When the INS raids a favorite Mexican restaurant, the Trib staffers investigate illegal workers. Back at the Trib, Lou works with a new assistant, Mrs. Pynchon's niece.
Cyrus is a gentle, laid-back type, who enjoys his job, and smiles a lot. He knows that sending illegals back is a game, a game the illegals win because of perseverance, but he is philosophical about it. He is upset when finds dead woman.
Excellent script. Business for JB include a characteristic back of hand wipe to his mouth when he finds the dead woman. When he runs after the illegals he's "part mountain goat" says Rossi, and the viewer must agreehe can run. Hes in good shape; he lifts the dead woman instead of rolling her over.
"There's Mexico on the other side of that fence. Now that's not much of a border, is it?" "The average Jose, he just wants a job. I don't blame him. If I was in his spot, I'd climb that fence, too."
"I don't deal in answers. What would you do? Issue national identity cards to everybody in the country? Then the liberals and the conservatives would kill you."
