    The field trip to Nogales, Mexico through BorderLinks is an experience that I will never forget. The time I spent in Nogales, I learned things that I could never learn in a book. I witnessed people living life in a poverty-stricken country that many of us are not accustomed to and that many of us would deem as awful.             

Although many people perceive this mind-set, the people I encountered seemed happy to live in Nogales and would never want to leave it. It may seem that many immigrate into the United States from Mexico when in reality, it is only a small number of people that actually do, and they do it because many do not have a choice. Watch their families die of hunger or immigrate into a richer country to try to survive life.
