Humans are like parrots; what society tells them, they repeat and believe to be true. However, this habit often creates unseen barriers that divide and alienate people from one another. In Luis Alberto Urrea’s book The Devil’s Highway, Urrea tells the story of 26 illegal immigrants who are abandoned as they attempt to cross the Mexico-U.S. border. Through their story, Urrea reveals that there are invisible borders that create discrimination, such as language, ethnicity, and economic status.

This set off the priest so he called upon the rest of the 168 Spanish to attack. As Jared Diamond explained “The envoy saw the Spaniards at their most disorganized, told Atahuallpa that they were not fighting men, and that he could tie them all up if given 200 Inca” (79). The Inca lost at least 7,000 men in that battle and it was all because they were being cocky and decided to rush into things not even knowing their military strength. So after all these reasons, the Inca lost their battle against only 168 Spaniards because of their leaders ignorance, the Spaniards military advances, and their use of a very effective ambush.
As they saw America as a new hope and a new start to their lives. Estevan and Esperanza represent the many immigrants that enter America for a new life but are deported and left with nothing.

By censoring them they deny their ability to freely express themselves as people and create huge controversy in the communities of many citizens. One example is comedian George Carlin who was forced to censor the content in his acts because people believed that it was too profane for his fans and other people in the audience. This, of course, created huge controversy due to the fact that forcing people to censor their words is a violation of their first amendment right to free speech.

The Immigration Act of 1924 limited the amount of immigrants to come to America greatly (Congress, U.S.). Although, some Americans were very against the immigration act and Robert Clancy (an American against both the KKK and Republican decisions) even went as far as to call it "un-American" (Rose.
However, in this case the argument he provides does not sound valid as he uses the kid’s example to generalize all the people overseas of all ages who are against American media. The article also makes certain inaccurate assumptions that does not justify Medveds’ thesis. The article makes an assumption that a rational person overseas cannot differentiate between reality and what is portrayed in fictional movies. Medved (2004) also seems to generalize all American directors by saying that they only focus on producing Hollywood movies that show an inaccurate portrayal of American cultural
