    Trust me on this.  I work in the Middle East and we often advise refugees to head for Europe rather than the US.

      For example, one of my favorites is that Mexico has much tougher laws on illegal immigration than the US: that immigrants are routinely tossed in Jail. First of all, illegal immigration was decriminalized in Mexico several years ago and most people who are caught are simply deported..and the US itself has people in immigration detention, some for years.
