population, 30.1 percent of all US immigrants, and 10 percent of all Mexicans. The population of Mexican immigrants in America has grown 20 times its size since 1960. (Stoney, Batalova, 2013). It cannot be argued that Mexican immigration is an uncommon occurrence within the United States. As recorded by the Pew Research Center on Mexican immigrants in the United States, more than one half of the Mexican immigrants in the country are unauthorized. The Department of Homeland Security estimates that as of 2010, 11.4 million unauthorized aliens reside within the country. Of the 11.4 million, an estimated 6.7 million of those illegal immigrants are of Mexican descent. (DHS, 2010). Statistical evidence makes obvious the prevalence of Mexican immigration into the US in terms of number.
The arrest of Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman was a victorious circumstance for the Mexican government, who have been closing down on his presence for the recent past years. Mexican authorities began taking down high ranked members of the Sinaloa Cartel including two of Guzman’s main associates. On February 22, 2014, the world’s most wanted man had also been captured. Although the biggest drug lord has been captured, the crime and violence left behind cannot be forgotten.
Joaquin Guzman best known as “El Chapo” is the world's greatest drug lord. He has been captured three times and has been able to escape twice, once in a laundry basket and the second time he managed to escaped in an underground tunnel built in his shower cell. He was recently recaptured after being fugitive for about six months. Joaquin entered the drug business as a teenager and later became in charge of the Sinaloa cartel. “He shops and ships by some estimates more than half of all the cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana that come into the United States”(Penn). Many argue that El Chapo is a really bad person that only does a lot of harm to the citizens in Mexico, but what most don't know is that he actually helps some of them.

Immigration is one of the most important issues that the United States faces and thus has misperceptions such as how immigration affects the workforce and economy, the size and composition of the immigrants, and the budgetary impact of unauthorized immigration.

There are major things debated in the presidential election every day, but the biggest one is immigrants. Immigrants should be allowed to come into the US and be able to work and live here.

Pablo Escobar was born in 1949 in Colombia to a father was a peasant farmer and mother who was a school teacher (Thompson, 1996).
