It’s a great place to experience the unfairness of being an immigrant! The experience that one has being here, help one see how life is a in thermal and the torture that they get for being an illegal immigrant. It is different here at thermal because people tend to be much better with each other and home is where they find it safe in order to go forward and achieve their dreams for the future of the generations to come.
Thermal is kind of in the middle of nowhere next to Indio and Coachella in Southern California. Thermal mainly consists of farmland with a couple of housing areas. There is a decent-sized casino, a high school, and a sheriff station. The only problem with Thermal's location is that it is far from the freeway.
