Guatemalans begin their journey to the U.S. by risking their lives


For some Guatemalan immigrants, the start of their journey to the U.S. begins with a dangerous ride on a zip line or a raft. They are risking their lives to escape their home country and cross the border into Mexico. Gary Tuchman got a first hand look when he visited a remote area of the Suchiate River along the Guatemala-Mexico border.

Gary sent back behind the scenes photos from his report:

    Out there in the world you are free to go to any country. Philippines to Tokyo, United States to Canada, and wherever else! The United States has tough borders just because another country doesn't, it surely does not mean its wrong to have "easy" borders. I guess its just media being media.
