Yesterday I spoke with Daniel Pace, the current owner of a movie option for Contrabando. Daniel lives in Phoenix, Arizona. His wife is a realtor.
Daniel told me that quite a few Mexicans are leaving the state, walking away from homes and the mortgages attached to them. Whole apartment complexes are emptying. Jobs are being abandoned and are not being filled by new "American" workers. How many people you know aspire to be a lettuce picker?
I suspect this may be interesting to watch over the next couple of years.
