Every year thousands of alien population attempts to enter into the land of United States through different borders and mostly from the southern one where the USA shares its border to Mexico. Their attempts might be the consequences of various reasons like fleeing from the persecution based on the race, religion, certain group, political instability, civil wars and sometimes besides persecution starvation, civil wars and natural calamities might be the reason to leave their original country and move towards/enter into the host country like the USA.
