The Americans with Charlie LeDuff: Immigration across the Rio Grande

Posted: Updated:
MCallen, Texas - An onslaught of immigrants are at the southern border. Washington's fighting over it and American taxpayers are paying for it. The families and tens of thousands of kids are left in limbo.

What do you do with them?

Charlie LeDuff is just back from the banks of the Rio Grande to show us the scope of a very serious situation.

Play the video in the player to get a full report from The Americans with Charlie LeDuff.

We haven't seen a wave of women and children like this since 2001 when LeDuff crossed the border with the Mexican cartel. You've got it find it outrageous that 12 years after 9/11 and hundreds of billions of dollars later in homeland security spending, we're right back where we started.
