Can anyone tell me how easy it is to sneak into the US from Mexico preferrably on foot then hitch to New Orleans. Im white and blonde so can easily blend in as an American but il have a backpack. Will be looking into doing this next month. Need to get back and work because im broke as shit

Swim across the rio grande, maybe the border patrol won't shoot ya. lol

Why not just cross the border legitimately at a crossing. Probably less stress overall.

Trains coming into the U.S. Are heavily scrutinized

After 9/11 this country has taken the issue of infiltration to a new level. If some crusties can talk about entering the country, who knows who might be listening? Sorry if I missed this, where is your citizenship from?

Once you get past the actual border, youre almost guaranteed to go through a secondary checkpoint run by Homeland Security. Better have your papers with you....

The border situation is fucked, but people still cross it every day.

People also die and get arrested everyday too.

Buy an amtrak ticket from the US to canada, Amtrak tickets are 100% refundable if you do it in time. print out the receipt and show it to CBP when you cross the border legally.
Say if you cross at TJ/san diego, buy a san diego-vancouver bc ticket for a few days later, refund it as soon as you are in.
There are a lot of mexican workers in this country who used to visit home once a year and see their families, due to increased border security now very few do so, they just stay here year after year working.

Good idea but wouldnt work, I need to show proof of leaving North America not just the US for US customs

just make a fake ticket? seems less risky than solo cruising across one of the most militarized areas in the developed world

Alright, SI check it out where are you in Mexico I live in Laredo TX,n Nuevo Laredo Mexico Laredo TX.us border and if you got your tourist visa it's no problem usually if your white they just flag you through with just saying American citizen and why tree are plenty of places you could swim across most so the good sports ate syndicated bby the cartels so"plomo o plata" right., let me know once you hit the border front and maybe I can help you out better, but again where are you at??
