Spending 5000 on an illegal trip to PR is a really bad investment.

Chasing the American dream is a worst idea if you’re poverty-struken. You either die trying, reach there and live enough to suffer and become a burden of society, or choose neither of them and stay in their area where it has no jobs, no security, and become a burden of society.
