Sad reality of society as told by a dumb smuggler
Not really rating low the show but rating low the whole situation with elden kidd. Some Orta are hard to listen to with him being so dumb and selfish in so many ways. He ruined his family who are a nice, wholesome, and faithful family who appear to have forgiven elden despite the horrible situation he put his family in. He’s a selfish traitor to our country’s laws and standards. He put his own needs for a thrill seeking job above the laws of the land, his better judgment, and even the best interests of others. He was a “successful” coyote many times except for the times he was caught and imprisoned . The show passes him off as smarter than law enforcement even though he’s a low level idiot thinking that his scammer tactics were ingenious. He was a scammer his whole life. He started scamming tourists and clients who paid him to be a tour guide. He couldn’t cut it on his mission as an LDS missionary either. It’s sad how his “successes” as a coyote and human smuggler are resulting in false hopes for others who also try and cross the border, albeit unsuccessfully. He doesn’t think about how much good he could have done by helping those who had already crossed the border by helping transition them, or helping asylum seekers, or even those going through hardships. Just getting people across the border for a self indulging illegal career is hardly admirable despite the justification for his actions. Crossing illegally and side stepping those waiting in line for legalization into the US should be deported immediately. Furthermore, despite 3 years in jail and his wife and family waiting for him, he turned again to the illegal people smuggling life. This resulted in him ultimately losing his family. Makes me sad hat he hurt so many people Including his family, but his wife should have been arrested as well as an accomplice. There is a propaganda feel to the podcast with the host hinting that our immigration laws are bogus and that anyone should just be able to cross the border whenever they want, unchecked. She herself came over to the us illegally but still has a sense of Mexican pride although not one strong enough to want to live in Mexico. There are many people who make a great life for themselves in Mexico- but many don’t want to put the work in. They would rather leave to come do it in the US leaving Mexico to become what it is. Finally, glad that the podcast provides a great deal of secrets that hopefully border patrol get wind of and not fall for the cheap tricks that elden got away with.

Incredible podcast. Incredible story. Wow! I hope there is another season from this host telling someone else’s story. These kind of things need to be told and heard. Bravo!

I needed to hear Elden’s story. The best part of it is that- this is real life. There’s no clear hero, there’s no clear villain- it’s just life: as Grey as it always is!!
