An ongoing federally funded research project that has cost taxpayers $2.44 million has concluded, among other things, that “deportation and loneliness” led former illegal aliens in Tijuana, Mexico to use drugs and patronize prostitutes.

Researchers working on the project—“Safer Sex Intervention for Male Clients of Female Sex Workers in Tijuana, Mexico”–did one-hour interviews with 30 men from both the United States and Mexico who patronized prostitutes in Tijuana’s Zona Roja.

The researchers paid the men $20 a piece “to describe and reflect upon their experiences purchasing sex” from prostitutes and answer questions that “explored clients’ motivations for seeking commercial sex, their condom use, perceived STI and HIV risk, and narratives on how socio-cultural and structural factors influence sexual and drug using behaviors.”

“Although deportees were not a specific recruitment target, almost all of the Mexican-born participants had been deported to Tijuana from the U.S., leading to separation from partners and families who remained al otro lado (‘on the other side’),” said an article the researchers published in the April 2011 issue of Social Science and Medicine.

    I could tell the assholes stories about whores in Genova,Naples, Barcelona, and Milan. Copenhagen and Frankfurt, But not for $20. I’d deserve a salary egual to, say, that of Chris Matthews, whose strongest muscle is is right wrist, and whose experience in life is absolutely nil,except for an occacional BJ form some leftover intern in DC. I’d love to make money doing surveys like this.
    $2.44 Million? Holy shit.
    Hey Bad Brad, where did we go wrong?

    I’m glad our money was burned doing this worthless study to divine useless information that anyone could’ve made up for free. Our culture can now consider itself to be elevated to the intellectual and moral level of liberal democrats. We’re so EVOLVED!

    Another example of the criminal government stealing your money then using it to fund a bogus “study” that finds a predetermined conclusion that in turn justifies a bogus solution that will cost more of your tax dollars. Comprende?
