Why don't people who immigrate to the U.S. From central America fight the corruption rather than flee it?

Why can't they use their numbers to the advantage and over throw the corruption, in the long run they'd be helping themselves and their future children.

    They can't be bothered, or simply don't care. They are more interested in living off American taxpayers.

    I did not fight the corruption because there is no welfare and section eight housing in Honduras

    It's not that easy for a poor individual to change the government of their country.

      Sometimes. But these governments are not representative democracies. They are run by strongmen as dictatorships. It's very hard to change an oppressive, dysfunctional system - even in numbers. Not impossible, but certainly not easy.

    Exactly. 🥴

    They can. They just don't want to.

    Would rather come to America and suck off our benefits. They were offered asylum in other countries on the way up here and denied them all.

    They specifically wanted to come to America.

    Why? Because their government sent them up here knowing full well Trump was trying to build a wall.

    I believe these caravans were orchestrated.

    Because Democrats and RINOs aren't only inviting them in with their absurd immigration laws but now they're actively busing them in using & funding shadowy networks of international NGOs.

      That's right, it's all a big conspiracy.

    because the US exploits those nations and it's pretty much impossible for those places /former colonies to have the standard of living as US and Europe because of the structures in place .

    I wish it was so easy.

    Countries like El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras have had unstable governments for centuries. These countries have been beset by military strongmen overthrowing elected officials, by interference from the USA in the form of CIA sabotage, and are now practically run by criminal cartels. How do you get a criminal cartel to respond to normal processes? True reformers get assassinated, and the rest are either bribed or terrified.

    The USA is to blame in more ways than one. If it wasn't for our insatiable appetite for illegal drugs, those criminal cartels might not have become the monsters they are.

    Fight it how, exactly? You cant change a corrupt system when that corruption spreads to the highest levels of government. Anyone who tried would get thrown in jail. And an unarmed, untrained civilian population wouldnt stand a chance against a national military force. Leaving everything youve ever known and moving halfway across the world to a new country is not an easy thing, but a lot of immigrants feel its their only option
