All types of illegal,
This review is from: Crossing Over [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):
1. Everybody seems to want to live in the USA
2. Harrison Ford plays an ICE Agent whose job is to seek out illegal immigrants.
3. His major problem is that he has a heart, and sometimes gets deeper into busts than he should.
4. Seemingly different storylines somehow get tied together in the end.
5. It seems that there are no happy endings for illegal immigrants, and those who aid and abet them.
A tired looking Harry Ford leads the pack of gifted actors in this surprisingly gripping movie, which will leave you with every emotion except bored.
Supporting roles are played by Ashley Judd, Ray Liotta, Cliff Curtis, Jim Sturgess and Alice Eve, and there are several scenes which will leave a bad taste in your mouth and some that will break your heart.
This is a movie you may have overlooked, but shouldn't miss as a rental.

Feels like blatant propaganda - if you try to enter USA illegally, you will get your just deserts: Australian girl - deported, Mexican mother - died, Persian girl - deported without her family, Persian guy - arrested for honour killing of his sister, Asian guy - just about escapes by the skin of his teeth thanks to previous Persian honour-killing guy, atheistic Australian Jewish boy - has to reconnect with his Jewish roots and thanks to a kindly rabbi gets his green card.
A very laboured message, but not totally unenjoyable!
