Houston, TX — Illegal immigrants have been spotted crossing the border to return to Mexico in an effort to avoid catching the coronavirus in the U.S.
Border patrol agents have reported seeing hundreds of people crossing the border in the last few days. Border patrol states that most of these people are immigrants who crossed the border illegally into the U.S., but are now retreating to Mexico because the coronavirus is causing issues with pursuing the American Dream.
Juan Diego, an immigrant returning to Mexico stated, “I came to the U.S. looking for a better life, opportunities, & to escape the Cartels.. I didn’t come here to die because somebody coughed or breathed on me. I’ll take my chances with the Cartels.”
