Nearly dying on the 'Train of death'

Immigrants heading north through Mexico risk life and limb in hopes of crossing the border into the U.S. For many, the most dangerous part of the journey is a ride on the train that has been nicknamed both 'The Beast' and 'The Train of Death.' Gary Tuchman spoke to a mother who nearly lost an arm in an accident on 'The Beast' that cost her two-year-old son his leg.

Once immigrants reach the U.S., many are facing angry protests. In Oracle, Arizona, demonstrators made their voices heard after learning young undocumented immigrants would be making a local ranch their temporary home. Anderson discussed the volatile situation with Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu.
