My brother-in-law was born and spent his early years in Mexico. He’s a US citizen now, living the middle class life. He’s got a wife, two kids, and a house he’s underwater on. My sister-in-law works as a teacher. He makes good money as a translator.
I got to spend some time with him during my little trip to Texas. They are getting by well enough, probably better than most. He’s got no regrets about leaving Mexico, that’s for sure.
However, he is disturbed to see the US becoming Mexico. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. The middle class is disappearing. He fears that there will only be the rich and the poor. That’s not a great way to live. My brother-in-law knows what that’s like more than our native born citizens. It scares the hell out of him.
It worries me more than a little myself.
