Rudy is a Mexican-American who was born in the United States. One day while picking up his cousin at a factory, the Immigration Service raids it to get all the illegal aliens that works there. They think Rudy is an illegal because he has no ID and is hiding, so he is exported to Mexico. Over the next few days, Rudy tries to escape and work in order to get home.


Other mistake: At the shop where Cheech works, you can see him lip synching the redhead's lines as she says them.
