How would you explain ‘run over the border like water’ in the context? Mother has agreed to the theory that looking for some jobs is better than staying at the school of cretins. Because of the oil men’s money running over the border like water. None yet, except running errands for La Perla, which is work but no job. Trying to hire as a scribe to write letters for people in Plaza Santo Domingo was a bad idea. The men with stalls there howled like monkeys, defending their territories. Even though lines are long, and people wait all day. For two days the baker downstairs needed help with mixing the dough, while his wife was away. But now she is back, and he says Run away, we don’t need a beggar boy here. How would you explain ‘run over the border like water’ in the context? Does the ‘border’ in the phrase mean the border between America and Mexico, because in the previous passages, the author said there were many American oil businesses in Mexico. Thanks!

American oilmen used their money like water in a country where it was worth more. They also wished to find money oil with using less money to make even more money. Prime the pump to make the money flow in an unending supply.
