Humanitarian crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border

There is no sign of a slowdown in the flood of undocumented children illegally entering the U.S. Some are traveling alone, others are with their parents. Gary Tuchman is in Arizona where he got a first hand look at the treatment they are receiving. Gary also visited the border fence to demonstrate how easy it is to get across.

What happens to the flood of undocumented children crossing the border? 

David Brat says voters' concerns about immigration helped him beat Eric Cantor in their primary race. That victory comes as illegal border crossings are surging. More than 1,000 undocumented people are entering the U.S. through Texas everyday. About 400 of them are children traveling without a parent. Gary Tuchman reports from Arizona on why these children are making the journey and what happens when they get here.

Rancher: Mexican border isn't secure

Dan Bell owns a cattle ranch in Nogales, Arizona, that sits right on the border with Mexico. He's been on the property his whole life and has seen firsthand the violence and tragedy that stem from issues with illegal immigration.

"I don't believe there's a day that goes by - either illegal immigrants or somebody smuggling contraband drugs," Bell told CNN's Gary Tuchman. "There's always somebody coming across."

A tall fence lines some of Bells' land, but mostly the only thing dividing the two countries is a rickety barbed wire fence that can easily be climbed; he makes repairs to it himself.
