How To Cross The Border Illegally

This guide to crossing the border illegally was found in the pedestrian zone of Mexicali. The translation in English is below the image of each page. The Spanish text is at the end.

Illegal crossers are also encouraged to commit other crimes in the U.S. See the “After the crossing” section on page 9.

It is stated in the article that such guides have been published since 1928. Since such guides do not appear to be readily available in English on the Internet, it was thought that a post would be of interest to some English speakers.

The article was posted on the side of a building in the historic center of Mexicali and is about 6-8 feet tall. It is on the opposite side of the plaza from “Our Lady of Guadalupe” Cathedral, just a stone’s throw away from the border fence and a couple blocks east of the border crossing. In the text, it is recommended that illegal crossers go to the local church for help. The Catholic Church is a very major supporter of illegal immigration into the U.S.
