Relentless conditions and treatment in Mexico account for the border crossings since many Latinos and Latinas are being exploited with poor wages and unsuitable living conditions. Mexico, especially Tijuana, has a reputation for having a tough and violent atmosphere which may interfere with raising a family and trying to live a safe, and practically untouchable life. Instead of there being a prominent government to rule the city, the control lays in the hands of criminal organizations who have been dominating cities in Mexico.
In Elie Wiesel’s Night he and many of the other prisoners felt victimized by the guards and their use of power over them. One example of abuse and dehumanization is Franek, the foreman.

As mentioned before African Americans did not get the political freedom that was actually granted to them not only because of their race and low standing but they were “ ‘unfitted for the proper exercise of political duties… blacks needed a period of probation and instruction’ “ (Document D).

Discrimination among the people turned the society into a battle field where one have to fight hard in order to survive. People normally ignore the idea of discrimination like the baobabs trees in the story of the “Little Prince”, but like the baobabs when it gets ignored it will grow big and tear the whole planet apart.
