How can a poor person from mexico come up with that kind of mullah. If you don't like my suggestions, come up with some of your own. They should be good for a laugh.
The answer is, they have to work it off. There are brothels and sweat shops all over the country where women are basically slave labor until they have "paid off" their new owners. It can take years for them to pay off as they are often only paid a dollar or two an hour. They are also often required to pay back what their owners say it costs to house, cloth and feed them.

The men fair little better as they are often require to do the hardest, hottest dirtiest and most dangerous work there is. Again the pay will be very low and other expenses are added to the totals.

Not unlike the old "company towns" of the early industrial revolution. They would lure in workers with promises of good pay. But the workers would soon find out the ONLY housing was owned by the company and the rents were steep. The ONLY store was also owned by the company and the prices were high. By the time they figured it out they were trapped.

Like the song says

"You load sixteen tons, what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store"
Thanks from Hollywood

Yes. The most likely explanation is what the title of my thread suggested. They sell themselves into slavery. But I can't fault them a lot for it. Because I once basically did the same thing by joining the military.

Why are you agreeable to bubba and a dick to me. Also, though are no more debtors prisons, you can still get thrown into jail for owing money. I wouldn't doubt if there is also some form of fallout that can happen to the families of those who die owing money.

Illegal immigration is the modern slave trade.

Chinese owned business here. It can cost upwards of $30,000 to get smuggled into the US from China. Most don't have anywhere near that so wind up spending years working off their debt to their American masters. And if you die or run away, they will go after your family, even back in China.
