Charles Ommanney journeyed along the border and met the residents, border patrol agents, and immigrants who pass back and forth across it. See his film: The Fence, Part 1 on MSNBC Photos.

Update: Part 2 of The Fence is now live.
Finished reading. I want to talk about this book but I don’t know what to say without being cheesy and cliche. It is usually compared to the Kite Runner for “promotional purposes” but Little Bee has had a deeper impact on me despite all its flaws on fiction and climax parts.
I loved Nigerian girl both as a character and narrator and her parts are my favorites. Her story is so heartbreaking and touching that everything about her story with the hypocrisy of Western civilization made me both sad and angry. I loved the story of both women and the little Batman but this is one of those books that make the reader drown in sadness and I am against the fact that this attitude has become some kind of a trend?
Anyway, the book doesn’t turn into the question of moral issues and the writer focuses on the humanistic view of the world and cultural differences and that’s what makes me love the book more.
This is the trouble with happiness — all of it is built on top of something that men want.

We must see all scars as beauty. Okay? This will be our secret. Because take it from me, a scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, ‘I survived’.
