ABSTRACT
The author relates his experience in disguising as a Latin American illegal migrant applying for a job in the U.S. It is easy to find easy illegal employment for him because bogus job agents are everywhere. In their office's front door, they post "Immediate Work." People on the streets and shopkeepers seemed surprised for his innocence on how to secure illegal work permits. For $140, a fake Social Security card and greed card were immediately processed and given to him. He worked in a L'Oreal factory.
