Notes: Arms are countries (flags are symbols for countries). A (Latin) immigrant is pushed by Mexico to the USA. The USA is pushing him (standing for immigrants/metonymy part for whole) back to Mexico. (Latin) immigrants are not wanted in the USA (American dream, land of opportunities). They can't stay in Latin America due to the lack of opportunities.
