This is a make or break year for many migrants seeking to improve their families' financial conditions. They say they're being persecuted in their homeland, yet they fear being vilified for crossing the border. What to do?

These are not impoverished families south of the border, but a few thousand super rich Americans who are trembling in their U.S. mansions, contemplating expatriation -- do they stay in the USA, or abandon the homeland for some friendlier haven for the super rich?

What's got these fainthearted patriots on the brink of renouncing their citizenship is nothing but a craven fear of a modest tax increase.

"We have people who are totally spooked about the prospect of a Warren presidency and a wealth tax," explains a New York lawyer who helps rich clients expatriate.

In 2006 it was newsworthy that Jenna Bush had her purse stolen in a club in Buenos Aires under the noses of secret service agents. She was their to settle a purchase of 300,000 acres in Paraguay over the Guarani Aquifer, the largest fresh water reservoir in the world. Tha this an area larger than all 5 boroughs of NYC. That the whole became newworthy is indicative of the Bush family's lack of intelligence. The same purchase by a Rockefeller which surely has happened is not public. 99% of the nuclear reactors and 100% of the nuclear weapons are in the Northern Hemisphere. The .00001% have been establishing havens for decades. They know that the air and water of North and South do not mix quickly or thoroughly. When the apocalypse happens in the North whether through sea level rise severe weather impact or nuclear war the South is safer. The Russians know this. The defense minister recently announced the development of a "Revemge Missile". A nuclear powered cruise missile capable of stating aloft indefinetly or hibernating in Antarctica and targeting anywhere in the world. The minister said that missile is for any who think they can start and escape a nuclear war by retiring to their "safe havens" in the South.
