Mexican women, beware!


“Mi Vista” by Kinsee Morlan

Tijuana Craigslist is the stomping ground for asshole Americans promising citizenship to Mexican women. The “men seeking women” posts are disgusting. I found a string of desperate posts by guys of all ages looking for a “nice Mexican wife.”

Here are some posts by dudes offering green cards:

If you’re looking to marry an american to help with green card issues, then look no further. I just ask that you at least be decent looking, and be serious. Please only serious replies only…Respond with a picture, and we’ll go from there…

    Wow. And yet totally unsurprising. I dare you to answer some of the ads, show up, and go along with it until you get the opportunity to quickly chop off their balls. Your skin is dark enough now! It could work!

    Once again, I have to say that your blog is my favorite thing to read online. it’s consistently engaging & important to the borderland–where’s the damn Pulitzer for Stairs to Nowhere?

    ya know its really hard to meet someone really nice here in the US for a # of reasons. time or other such nonsense makes a service like CL usefull to us for many reasons. ill bet if you WERE to awns some of those ads youd find someone whos really serious about meeting someone and doing whats hes promised…like the green card thing or the house ad. i know i have an ad there and im totally sincere about what im offering…maybe a well paying job (if shes able)sending $ to her family, giving her a home and to share my life with – even to the point of helping members of her family come to the US. so LOTS of us aint assholes to many of us craigslist and other internet connections are the best way to cast the widest net …LOL and if you know anyone that wound be intrested pass along my email….Praetorian_omega6@yahoo.com
