A lot of songs from the North TigersThey talk about how bad it is for Mexicans who decide to cross the border into the United States and seek a better future for themselves and their respective families, who often stay in their nation, leaving a feeling of deep sadness in everyone.

In this corrido it would not be the exception, since, if we listen to the lyrics, we can realize that the musical artists are narrating a justification or a defense before all the people who discriminate against them for arriving in the United States illegally.

In addition, they refer to the fact that some territories of the United States in the past were part of Mexicobut they were violently snatched in order to be annexed to their nation, so, in theory, those who cross the supposed border enter an area that is actually Aztec.

“They painted the line so that I could jump over it and they call me an invader. It is a well-marked error, eight states were taken from us, who is the invader here? I am a foreigner in my land, and I do not come to give you war, I am a working man. And if history does not lie, here the powerful nation settled in glory “are some of the phrases of the song.
