Following the trail from Guatemala to the U.S. border

Last night, Gary Tuchman reported from the Guatemalan border, where U.S. bound immigrants are paying $1.30 to take a rickety raft across a river into Mexico. The dangers don't end there. Gary is following the trail that countless immigrants are using to travel north through Mexico while putting their lives at risk in hopes of reaching America.

Gary mentioned the train that many immigrants use on this journey derailed. Karl Penhaul spent time on board and shows why it is nicknamed the train of death.

    If we bend laws for the Mexican immigrants were going to have to do for the Palestine's, Israelites, Hamas in Gaza, Sudanese, Lebanese and EVERYBODY else and sure enough they'll bring the fights, rapes, and wars on American soil. The ploy that it is women and children is all theater, those governments should be force to accept their responsibilities. We want to live in Beverley Hills to escape the killing in Detroit who's going give us a free ride

    I feel bad for these children, but not more than I do for ANY of the suffering children in the world, and ESPECIALLY for those suffering in the U.S.! We can't even take care of our own!

    These people are coming from a land of extreme violence – that's all they know – and we somehow expect them to integrate into society and become productive citizens?? It's like releasing prison inmates. THERE'S NO JOBS!!! When they realize this is NO LONGER the land of milk and honey – they too will resort to violence!!!

    My parents – now in their mid 80s see better than I how bad things have become and they worry for their children and grandchildren. I'm California born and raised. I've seen firsthand the change ILLEGAL immigrants make! I'm SICK of hearing how they do the jobs nobody else will do! BS! Employers couldn't exploit them if they weren't here! Which is the REAL reason behind the farce! Money!!!

    AND WHAT A HIDEOUS SLAP IN THE FACE FOR THOSE WHO IMMIGRATE LEGALLY!!!!

    DEFINE ENGLISH AS THE NATION'S LANGUAGE!!!

    SECURE OUR BORDERS NOW!!!
