The Electrician

Meet Melvin the electrician. He has been working around our house the past few days. He is a very nice guy. He recounted to me his adventures crossing the border into the states. He and two other guys crossed into Texas. He was actually working at a car wash when the immigration came by and discovered he was illegal. He was taken to a prison where many other illegals were being held and within a few days they were put on a bus and deported back to Honduras. He actually made two trips to the states, each time being deported. Many Hondurans dream of coming to the states to work for six or eight years with the hopes of returning to their country with enough money to buy a house and a car and maybe start a little business. In Melvin´s case his dream was cut short.
