The whole thing seemed ironic. A man who reports illegal immigrants spares an illegal immigrant family. This episode helps people get a different perspective on illegal immigrants. It gets people out of their paradigms. My sociology teacher saw this episode and she felt touched how the whole story went. It shows how a low income family survives and shows everyone what most people nowadays take for granted like their comfortable jobs.
It also describes why people escape Mexico in the first place. They want to better themselves, but are not given a chance in Mexico. They had two options: escape to the US and live on very low income OR stay in Mexico and be homeless.
