Old depiction of a Mexican criminal:
The Bandito is dirty and unkempt, usually displaying an unshaven face, missing teeth, perhaps a gold tooth, and disheveled, oily hair. The face is scared and scowling to complete the easily recognizable stereotype. He is vicious, cruel, treacherous, shifty, and dishonest; psychologically he is irrational, overly emotional, and quick to resort to violence. His inability to speak English or his English with a very heavy Spanish accent is Hollywood's way of signaling his feeble intellect, a lack of brainpower that makes it impossible for him to plan or strategize successfully.
The bandito lives on in American film as Latino drug runners, Puerto Rican toughs in New York, and East LA homeboy gang-bangers.
No no no.....
Today's Mexican bandit is the typical illegal described below, and has done far more damage to the United States than any stereotype character Hollywood could ever dream up.

One other thought:
When Jose's buddy Pedro gets across the border, he will join Jose on that construction job and replace Joe.
And what about Joe?
He just lost his job. He'll soon lose his home, all his assets and go bankrupt. He, his wife and two kids will have to survive on the kindness of friends and relatives... if any.
And Pedro? He will get all the perks Jose gets, and will soon be driving around in his brand new Ford F350 heavy-duty pickup truck, no license or insurance. You can do that when you pay cash.
