The director of this movie wanted to pass a few important messages to both the people and the government. “Born in East L.A.” is a movie that anyone can relate to. This movie is full of different languages, different accents, and different cultures. Throughout the movie, there were many obstacles Rudy, the main character, had to face. Some include: when he was in jail, issues with the immigration office, and trying to pass the border.
