The title is a slang Mexican migration police U.S. borders. It is in Spanish, because the poem refers to the people who emigrate from Mexico to the United States with their mother tongue is Spanish. The poem is divided into two stanzas, which expresses the views of the two characters in the poem. In the first verse is the word for Migration (U.S. border police) and in the second stanza says expressions of women who sing a song of praise to his Mexican roots. In one stanza, INS said it won”t than women to cross the border and go through all means – symbolic mentioned Insignia – that is, a government authority, and sunglasses means the ability to see in the desert. Jeep means your ability to move quickly in the desert. Boots and handcuffs Kicking means that they have legal protection to do something about the border crossing migrants and weapons means you can shoot on sight if they wish. In stanza two, the Spaniard said that he does not care (INS) has the resources, but has roots in the desert, and I know where the cache – When traveling in the desert and when they do not travel in the desert where water is available and how the signals wind of climate change – symbolic, said INS Don”t understand the importance of the desert do not understand Spanish, and she knows better than she speaks Spanish. The style of the poem is about two characters point of view, would be a poem on one side and all the effect of the poem could not touch the heart. The effect of using the symbol for kids to play a game is an attempt to eliminate the effects of the legality of the matter discussed in the poem is the illegal entry of immigrants and methods used by the border police to prevent such activities. The purpose of the presentation of the children playing a game, the picture of innocence of immigrants and the duty of the border police, but through the use of symbols – the poet said, citing both as usually happens at the border with illegal immigrants. The poem is a dialogue between two characters face – in one stanza, expresses the INS his words what he has to meet his wife and the responses of two stanzas, and how you can earn on their own ground. Although the poem is full of examples of irony, but “can hide and run, but can not go because I have a jeep. I can take you anywhere, “is an excellent example of a sense of superiority expressed by the poorest migrate from Mexico. Chicano writers have said much about the immigrant experience as their parents and grandparents lived. Pat Mora is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of immigration to the United States, crossed a tale of ambivalence, the tragedy, prejudice, persistence and success – a fascinating series of stories.
