Truck similar to description.

The object of my choosing is a truck that helped my dad get across the border. Without my dad going across the border I might have not been born here in the United States. He took a truck to get across and walked most of the way. In the year 200 he crossed the border and entered the United States. He walked for hours and hours while trying to dodge patrolling cops. If he were to get caught, he would’ve probably been arrested and punished. It was dangerous to be going to the United States at those times because the punishments for trying to go over were harsh. His uncle paid for him to go across and have a better life than he had. He was in debt to his uncle and had to pay him off. He has had a hard life and is relaxing now but still working hard.
