for even more wealth, e.g. Kyra dreams of owning the Da Ros place. This shows their materialistic attitudes which appear to the reader as absurd and unfair towards people like the Rincón’s. Their materialistic attitude is also shown in other instances, e.g. Delaney always wears the latest hiking gear. The Rincóns do not own any property themselves and are glad when they have enough to eat while Kyra and Delaney are stunned over trivial problems, such as a dent in the car’s hood. This indicates that from the viewpoint of the Rincóns the Mossbachers would have already fulfilled their American Dream.5.The way the De Ros house works as a symbol is by Kyra wanting more than what she has. For Kyra the house resembles the American Dream in the eyes of the Rincon family. For the immigrant family they would like to eventually live in an American house and become citizens and raise their own family. Kyra has all of that however, she would enjoy it more if her dream of living in the De Ros house came true. Both Kyra and the Rincon family are working to something more.
6.The feelings aroused in Delaney by Candido are a result of Delaney’s contemplations andin combination with his thoughts of other illegal immigrants. It is unfair to pose all the hate, anger and fear generated by an entire group of people onto one person, without truly knowing that person, and so the feelings conjured up by Delaney are in fact unreasonable. It is ironic that he feels the way he does due to the way in which he for Candido represents the goal. Money, a home, a family together, these are what Candido came to the United States to secure; The American Dream.7.The fact that Kyra is a realotor and her husband Delaney is conservationist is ironic itself.From home Delaney writes a monthly column called “Pilgrim at Topanga Creek” about the local ecology for `Wide Open Spaces`. When he does not write, he is out walking and observing nature. Delaney does not approve of the wall because he deliberately moved to the development to live near nature. In Delaney`s life everything has its place. While Kyra works at her office, he takes care of Jordan. Kyra is responsible for closing up five houses every night, six days a week. She is sceptical about Mexicans because they scare buyers away from the houses that she wants to sell. Therefore, Kyra approves of the wall.
